Vitsebsk opposition candidates Alena Famina and Aliaksei Haurutsikau have not been able to have their election fliers printed for five days already, as they suspect sabotage by a local printing firm to prevent the candidates from distributing the leaflets at today’s meetings with voters.

The candidates fear the meetings with voters will not be so efficient, as only color posters for out-door use have been produced yet.

“They have repeatedly told us to wait till the next day. I guess, this is called sabotage,” says Aliaksei Haurutsikau, running in constituency No. 18.
