Election totals in Kalmyk settlement of Primanych cancelled after stuffing video

The Election Committee of the Iki-Burul District of Kalmykia has cancelled the election outcomes results at the polling station, where Aisa Khulaeva, a student, filmed ballot-stuffing. The exact whereabouts of Khulaeva is still unknown, but there are reasons to believe that she communicates with people on her own choice, the republic's branch of the "Spravedlivaya Rossiya" (Fair Russia) Party has stated.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that the Kalmyk branch of the above party announced ballot-stuffing in the dwelling settlement of Primanych. A student Aisa Khulaeva, who recorded the video, was detained and ceased to answer the calls, the party reported.

On September 12, the Territorial Election Commission (TEC) of the Iki-Burul District annulled the election totals at polling station No. 81 in Primanych, Natalia Fedorchenko, the secretary of the Central Election Commission (CEC) of Kalmykia, told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent.

Natalia Manzhikova, the head of the Kalmyk branch of the "Spravedlivaya Rossiya", told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent that the commission members, captured by Khulaeva's video, gave confessions.

"I don't have any news about Aisa. Investigators themselves asked me about her whereabouts. The only thing that soothes us is the mood of her relatives. At the first meeting they were very worried; but today [on September 12], I have the feeling that Aisa is OK, but neither she nor her relatives want to communicate with anyone," Ms Manzhikova has explained.
