Politicians invest about UAH 2 billion in local election campaign

Politicians invest about UAH 2 billion in local election campaignPolitical election campaigns in Ukraine remain one of the most expensive in Europe. Politicians are spending billions of hryvnia for their local council election campaigns, TV news channel "24" reports.

"This is not about bribery, but about the competition to become attractive to voters. Experts have calculated nearly UAH 2 billion. This is the money that politicians have spent on their political campaigns. And every next elections turn out to be more expensive, " the TV report says.

A large outdoors billboard is worth only UAH 3,500. Throughout Ukraine there are about 20,000 of those. Therefore, it amounts to more than UAH 100 million. Media owners have pocketed more than UAH 600 million during the election race. And that figure includes only official advertising, excluding special paid reports or so-called "unofficially paid PR information".

Even for parliamentary elections politicians had spent less. And all because now there are many new parties that came into existence or those that received a new brand. And local elections for them are a low start for a forthcoming election campaign to the Parliament.
