Ukraine Claims To Have Detained "Terrorists" With 100,000 Pre-Marked Referendum Ballots

Tyler Durden's picture


While the following YouTube clip is - in the eyes of the West - irrefutable proof of potential vote-rigging ahead of tomorrow's referendum, we find it somewhat intriguing that a group of heavily-armed "rebels", carrying boxes with 100,000 pre-marked 'positive' referendum ballots


...would be detained by Ukraine's anti-terrorist operations without firing one shot...


...still men laying down with bags on their head proves it... right?

Ukraine's government and news media are even less believable than the Western ones.

Someone did a calculation, and determined that it was not possible to fit that many ballots into the car model that they were traveling in, let alone three guys besides the ballots in that car.

Mother never let me play with platic bags because if you put one over your head, you might 'suffercate.'  And yet these clowns expect us to believe this is real, as they have bagged these men with what would, in fact, be lethal confinement within 5 minutes?

Yea, right.

Just another propaganda stunt by Kiev.   The local authorities in Donetsk didn't feel they needed to print ballots with a "NO" option.  This is obviously fake.

Could 100,000 ballots fit into that car with 3 guys and still be driveable?


A 500-sheet ream of 20-pound bond paper weighs 5 pounds.


Assumption: 2 ballots per sheet of paper

100,000 ballots = 50,000 sheets =

100 reams = 2,000 lbs


Dimensions of 1 ream = 8.5 x 11 x 2

100 reams  = 8.5 x 11 x 200 =

18,700 cu in = 10.8 cu ft

14 down votes because why?  The truth is "anti-Semitic"?   The oligarchs own just about all of the media in Ukraine, and most of them are Jewish - a group comprising 0.7% of their population.  Just because some Ukrainian neo-fascist said it, does not mean it is not true.

If those tv stations and news media were owned mainly by any other such minority, or by foreigners, that would be just fine to mention, right?

Do you ever ponder as to whether you've been brainwashed, not to avoid "hate," but to avoid appreciating the extent of this massive, massive concentration of power?

You nailed it.  My neighbor and I were just joking about it yesterday afternoon: there's NO WAY the psychos would let this referendum proceed without at least some token attempt to disrupt / discredit it SOMEhow.  Sure enough, here we go. 

If those were real bad guys, their faces would be shown and they'd probably be shot.  If they were plants, the faces would stay covered and they'll disappear back into Kiev.  The eyes have it. 

Local authorities can probably distinguish legitimate ballots somehow.  These are probably crude copies, but even so, 100,000 probably wouldn't dent the outcome.

C'mon guys, come up with something original.  This is too... American.  (This is essentially what happened in an old episode of Battlestar Galactica.)

One has to wonder at how people have come to be the people they are.  That said, McCain must have some interesting nightmares and Hillary Clinton has been of considerable service to this country.  It takes an experienced politician to run a country.  As much as people want to demonize the left or the right, politics make people do some rather unpleasant things.

Even the elites in the shadow government are afraid of what he could do. I assure you if they ever did allow him to be President, he would have been closely watched and would not have access to the nuclear trigger or codes.  I think the eleites who run the show deliberately allow McCain to run around like a crazy madman just to put a scare in our enemies  -kind of like the crazy psycho Netanyahu.

Not buying Belrev's report of calculation.  Do the math yourself.  The ballots look to be half of an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper.  A 500 sheet ream of paper is 2 inches tall which equates to 1,000 ballots.  100 reams would fit into the trunk of that car, with maybe some overflow in the unoccupied half of the back set.  It would be heavy, but it would fit.

However, I would not discount the possibility that the CIA/Nazi regime in Kyiv staged the arrest to discredit the "referendum".

Sat, 05/10/2014 - 14:52 | 4746463 GooseShtepping Moron
GooseShtepping Moron's picture

Let's assume your estimate of the size of the ballots is correct. In that case, the volume of 500 ballots equals [8.5 * (11/2) * 2] = 93.5 cubic inches.

To get the volume of 100,000 ballots, multiply the last result by 200. [200 * 93.5] = 18,700 cubic inches.

There are 12 * 12 * 12 or 1728 cubic inches in one cubic foot. The total volume of 100,000 ballots is therefore 18,700/1728 or approx. 10.8 cubic feet.

This amounts to the volume of a square-based cylinder almost exactly one meter on each side and one foot high. Shouldn't be a problem fitting that into a car.

