The candidate of the Tell the Truth and the Belarusian Popular Front party received 500 thousand rubles, the leader of the Belarusian Left - 210 thousand. No money has been transfered to the accounts of other potential candidates. But this is only the data of July 25, it appeared on the CEC website today.

Currently, only five nominating groups have taken advantage of this opportunity. The website dedicated to the election of 2015, has information on the accounts of Tatstsiana Karatkevich, Syarhei Kalyakin, Zhanna Ramanouskaya, Mikalai Ulakhovich and Viktar Tsyareshchanka.

This year, the state is not going to allocate the candidates and their nominating groups money, but the maximum amount of funds that can be used legally by the candidates has increased to 1 billion 620 million rubles.
