"The court ruled to recount votes in certain polling stations. The district territorial election commissions refused to do this. The city territorial election commission disbanded them due to this. Yurii Myloboh lodged a complaint against the district territorial election commissions to the city one, and the petition should have been considered today. In addition, the city territorial election commission should have approved the new composition of district territorial election commissions in six districts of the city before 10 p.m. Dec. 2, 2015.
"The Verkhovna Rada deputies from the Opposition bloc Kolesnikov, Pavlov, and Halchenko together with their aides disguised as journalists were impeding holding of meeting of the city territorial election commission in every possible way. They were grabbing hands of territorial election commission members, scattering papers and stamping on them. Then a bomb threat was received and all the lights in the building were immediately turned off.
"Valiant police officers led by newly-appointed Kryvyy Rih Police Chief Valerii Liutyi were obstructing the activity of real journalists denying their access to the premises of the territorial election commission. At the same time, the police granted access to all unauthorized individuals connected to the Opposition bloc without any questions. In addition, the police did nothing to stop aggressive behavior of the Opposition bloc representatives and their actions to obstruct work of the city territorial election commission," the statement reads.
"It's also worth noting that reports on bomb threat in the city council became Police Chief Valerii Liutyi's favorite schtick after his appointment to the office. Such incidents never happened during tenure of previous Chief Hrechukha. All these actions aimed at preventing the appointment of members of the district territorial election commissions before 12 a.m.
"The Commission had troubles considering an appeal reporting the central election commission on the obstructions to the work of the city territorial election commission and requesting instructions on further actions in such a situation," journalists reported from Kryvyi Rih.
