A fake election committee works in Sosnivka village, Sumy region. It was revealed by observers and law enforcement officers. Olga Aivazovskaya, head of the board of the Opora civic network, announced this on her Facebook page.

The illegally shaped, the unauthorized committee organized voting for the rural council and the local community. It refuses to be included in the amalgamated community. The fake committee works under the same number as the real one does (No.590211). They printed the ballots themselves. Citizens just come to that polling station and vote.

Law enforcement officers have already received permission from the prosecutor's office to enter a private building for a search.

"At the fake site, music plays and people are invited to vote, they go to the self-proclaimed site instead of the real one, but in the real one there is a very low turnout because it is in the back of the village and nothing happens near it, people do not know what is really needed there go," said the head of the board of Opora network.
