The representative of the "UDAR": we are shocked by a mass bribery of voters
"At the time we have upsetting and unpleasant cases of violation recorded by our observers," - said in the Uzhhorod Press Club the representative of the Party of Regions Yurii Belyakov. Among the violations named by Belyakov are: one PEC member has a poster for the "Batkivshchyna" hanging on the balcony, another member of the commission did not want to give a ballot to a voter because he came to the station with agitation leaflet, somewhere they gave out ballots to people without passports, in Chop they carried ballots out of stations. In addition, Belyakov said that members of the party "UDAR" were agitating near the stations and bribed voters.
Representative of the "UDAR" Volodymyr Bilonka said that information from the PR is a substitution of notions: "The site controlled by the PR stated that on Mynaiska street I was allegedly handing a list of names of candidates for deputies to an observer. This is a substitution of notions. This is their reaction to what they did in the morning at school No.20, where the bribing of voters was recorded. The Party of Regions understand that they are losing and provoke the "UDAR" party members and members of election commissions," - he said.
According to Mr. Volodymyr, in the morning he already visited about 18 stations and can say that basically the Party of Regions do not even hide the fact that its representatives "motivate" voters. "There are cars near the stations, some people come up to these cars and introduce themselves. The cars mainly with Slovak license plates. We have videos and photos of people in black SUVs giving money." Also Bilonka added that DEC delivered additional ballots to some polling stations. "I am shocked by the massive bribery in these elections", - concluded the representative of "UDAR."
