A hand lying on a constitution or Bible — this is the very moment when the elected candidate becomes the president. This is the moment of his or her transformation into a very powerful instrument. There is also hope for a change for many. The hope that is not always fulfilled, since we can often see how a promising candidate turns into a power-obsessed dictator, which results in stagnation, political and economical, and the hand on the constitution or Bible remains the same for decades.

The series is inspired by the current political situation in the region I live in. This year there is going to be a presidential election in Belarus and Belarusians have no illusions on who is going to win. Again. And also Russia is about to change its constitution so that one person can run for the presidency more than two times in a row.
