In Odesa, journalists of Channel 7 were not allowed to polling station in military hospital, due to lack of accreditation from Ministry of Defense

27.10.2014, 14:27

On October 26, in Odesa, a Channel 7 filming crew was not allowed to the polling station No.511336 of the electoral district No.135 in Prymorskyi district, which is located in the premises of a military hospital. The personnel said that they needed special accreditation from the Ministry of Defense to enter there. To the argument that journalists have a right to be present, they promised to call police. The journalists agreed to call the police to see who is breaking the law. The reason the filming crew went to this polling station was information that the electoral committee at this station received 400 extra voting papers, for no apparent reason, as they only have 265 voters, of whom 238 changed their location for voting.
