Pre-election billboards appeared in Ukraine with the image of President Petro Poroshenko with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.
Netizens noticed that by placing such images, the team of the head of state violated two laws. In the headquarters Poroshenko recognized it.
“Putin, of course, was not asked for consent. And it is natural. What is surprising is the number of Ukrainian experts and politicians who spoke out in defense of Putin’s violated rights. Among them, unfortunately, and official representatives of the candidate Zelensky, “- said in a statement staff Poroshenko on Facebook.
At the same time, they say that Poroshenko’s opposition to Putin, and not Zelensky, with whom they entered the second round of presidential elections, does not mean that the head of state considers Zelensky to be an agent of the Russian Federation.
“The task of the advertising story is to remind the country that, in the face of such external calls, a strong President and Supreme Commander, a professional, well-educated and experienced diplomat, a skilled negotiator with high international prestige is needed …
The plot of the board does not mean that the Poroshenko team considers Zelensky to be Putin’s agent. Absolutely not … “- said in a statement.
It should be noted that the Law “On Advertising” prohibits the use of a person’s image without his consent, and the Law “On the election of the President of Ukraine” prohibits participation in non-election campaigns of non-Ukrainian citizens.
As you know, since April 8, the election campaign of candidates who passed the second round of presidential elections on April 21 is allowed in Ukraine.
