MOSCOW, March 4 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Minister of Telecommunications and Mass Communications Igor Shchegolev and Chairman of the Central Elections Commission (CEC) Vladimir Churov were watching right at Saturday midnight Moscow time, how the first polling stations opened at Russian presidential elections in Kamchatka and Chukotka. They were watching this process at the video wall, which is placed at the CEC atrium. The video wall is made up of 120 screens, which transmit the video recording from the web cameras.
The video monitoring during the voting and the vote count became a revolutionary breakthrough, experts believe. This great project was implemented urgently by the Telecommunications Ministry and Rostelecom. Some 91,000 from a total of about 95,000 polling stations are equipped with the web cameras.
