Ukraine: Election Votes for Sale Via Social Network

A screenshot of the VKontakte vote auction page.

Odessablog draws attention [en] to a VKontakte page [ru] used by those who are willing to sell their Oct. 28 election votes. Roma Lexikov, one of the very few users who posted on the page to protest the practice, wrote:

You better sell your body – you'll make more money this way! If I could, I'd take away citizenship from the slaves like you and chase you out of the country! […] Because of people like you, we haven't managed to build a normal country in 20 years!
