MOSCOW, December 4 (Itar-Tass) —— Some 53,000 Russian citizens participated in the early voting at the elections to the State Duma, a member of the Central Elections Commission Yelena Dubrovina said at the international information centre Elections-2011 on Sunday.
“The early voting was mainly held in Islamic countries, where Sunday is not the day off and in the countries with the vast territory,” Dubrovina elaborated.
About 1.8 million Russian citizens live abroad now that is 130,000 more than in 2007, she said. “They live in 146 countries,” Dubrovina noted. Most Russian citizens – about 500,000 people live in Germany, about 157,000 Russian citizens in Israel, many Russian citizens in Abkhazia, Moldova, Estonia, Ukraine and the United States.
376 polling stations were set up outside Russia, Dubrovina said. “By the morning we expect the results from all foreign polling stations, in any case, from the countries, where the largest number of our compatriots live,” she underlined.
