In particular, Oleh Shcherbak, who arrived to the location with a mobile group of observers from the Civil Network “Opora”.

According to the law, such bulletins are supposed to be replaced, and the journalists wanted to check if they indeed were. The defective bulletins, however, were not replaced. The meeting of the committee was conducted behind the closed doors, without journalists and observers, giving as excuse the absence of quorum and article 94.
