According to the Russia's Central Election Commission, voting results in two of the single-candidate constituencies were falsified.

MOSCOW, December 4 (Sputnik) – Some of the results of parliamentary elections in Ukraine were falsified, Russia's Central Election Commission has announced.

"The difference [in voting counts in some of the regions] has been recognized by Ukraine's Central Election Commission and a recount was ordered, which was cancelled by the Kiev Administrative Court and then by the Supreme Administrative Court of Ukraine," Chairman of the Central Election Commission, Vladimir Churov, said.

Early parliamentary elections were held in Ukraine on October 26. Ukrainians cast their votes for 423 members of the country's parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, of which 225 were to be delegated into the parliament by party lists, while another 198 were to be elected in single-candidate constituencies.

According to Churov, voting results in two of the single-candidate constituencies were falsified.

After the vote representatives of five Ukrainian parties signed a draft agreement on the creation of a pro-European coalition in the Verkhovna Rada. All the parties that made it to the parliament, except for the Opposition Bloc, were invited to join the coalition.

Last week, Ukraine's parliamentary coalition nominated incumbent Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk to occupy the same position in Ukraine's newly-formed government.
