A teacher of Svetlahorsk secondary school stuffed false ballots at polling station No. 2, says local observer Leanid Bolduyeu. The observer says he has already submitted a complaint with local prosecuting authorities.

“I saw a woman from the commission come to the ballot box and pretended to have voted. The same woman soon came up to the box and cast at least six ballots. I learned it was Maryna Sharubina, a teacher at the same school,” says Leanid Bolduyeu.

“The stuffing was witnessed by other observers. I am sure they will confirm the fact at the prosecutor’s office,” says the observer.
