According to Tatsiana Seviarynets, the coordinator of the campaign team of the pretender for president Vital Rymasheuski in the Vitsebsk region, she knows at least three cases when residence of Miory were forced to revoke the signatures they had put in support of nomination of Mr. Rymasheuski as a presidential candidate.

The member of the campaign team Iryna Valter said that a 90-year-old resident had asked whether her pension wouldn’t be taken away after she signed for him. Then this woman wrote an application to revoke her signature.

A total of 595 people signed for Vital Rymasheuski in Miory. Now representatives of the local authorities come to them with check-ups, telling that ‘Vital Rymasheuski is a bad candidate, he would take the pensions away, disorganize the country, etc.’ says Tatsiana Seviarynets.
