Video Observation Findings

The leader of the merry-go-round in the Kemerov oblast turned out to be…. the deputy head of the region. Video observers are continuing their challenging work – the study of footage from polling stations and the uncovering of crimes. Vyacheslav Chernov brought this scandalous case to court but they only find the people involved not the organiser.

However, the observers are not planning on giving up and will appeal the decision in court. And we will follow the story and demand a just punishment for the guilty.

Another of this week’s findings – the brazen ballot stuffing uncovered by activists in Roshal, Podmoskovye, at the first polling station they came to. This inspired them to study all the footage we’ve gathered. You can expect a detailed report about what actually happened at polling stations in Roshal soon.

Roman Udot used the example of Dagestan to show the way in which video observers analyse footage.

Next Sunday we’ll be following the local elections in Altaysky Kray and North Ossetia. You can read about all the interesting developments on our voting chronicle.
