"Something incredible happened at the last election: patriot Dmytro Lubinets won in the Donetsk region (60th election division). He gave a drubbing to the current MP, the Party of Regions member, and the opposition bloc protege Oleksander Ryzhenkov," he writes.

According to Firsov, Lubinets' victory is a hard fact but the Party of Regions is trying to "muddy the waters" organizing the collection of signatures to cancel the election results.

"The employees of holding company Metinvest, owned by Rinat Akhmetov, conduct public hearings in four districts of the Donetsk region saying that the victory in the precinct was stolen. The support of candidate Ryzhenkov must be expressed to challenge the results," Firsov writes.

"People usually give such petitioners a brush off, but Ryzhenkov decided to have a fit of generosity. Everyone who signs the petition for his support is granted UAH 300," he says.

Firsov states that Ryzhenkov "wants to buy more votes than he won on election day and then seek to cancel the election results for separate precincts or across the entire county, resting on these lists."
