In Dnipropetrovsk, during elections at District Electoral Committee No.28, fake journalists were exposed

28.10.2014, 20:26

On October 26, in Dnipropetrovsk, in the electoral district No.28, thugs pretending to be journalists were exposed. About 10 unidentified individuals of athletic build appeared at the district electoral committee building, but were stopped by law enforcers, and had to leave. Soon, four of them returned, together with Vitaliy Bakuta, a proxy of MP candidate Yevheniy Morozenko (former Party of Regions member). They introduced themselves as journalists, but could not tell what articles they published and what editorial assignments they received. Their journalist IDs were suspicios and inconsistent – for example, at one of them the name of media outlet did not match the seal. They remained at the building until it was clear that Morozenko loses by large margin, creating a strained atmosphere, yet left after that without taking any further actions.
