KIEV, October 31 (Itar-Tass) — Ukraine’s prosecution has opened five criminal cases on violations during the parliamentary elections, including those on bribing the electorate, press service of the authority said on Wednesday, adding that the cases were opened in Crimea, in Chernovtsy and Lugansk regions.
“On three cases the process materials are with the courts already,” the press service said.
Ukraine’s Prosecutor General’s Office considered 94 claims on violations, including those on bribing voters. In five cases only, the information was confirmed. Presently, the prosecutors finalise 18 more applications and claims. The remaining claims have not been confirmed. Out of 16 applications to the Central Elections Commission, twelve cases of bribing were not confirmed, and probes into four cases continue.
Non-governmental organisations, viewing the elections, informed about many occasions of bribing electors in various regions of the country.
