The October 26 local elections in the city of Mariupol were blocked by a local coalition of prodemocratic forces protesting against serious falsifications.

The whole city is actually controlled by the Yanukovich elites. Even the ballots were printed in the printing house controlled by the Metinvest group and the city electoral comission was placed in the building of the Illich Steel Works owned by the same Metinvest group.

Serhiy Zakharov known for his installations and graffiti satirizing pro-Russian fighters in his native Donetsk used the opportunity in Mariupol to tell the people what they can face if vote for the pro-Russian politicians or let them falsify the vote.

Here is Radio Liberty interview with Serhiy on his Mariupol experience of educating people (in Russian).
