Chernovetsky undermines ratings of Party of Regions?

Chernovetsky undermines ratings of Party of Regions?

Experts of the Agency of Situations Modeling (ASM) think that the Party of Regions sufficiently reduces its rating, making stake on Mykhaylo Dobkin and Leonid Chernovetsky. Deputy Director of the ASM Olexiy Golobutsky stated.

“By supporting such odious mayors, moreover by entrusting them to hold election campaign, the Party of Regions takes automatically all their negative. It means that the Party of Regions will be responsible for tariffs raise, parks and public gardens destruction, non-transparent privatization, etc. And the negative from such support can influence not only on electorate of Kyiv and Kharkiv, but on whole Ukraine”.

Olexiy Golobutsky emphasized that such actions leveled the social constituent part of the Party of Region’s program.
