One can find some unexplainable paradoxes during analysis of election data in certain towns of the Vitsebsk region.

For instance, there are two candidates at the Navalukomlskaya election constituency #28 on elections to the Vitsebk regional Council of Deputies: Pavel Kharytonau, Director General of the Vitsebskenerga power plant, and his direct subordinate Ivan Yubko, guard of Lukoml hydropower, a Vitsebskenerha branch.

Yauhen Lysionak, director of transport enterprise #16 in Hlybokaye, a candidate in the Chyrvonaarmeyskaya constituency #10, lives in the village of Sharkaushchyna that doesn’t belong to the constituency he is registered in. However, there's no doubt that Lysionak will be elected a member of the Hlybokaye district council, as he is the only candidate in the constituency.
