 Opposition Fears Radical Scenario of Ceasing and Destroying Ballots by Gerega’s People

Pro-government candidate Halyna Gerega is resorting to blackmail, banditism and psychological pressure on opposition.

Opposition politician Zoryan Shkiryak states: "At the moment Andriy Illyenko is the winner of elections which is confirmed by the results published on the CEC website. Gerega could not rise above the situation and save the reputation of a politician who knows how to accept defeat. The administration building is now surrounded by criminals and thugs. According to our data, several hundred people were brought from Odesa and at night there should be about 500 of them. Some of them entered the courtyard of the administration office and the main entrance blocking them, and some - dispersed to neighboring streets.

Gerega's representatives are psychological pressuring the members of the commission demanmding a total vote re-count in the district. However, in the presence of TV cameras and reporters the head of the district commission said that not a single complaint has been recorded in any of the precincts. That is, any attempt to re-count the votes in the precincts of the district is illegal. We do not exclude the extremely radical scenario by Gerega because her people are very aggressive and behave provocatively. They went into the session room using fake IDs, they curse and use obscene language and trying to provoke a fight. People were brough by Epicenter buses (Gerega is the owner of it). They used tear gas against one of the journalists. Attempts to force capture the ballots from the archive and destroy them are real - there are prerequisites for that.

Approximately the same scenario is in 223 district which is surrounded by a similar group applying the same methods. It seems that the actions of these groups are agreed and coordinated from a single center. The opposition claims that determination, and victory.
