MOSCOW, March 4 (Itar-Tass) —— Over one million Internet users showed their interest to watch the process of presidential elections and the vote count in the Internet, Russian Minister of Telecommunications and Mass Communications Igor Shchegolev said overnight to Sunday. “Over one million people made more than 4.5 million bookmarks,” he said.
“There is no polling station in Russia that has no registered users,” he added. The minister recalled that “in general, the system is designed for more than 25 million visits.”
The ministry does not see anything bad that some Internet users can use the web cameras to stage various flash mobs or just to make faces in the web cameras. “We take it as a joke,” the minister told Itar-Tass, noting that he takes similar acts “as one of the ways to popularize” the unique project.
