Hrytsenko submits documents to register as presidential nominee
Leader of NGO Civil Stance and MP Anatoliy Hrytsenko has submitted documents to the Central Election Commission to register as a candidate for the post of Ukraine's president.
He said near the commission's entrance on Wednesday that he is a self-nominee and that the Ukrainian people had collected funds for his deposit. The politician said that his own funds in the deposit amounted to UAH 10,000, while individual contributions collected from citizens ranged between UAH 5 and UAH 50,000.
"I will participate in these [presidential] elections to protect people and the country I love, and to declare war against a state - a state of [National Bank of Ukraine Governor Volodymyr] Stelmakh, [the ex-MP wanted in connection with the murder of a resident of Kirovohrad region, Viktor] Lozinsky, and [ex-judge Ihor] Zvarych, among whom it's hard for honest people to live and among whom there are bribe-takers, fraudsters, criminals, and killers," he said.
Hrytsenko is the second presidential nominee.
As reported, well-known lawyer Oleh Riabokon was on Tuesday the first to submit his documents to register as a presidential candidate.
