"The new charges against Korban are directly connected with the election of the mayor in Dnipropetrovsk. The party considers it to be a political leverage and steps of the authorities in favor of the Opposition bloc candidate. We expect a new session of the court regarding the imposition of a pretrial restriction today," the statement reads.
The spokesperson also suggested that the case would be considered by the Pechersk district court of Kyiv.
According to the document, head and member of Dnipropetrovsk election commissions claimed threats and obstruction of their activities by Hennadii Korban between Sept. 30 and Oct. 31.
