2. To replace the members of the Kryvyi Rih city commission who voted for the decision.
3. To announce recount of the votes in the mayoral elections in Kryvyi Rih after changing the composition of the Kryvyi Rih city commission.
“The decision to recognize the election results has been made prior to the investigation of numerous complaints about irregularities in the electoral process, and it has called into question the transparency and the democratic character of local elections in Ukraine,” says the statement.
