YABLOKO made it into the legislative assembly of Kasimov despite fraud

Statement by YABLOKO Chairman

July 18, 2012

The YABLOKO party made it into the Duma (legislative assembly) of Kasimov, Ryazan region. According to official data, the party overcame the threashold into the Duma. However, our real vote, despite of the stuffing of ballots in favour of the ruling party, is much more.

These elections were a failure for Russian falsificators. And this is largely due to the work of independent volunteers the observers who worked in Kasimov. YABLOKO expresses its gratitude to all of them and admiration of their life stance.

These elections were unrivaled as of the number of detected and revealed cases of fraud. Packs of bulletins prepared for ballot box stuffing, were detected and registered at different polling stations. Two criminals were caught ballot stuffing and taken to police. The nightmare of rigging culminated at the Polling Station No 17, when electoral commission members headed by Vladimir Grachyov, Deputy Chair of the Ryazan Regional Electoral Commission, were faking ballot papers in front of observers and candidates.

Never before had the evidence of crime been so conclusive. YABLOKO will seek to get all those engaged in rigging the elections to justice.

Sergei Mitrokhin,
Chair of the YABLOKO party
