 Opposition: Regime is Preparing Another Smear Campaign on the First National Channel

Opposition's HQ found out that front candidates from pro-government parties are planning a smear campaign that will take up most of the advertisement slots on the First Channel next week.

As we were informed by the opposition, "the information in thisregard came from journalists working on the Channel. According totheir information, the frontmen for the ruling party are buying upads on the First National Channel (UT-1) all the way to the end ofthe election campaign."

United opposition is confident that these frontmen are acting ondirect orders from the Presidential Administration.

"They are being used because that is what they were created for. Itis indicative that all smear campaigns are aimed at Batkivschyna.It means only one thing - the regime is afraid of the Unitedopposition and it is trying to confuse people to have theoportunity to continue robbing the country and build 'improvement'for the Family and Yanukovuch clan," noted the opposition.

"United opposition addresses the management of UT-1 to stop theprovocation before it commences and to forbid using the statechannel as a sesspool for lies. This demand expands to themanagement of the State Committee on Television and Radio. However,most importantly, we address the Presidential Administrationdemnding that they call back the candidates they sicked on theopposition since it is obvious who is standing behind thesedummies," noted Batkivschyna.

The opposition also called on the people to "not believe dirtyslurs maniacally published by the regime on the daily basis."Batkivshyna also drew the attention of international observers tothe information provocations by the ruling party on the statechannel.
