Party of Regions members from across the region gathered on Poshtova sq. in Uzhgorod (photo)
Today, 26 October, on the Poshtova Square in Uzhgorod from the very morning they have been mounting a large stage. In the evening, it became clear why. Apparently, the Party of Regions decided to spend the last day of campaigning with a loud event, so they arranged in the regional center a large concert, which gathered students and party members from across the region.
Buses, near which young and older people dress in white and blue colors, have stopped on the Narodna sq.. People say they came from Mizhhirya. When asked if they have been paid money they just smile.
The crowd on the Poshtova Square also consists mostly of young people - in their words, TSU students. They say that they herded to the "festival" almost all employees of Uzhgorod City Council (the Mayor of Uzhgorod Victor Pogorelov is a member of the ruling party), but also brought employees of Mizhhirya DSA. As uzhgorod.in previously reported, extras for this concert have been gathered by unfortunately quite "traditional", but no less frustrating, "voluntary-compulsory" method.
Nearby, on the Uralska street, another interesting scene is happening. There, just under the walls of the city prosecutor's office, stalls are working, they grill kebabs and sell alcoholic beverages. Of course, this is the best place for drinking!
