Two independent observers – Andrei Tsianiuta and Andrei Zhaleznichenka – were forced today to leave Homel-based polling station No. 3 located in constituency No. 33.

The observers were expelled after Andrei Zhaleznichenka approached the table occupied by the election commission head to check the voters’ turnout. Sviatlana Kukharava, chair of the commission, said both observers should leave the premises.
