Now the president is on the road to the regions of Ukraine. For example, yesterday Zelensky visited Zaporozhia, today he was in Kherson.
In his speeches, Zelensky constantly uses the phrase “Ukraine is you”, which is the official electoral slogan of a political party in the 2020 local elections.
And during a working trip to Zaporozhia, a candidate from the Servant of the People was presented at the elections of the mayor.
All these cases are manifestations of latent agitation. Today that was stated by Committee of Voters of Ukraine:
Such actions of the President and members of the Cabinet of Ministers are a manifestation of the use of official powers for political purposes, have signs of political corruption and are an abuse of administrative resources. Given that the president’s working trips are financed from the state budget, such actions can also be seen as a manifestation of covert agitation at the expense of taxpayers. According to the Unified Web Portal for the Use of Public Funds, on average, one regional flight of the President costs about UAH 250,000 . At the same time, it should be taken into account that these figures do not take into account the significant funds that the state spends on the protection and security of the first persons.
