Minsk, “Amkodor”: people who aren't members of Lukashenka's electoral team, are told to collect signatures in his support

The company's employees have reported that the ideologist of the enterprise had summoned an officer of each structural subdivision, and handed them signature sheets so that they would start collecting signatures in support of the nomination of the candidacy of Aliaksandr Lukashenka.

The sheets (in the photo) are empty, the surnames of the members of the electoral team aren't written in them. Those who were ordered to collect signatures, in their turn, aren't members of the electoral headquarters of Mr. Lukashenka.

It should be noted that the facts of the collection of signatures in support of presidential contender Aliaksandr Lukashenka during working hours, at workplaces and with the use of threats have been registered in almost all large cities, predominantly at state enterprises, state and social institutions.