My question is, Who counted them all? (sarc)

Let's just say - the net weight of 100 thousand sheets of A4 paper - about 500 kilograms. Even if we assume that the sheets used a smaller area , it is still unlikely the total weight of less than 400 kilograms.

Even more interesting is the question of volume -
Here are details of freight terminals
One pallet of A4 = 240 packs of 48 or boxes; weight of 600 kg; volume of 0.92 m2 (1 box = 5 reams of 500 sheets) Weight: 1 box = 12.5 kg; 1 pack = 2.5 kg

Assuming the sheets are smaller and they do not need to 240 packs of about 200 ( 500 sheets ), then still leave where - is the overall volume of 0.8 cubic meters or about 800 liters.
Tech specs of Daewoo Lanos
Cargo Volume, L 322 or 250 Trunk volume ( with folded back seats . ) , 958 or 886 l

That is physically fit bulletins can only become full and their trunk and rear seats .
But on the photo Explorer shows that detained at least 3 people.
One probably fled with guns near the Lanos , which is still at such an overload (500 kg of paper and two forehead front) certainly constantly clings potholes exhaust pipe ) .

In general , it seems fake . Something stupid , it was necessary to at least the number of ballots carried halve .

I agree with you that it's fake. In fact, I'm positive that it's fake. It's a bunch of BS Ukrainian junior varsity propaganda. I just don't think calculations like this are the right way to prove it. We were not there; we don't have all the details; we could easily be overlooking something that would make the Ukrainian story "believable" from a strictly physico-mathematical standpoint.

I'm content with resting my case on the fact that the pro-Russian side is guaranteed overwhelming electoral victory anyway, and hence would have no need for ballot-stuffing.

This could very likely be CIA paid performers who dress up like terrorist and carry boxes of pre filled ballots. They need to show faces of these men in garbage bags and check their bank accounts for any unknown sources of income, also check their backgrounds.

"For some, 911 was an abject failure of government. For those that know better, 911 was a monumental success of government.”

This statement is the exact opposite of the truth. There is plenty of blame to be laid at the government's doorstep without applying a paranoid and oppressivist hermeneutic to the events of 9/11. Yes, the 19 hijackers really did do exactly what the "official story" claims them to have done: they hijacked the planes and flew them into the buildings. And they did so without the US government's knowledge or consent. And the World Trade Center towers (including Building 7) collapsed from the impact of the planes and/or secondary fires and seismic disturbances, not from explosive charges set off in a controlled demolition.

The government's culpability only becomes a factor when we begin to consider that 9/11 came about as a result of multiple intelligence operations souring, and the intelligence community's inability to either control the situation or fess up to it. The CIA opened Pandora's box in Afghanistan, an we paid for it.

"there was on video about the referendums showing ballots..enough to easy imitate..."

1. show sample ballots in video.

2. change ballot format to prevent fraud.

3. release final ballot design only on election day.


1. ballots to be marked only with stamp provided at polling station.  

2. Each station has own stamp - stamps kept secret until election day.


1. each station assigned a random number on election day

2. only ballots marked with that number are valid.


Finally, ballots to be counted only by certified independent observers.


Seriously, how difficult is this?

And Sandy Hoax and Boston Boom are proving to be instrumental in my quest to wake, or at least stir, people awake.

People especially respond to C(IA)NN having pre-queued up old video from a neighboring school's "live-shooter exercise" during a "live" broadcast from Sandy Hook--"If it was 'live' and unplanned, how did they have footage from a neighboring school queued up, or, at least, why did they use footage from the other school and call it Sandy Hook?!" Oh why indeed and the many webs...?!

How hard is it to mark up a bunch of ballots before you snap a picture of them? 

Nobody is going to respect that election anyway, dismissing it an unduly influenced, etc., etc., blah, blah, blah. (Said the Secretary of State on cue.)

Often when I try to figure out the why of US actions, one of the options which frequently presents itself is:  D) Just plain stupidity.  Seldom, however, does that occur in my thinking about Russia.

Over the last weeks, German, Austrian and Swiss internet editions of newspapers NZZ, Spiegel, FAZ, and many others are very much anti-Russian and "pro-interim-government". Today for example, there are lots of articles how the planned referendum is illegal, how it is a "farce", how Turtschinov "warns" and will never negotiate with "terrorists" or how Merkel and Hollande are threatening Russia, etc.

At the same time, however, a majority of forum commentators are quite fiercly opposed to what the articles state.

It could be that people are starting to wake up in the german speaking part of Western Europe....
