CHESNO Starts the Mass-scale Dissemination of Leaflets with Candidate Analysis Results

Today, the CHESNO campaign starts its nation-wide campaign of informing the voters about results of the monitoring of MP candidates for their conformity with integrity criteria.

About half a million CHESNO leaflets with a list of violators of integrity criteria will be disseminated in 25 regions of the country within three days. CHESNO campaigners will also organise targeted events for the provision of information to the voters in some constituencies of Kyiv and Zhytomyr Oblasts, as well as oblasts in the East and the West of the country.

The leaflets will be disseminated by about 400 volunteers and participants of the CHESNO campaign in all oblasts of Ukraine. Everyone, who wants to help with the dissemination of results of the integrity analysis of party-ticket and constituency candidates, is invited to contact CHESNO Press Service at info.chesno@gmail.com, 067 622 71 12 for the co-ordination of efforts.

The leaflets with analysis results were produced with the support from international charities and at the expense of funds received on CHESNO's charity account. For instance, CHESNO managed to gather UAH 112,830 received as charitable aid for the production and dissemination of leaflets with analysis results.

The instruction on the dissemination of CHESNO leaflets is available on the web site at http://www.chesno.org/media/files/InstrukciaCHESNO.pdf.

Electronic leaflet specimens for the Internet dissemination are available from the official web site at http://www.chesno.org/gallery/70/.
