Election Observers Beaten?

From Ovozrevatel:

Observers shot at in Zaporizhzhya

At polling station №83 of constituency № 215 in Zaporizhzhya an hour ago, observers found a violation of the law, which centered on dozens of applications to vote at home written in the same handwriting. As soon as the observers began to draw a judicial act about the violation, the members of the election commission began to expel them from the polling station by beating them.

The observers, with a video-tape of the violations, tried to leave the constituency. At that time they were shot at. As a result, the driver was wounded near the heart, and was hospitalized.

I hope this early report is an exaggeration of what happened, and I pray the driver and all involved will sustain only minor injuries.
