The Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs Sergey Yarovoy at a briefing in the Chernigov Regional Police Department on July 25 in detail told about discovery of duplicates of the seals of precinct election commissions of the 205th election district.

According to Sergey Yarovoy, today a police office in the Chernigov region received operative information that in the commuter minibus Kiev-Chernigov, which comes to a stop near the Central Market of Chernigov, a package will be shipped with the seals of electoral commissions and some documents.

To check this information a team from the criminal investigation division in civilian clothes was sent to the bus stop. Policemen had to track the moment of package delivery and to identify the recipient and the expected future path of the package.

Now the investigation continues.  In particular, investigators interrogate the bus driver in order to establish who, when and under what circumstances gave him a package for delivery to Chernigov and how he was instructed.

"If somebody knows something about the destination of this illegal cargo and about persons, who were to receive the package, be sure to contact me personally" - stressed Sergey Yarovoy.

To remind: by-election to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on the 205th  election district in Chernigov will take place on July 26, 2015.
