Ukrainian military forces stopped and seized a vehicle carrying three armed men transporting guns, ammunition, and an estimated 100,000 ballots for a May 11 referendum already marked "yes" for the eastern city of Donetsk to break away and form an independent state, Kyiv Post reports. The men which Ukrainian media have described as "armed terrorists" were found with ballots in the trunk of their car on the outskirts of the city, a police source told the Ukraine Observer.
Many cities in eastern Ukraine have been under siege for about a month, including Donetsk, where the city's main government building and a number of schools have been seized by pro-Russian separatists believed to be backed by Moscow.
The new reports of fraudulent ballots brings to mind a similar incident in Crimea, the region recently annexed to Russia following a March 16 vote. A senior White House official told Reuters there was "concrete evidence" some of those ballots arrived to Crimean cities pre-marked.
The Russian government claimed the Crimea referendum resulted in a 96.7% vote in favor of annexation, although a Russian government agency later wrote on its website that turnout was only 30%, with only half voting in favor of annexation.
While the May 11 referendum seems to be moving forward as planned, even Russian President Vladimir Putin issued a surprising call to postpone the vote "in order to create the necessary conditions" for a dialogue between local representatives and authorities in Kiev, The Daily Beast reported.

If this were a Rat controlled city, the Rat judge would rule that the ballots were still valid.
How very Chicago of them...
Putin’s butt kissers will just claim this is a “fascist lie” or something.
Where was David Axelrod?
They learned that technique from Chicago or Philly or San fransicko
Where was Al Franken?
Who is running that election over there? Barry’s DemocRATS?
Hire these Ukranian military forces for our next election.
I have just watched a news item where young Ukrainians are signing up in droves. They all believe war is coming. I have to admire their courage and commitment. I pray they are not needed and that both sides want an agreement. I am unsure whether Putin really does or if he now just wants to show the EU what happens if you play around in his “sphere of influence”.
Their best bet is for any voting at all, to use an ink pad and right thumb print to certify each ballot.
Like algore’s “hanging chads” created by the Democrat election officials when they didn’t push the stylus all the way though to the bottom of the stacks of Florida ballots.
One darn good reason that democracy/popular vote fails.
Every time it is tried.
Anyone remember the Democrat election officer in Miami stopped by a cop during the 2000 election? Had the voting machine and boxes of blank ballot cards in the trunk.
Preview of the 2016 election here.
“For the convenience of the voter, of course”.
So they are Democrats.
Miami————Janet Reno was on the Attorney General vetting list for the Clintons because she helped make sure elections went the “right” way in Dade County.
They’ve got ACORN and SEIU over there.
The R’s will never win again so long as they let the D’s keep rigging the elections with so many fake votes
It might be true, but I won’t be surprised it it is marked by a government supporters to smear federalists for propaganda support.
Remember their Kerry-backed Jew-registration trick.
“How very Chicago of them...”
actually, it happened in Massachusetts a couple of years ago, but in a slightly different way. allow me to explain.
when ted kennedy died, and simultaneously people wanted to stop obamcare, the enthusiasm to replace him with scott brown was palpable. the democrats tried everything. the Friday before the election, the boston globe ran a front page poll they pulled out of the air showing coakley over brown by 16 points.
by Tuesday people were lining up, and they didn’t look like the typical democratic voters. the bosses knew they were in trouble. the best they could do is stir up trouble and hope maybe some people stayed away. so they turned to their allies in the boston media. so here’s what happened.
the 6pm newscasts ran a story about five ballots being pre marked for brown in Cambridge. now five votes in the communist bastion of Cambridge wasn’t going to change anything, not to mention did they think if someone got a pre marked they would just say, oh I guess i’ll leave it as is, but it just might turn people off from voting for brown if people sensed fraud. so, even though it would make no sense for someone in the brown camp to pre mark ballots, and only five at that, the news stations ran with it. talking about how it was already being investigated, blah,
blah, blah. hoping it might work.
It’s rays’ sis to imply voter fraud
South Osettia and Abhkasia!!! Same as always with Putin and his invasions.
