MOSCOW, November 2 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian Central Election Commission intends to check the work of Euronews Television during the single election day — October 14, CEC head Vladimir Churov said on Friday, making it clear that the reason for this was the report that the television channel gave the opportunity to speak to a number of candidates to the post of mayor of Khimki, the Moscow Region, during the vote day.
"We have already asked lawyers to study the legal nature of the media, on what basis they broadcast in the RF territory, since, in our view, there are indications of violation of the RF legislation," he said.
Churov also urges to check the spending of election funds by candidates.
"Our colleague (Chairman of the Election Commission of the Moscow Region, Irek) Vildanov should together with the territorial election commission to thoroughly analyze whether the declared spending of the candidates' election funds coincide with the real one," the CEC head said, adding that it should be checked with the participation of law enforcement and tax authorities to prevent any signs of political corruption.
"I think Mr. Vildanov will pay special attention to the aspect of the election campaign," Churov noted.
The elections of mayor of Khimki were held on the single election day, October 14. The winner is acting head of the city Oleg Shakhov, whose result was almost twice as higher as the result of the second leading candidate — opposition and environmental protection activist Yevgenia Chirikova.
