No unity among Ukraine nationalists ahead of elections
The National Corps organization says it does not support the decision of the Svoboda Party to support Ruslan Koshulynsky as a single candidate from the nationalist camp and offered to nominate their own leader, MP Andriy Biletsky instead.
"The National Corps does not support the decision of representatives of individual nationalist organizations to name Ruslan Koshulynsky a single candidate from the nationalist camp,” the organization said in a statement.
The party notes that the decision to support Koshulinsky was "made behind the scenes, without wide discussion and in breach of the manifesto of nationalist forces."
"Those who signed that 'document' have no real authority among millions of Ukrainian nationalists,” stressed the National Corpus.
In turn, the party nominated its leader, MP Andriy Biletsky, as a candidate from the nationalist forces.
As UNIAN reported earlier, on October 14, the leader of the All-Ukrainian Union Svoboda Oleh Tiahnybok proposed to nominate his deputy Ruslan Koshulynsky as a single presidential candidate from the nationalist camp.
At the same time, Tiahnybok noted that he would not run for president.
Recall that during the 2014 elections, Tiahnybok won 1.16% of the vote.
The next presidential election in Ukraine is scheduled for March 31, 2019.
