The deputy of the St. Petersburg Legislative Assembly, Boris Vishnevsky, was attacked after he filed a complaint about irregularities during the elections. The incident took place near the administration building of the Central District at about eight o'clock in the morning on Monday.

The allegedly correspondent of the local newspaper "Fontanka" called the deputy and asked for an interview on the street. When the deputy left the administration building to talk to the "journalist", he was attacked by unknown persons, informs edition . In total, four were waiting for the deputy. They snatched copies of the complaints he had already filed from him and said that he would no longer enter the administration building.

"Go home, you won't get into the building today", - one of the attackers said.

Vishnevsky himself notes that he was surprised by the inaction of the police, who were nearby at the time of the attack. "When I turned to the policemen again, they told me that they have a different function here, and they recommended calling 112", - Vishnevsky added.

After the attack, the deputy wrote a statement to the police.

Vishnevsky on Monday filed complaints with two territorial election commissions for the annulment of voting results at polling stations where video surveillance was not conducted, and also did not monitor the safety of ballots. The results of the counting of votes at these polling stations were very different from those of the neighboring ones.

Recall that this year on the eve of the elections, two candidates changed their names and surnames, taking for themselves the same as those of the deputy Boris Vishnevsky. As a result, Vishnevsky Boris Gennadievich (previously under the passport Alexey Shmelyov), Vishnevsky Boris Ivanovich (Viktor Bykov) and Vishnevsky Boris Lazarevich ("real" candidate from the Yabloko party). The head of the Central Election Commission, Ella Pamfilova, called the incident "mockery of voters". She expressed the hope that in the upcoming elections the voters will figure out whom to vote for, and in the future it will be necessary to change the legislation so that such precedents will no longer be repeated.
