The elections at this district were accompanied by scandals on the vote counting. According to Opora observers, the elections were recognized void at five polling stations. The recounting of votes is disputed at the court. Moreover, the difference in votes for Oleksandr Shevchenko was detected at six polling stations. Some ballots disappeared at two polling stations.
