During elections, at Dnipropetrovsk district, journalists of Channel 11 were forbidden to record video, twice

02.11.2014, 14:31

On October 26, at the electoral district No.24 (Dnipropetrovsk city), the filming crew of «Channel 11» had problems with filming at the elections twice. The first time was when the journalists noticed that a voter threw a blank page into the box instead of the bulletin, and asked police for comments, but police refused to comment and insisted on stopping the video recording.

The second time was when they encountered a hostile attitude at one of the polling stations, where they were not allowed to record and the head of the committee demanded that they showed their passports (although journalists had journalist IDs). They decided to leave this polling station not to provoke the conflict, and moved to the neighboring one, where they recorded video without any problems.
