According to Brest human rights defender Raman Kisliak, the list of authorized canvassing venues in the city severely restrains the rights of Presidential candidates.

The activist mentions Article 25 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, as one of the universally recognized rights brutally violated by official decisions of Brest city executive authorities, by authorizing only a few locations in a city with over 300.000 population.

‘It turns out, that some candidates are allowed to meet with voters only in ‘reservations’, while others can do it anywhere, with the use of their authority,’ says Mr. Kisliak.
