 "My Men Will Definitely Vote" – Aidar Combat Melnychuk

Fighters of the Aidar battalion will vote in early elections to the Verkhovna Rada: the lists for them have already been submitted to the respective polling stations.

According to Censor.NET citing Ukrinform, Aidar battalion commander Serhii Melnychuk stated this at a press-conference in Ivano-Frankivsk.

"My men will vote. There are constituencies, the lists are submitted, and they will definitely vote," Melnychuk assured.

He noted that part of the battalion will vote in Starobilsk, and others in the city of Shchastia.

Serhii Melnychuk added that the elections could be disrupted in the constituency #105, where the leader of the race is a representative of Aidar.

In general, "the fact that the elections take place during the war is wrong, because everybody should be in equal conditions," the battalion commander said.

He also noted the fact that many fighters are running for the Parliament.

"I counted to 18 (Aidar candidates), then I have lost my nerve. It is everyone's right to run. I did not object anybody running," he assured and added that if he gets into the Rada after Oct. 26, he will not leave the command of the battalion.
