“We have been informed about the activities of some foreign funds aimed at disrupting elections,” commission head Vladimir Churov told journalists, adding that law enforcers would publish more details soon.

“We have preliminary information that fake ballots are being printed in near abroad countries not with the aim of stuffing ballot boxes but for other provocative purposes,” the source added.
Fake ballots had already been found in St. Petersburg, where governor and municipal elections were due on that date, the source said. Provocations would be particularly sensitive in St. Petersburg, Pskov and certain border regions but were unlikely to cause problems in Moscow or the Moscow region.
