Presidential candidate of Ukraine, incumbent Head of State Petro Poroshenko has spent UAH 415 million on his campaign, head of the candidate's campaign headquarters Vitaliy Kovalchuk has said.
"Today, UAH 415 million has been spent from the election fund of Petro Poroshenko," said Kovalchuk in an interview with Interfax-Ukraine.
According to him, the election campaign of Poroshenko is transparent and is financed independently from previously officially declared funds.
