“We all remember Stalin’s famous saying “It does not matter how people vote, it matters how the votes are counted”. In our view, today’s regime is actually trying to live by this statement, and especially in areas where the Opposition Block has the greatest support”, – said Yuriy Boiko, the leader of the Opposition Bloc.
Yuriy Boyko also emphasized that the most typical violations that took place during the counting of votes, and observed by the Opposition bloc for the past day, linked to three factors.
“First, it’s an invasion of armed groups into polling stations and dumping of previously prepared ballots,” – said the leader of the opposition.
In particular, said Yuriy Boyko, in District No. 50 in the Donetsk region unknown gunmen were present at the polling stations. Also a dumping of approximately 4 thousand ballots for the ruling party and 12 thousand ballots for a candidate who had the backing of the Governor of Dnepropetrovsk region, Kolomoisky, was recorded .
Yury Boyko said: “The Opposition Bloc prepared 18 lawsuits in courts about the violations committed, the letter to the international observers working at the extraordinary parliamentary elections in Ukraine, as well as the President of Ukraine”.
“Our main demand is to stop the meddling of armed groups in the process of vote countingat polling stations“, — stressed Yuriy Boyko.
“We will defend the voices of our constituents, because we see the insistence of authorities to reduce the percentage of our votes and to reduce the number of MPs who will defend the industrial regions in the future Parliament” – summarized the leader of the opposition.
