Sales, however, were down 1.7 percent compared to September of last year. ...

The election is also aimed at securing further legitimacy for Kiev's new pro-Western direction after "Euromaidan" protests last winter, broadly supported by the West but denounced by Russia as a coup after Yanukovich's fall. Opinion polls suggest the new assembly will be dominated by pro-Europe parties, including Poroshenko's bloc. ...
