The case was initiated under two parts of article 142 of the criminal code — “Falsification of voting results” and “Falsification of election documents”. We will remind, on election day, observers shocked the video appeared on the Network from the polling station №1958 in Rostov region.

However, most likely we are talking about the Belgorod region, where the head of the regional election Committee Nikolay Pletnev told about the fraud identified at the polling station No. 1198. According to him, 10 minutes before the end of voting members of the precinct election Commission catapulted into the stationary ballot boxes 23 ballot for the Federal electoral district and 28 ballots for single-mandate constituency. The resulting void is recognized all 1057 ballots were in the ballot boxes at the site. According to Nikolay Pletnev, tomarovskiy election Commission said stuffing original. The head of the election Committee said that the PEC members did not cast a vote themselves and made it orderly at the end of the day, when the voter was not in the room. It seems that it became known that the election results for this area cancelled.

There are also questions of the vote in some areas in Dagestan. There were also recorded on video stuffing in boxes. However, they weren’t stationary cameras and mobile phones of observers. In all of these cases are still proceeding. The information is sent to the interior Ministry.
