Amazing campaign in Chernigov in future local elections this autumn will largely predetermine the main trends. We will not dwell on the details, focusing on strategic matters.
It turned out that the Presidential Administration is ready to take a direct part in the electoral process. In contrast to the early parliamentary elections, Chernigov demonstrated this clearly. And let the official documents confirming this fact, were not found and it is unlikely there will be, political experts and journalists suddenly became clear that Petro Poroshenko ready to take personal control of the processes that can have far-reaching consequences.
