The Ukraina Printing Company has completed the production of ballot papers for voting in the second round of Ukraine's presidential election. No violations were recorded during the printing process, Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) Chief Valentyn Nalyvaichenko has said, UKRINFORM reported.

"According to the data of video supervision and physical control, over 37 million ballots were printed in a legal way," he said.

Nalyvaichenko said that all of the printed ballots, escorted by SBU and Interior Ministry security officers, would be sent to polling stations according to schedule.

As UKRINFORM reported, an incident involving Regions Party MPs and their aids occurred at the Ukraina Printing Company in the early hours of January 25. The aids came to the printing company in order to allegedly protect the building from "being seized by unknown individuals."

The headquarters of Regions Party leader Viktor Yanukovych said earlier that his rival, presidential candidate and Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko wanted to print 1.5 million extra ballot papers.

The Prosecutor General's Office opened a criminal case over the seizure of the Ukraina Printing Company.

Tymoshenko and Yanukovych, the frontrunners in Ukraine's presidential election, will face a run-off vote on February 7.
