Hromadske journalist Andrii Saichuk for his “Pered Vyborom" ("Before the Elections") segment went to the village of Semenivka and Sloviansk to observe the election campaign process there.In Semenivka, he talks with locals about the process of rebuilding and the lack of financial help from the government. For them, the destruction from the war is their primary concer - voting is secondary.In Sloviansk he visited various party candidates and saw the ways in which the candidates are trying to vying (or buying) the public’s vote. It seems that the old system of voter bribery has not been completely destroyed.
