MOSCOW, September 21 (Itar-Tass) —— As many as 350 polling stations will be opened in 146 world countries to provide Russian citizens with an opportunity to take part in the parliamentary elections on December 4, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Wednesday.
“We organize as many polling stations as possible at Russian diplomatic missions abroad each time for elections, either parliamentary or presidential,” he told the Pomni Rossiyu (Remember Russia) website. “If Russian diplomatic missions are not enough we lease additional premises and involve all Russian staffers abroad.”
The Russian Foreign Ministry, he noted, “seeks to create maximally comfortable conditions for Russians residing abroad who want to take part in elections.”
According to the Russian foreign minister, who also chairs a governmental commission on the affairs of compatriots abroad, the voter turnout abroad usually is 40-45 percent of all those who are registered with Russian consular services.
He also said he hoped this year the turnout will be still bigger and called on all eligible Russians and compatriots to take part in the forthcoming elections.
