On 6 September, the election commission of Salihorsk-based constituency No. 68 issued a warning to candidate Viktar Malochka for a number of violations of election campaigning rules.

In particular, Viktar Malochka was warned for moving his election picket. The election commission said the move was “a street manifestation”, which had to be applied for two days before its conduct.

Apart from that, the candidate was accused of illegal distribution of election leaflets, including those having the logo of the “For Free Elections” campaign. Meanwhile, Mr. Malochka says he and his campaign team have nothing to do with the production and distribution of the printed materials.

The candidate has already submitted a complaint to the constituency election commission, saying that the warning was illegal.
