MOSCOW, March 5 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Central Election Commission head Vladimir Churov on Monday denied the reports on alleged mass removal of observers and nonvoting members of election commissions.
According to him, on the day of the vote, March 4, only 66 election commission members were removed, and corresponding reports were written.
