The representatives of the self-proclaimed ‘Donetsk People’s Republic’ have showed up to the meeting of the electoral commission in the comprehensive secondary school number 64, and have demanded that they close down the polling station.
However, the members of the electoral commission did not obey, saying: – “Nobody was interfering with your referendum, now do not interfere with our elections”.
The representatives showed a printed certification provided by the ‘Donetsk People’s Republic’ – said one of the employees of the electoral commission.
Three women and one man have promised a second visit. The members of the commission decided not to appeal to the police, but contacted the district commission to tell what has happened.
