I think that people must know what is happening in their community, hometown, in their native country, an in the world. There is a saying, “Forewarned is forearmed” which means that if you possess information you are better equipped for coping with a situation. In Ukraine there are many informative newspapers, and “the Facty” (“the Facts”) is one of them.

The latest issue of our local newspaper contains articles on current events in our town. The editorial presents the general picture of preterm mayor elections, the mayor being under investigation for public money misappropriation.
The editor provides detailed analysis of candidates’ electoral campaigns and promises. He draws our attention to their similarity and the candidates’ unfair play involving the use of black PR and giving unrealistic promises. In my opinion, the aim of the article is to draw people’s attention to their responsibility for the choice they make. Sad as it is, the keynote of the article is that little has changed in our town in 25 years of independence and that people’s mood can be described as apathy.
