BELGRADE, April 26. /TASS/. Organization of election to the State Duma among the Russians living abroad is a task of paramount importance to the Central Election Commission at the moment, Vassily Likhachov, a CEC member who led a delegation of Russian observers at Sunday's parliamentary election in Serbia, told a group of Russian reporters in Belgrade.
"Statistics says some 1.08 million people are registered at Russian consulates abroad," he said. "That's a big figure and it may grow further closer to the election day" since tourists and visitors on business trips will be added.
In addition, there are the contingents of Russian military abroad.
"We have military bases in Tajikistan, South Ossetia, Abkhazia, and Armenia," Likhachov said. "And certainly the biggest organizational headache is linked to our grouping in Syria. It's vital to make sure that the people performing their international duties there don't feel disadvantaged.".
