The author of video of ballot-stuffing at elections in Kalmykia asks to stop searching her

The Investigating Committee is checking the today's video message of Aisa Khulaeva, who had disappeared after she recorded a ballot-stuffing one of the polling stations in Kalmykia.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that Aisa Khulaeva, a KSU student, who made a video of ballot-stuffing in at the polling station in the settlement of Primanych village, had ceased to answer the calls. On September 11, the Kalmyk branch of the "Spravedlivaya Rossiya" (Fair Russia) Party reported that Khulaeva was last seen at the investigator's office. The Kalmyk State University (KSU), where Aisa is a student, applied to the investigating bodies in the context of her disappearance.

Aisa Khulaeva asked not to disturb her relatives. "I want to say that at the moment I'm alive and healthy. Please, don't disturb my relatives. I want to thank all those who support me, I'm grateful for that; and thank you for your attention," Aisa said in a video message, posted in her page on the Instagram.

She has stressed that she was recording the video message today at 11:56 a.m., and she showed the time on her smartphone.

Evgenia Perfilieva, the head of the press service of the Investigating Committee for Kalmykia, told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent that she had sent the video to employees of the Committee so that they could study it. "The location of Aisa Khulaeva has not yet been established, but we will establish it; we must make sure that she is in safety," said one of the investigators.
