KIEV, September 18. /TASS/. More than 350 Russian nationals could ultimately cast their votes at Russia’s parliamentary elections on Sunday at Russian diplomatic missions in Ukraine, a spokesman for the Russian embassy in Kiev told TASS.
"According to preliminary data, a total of 155 people cast their votes in Kiev, 38 - in Lvov, 120 - in Odessa, and 56 - in Kharkov," the spokesman said.
On September 10, Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko ordered to notify Russia that it is impossible to organize elections to the State Duma on Ukraine’s territory. Later, Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maryana Betsa said that the vote was "impossible even on the premises of Russia’s diplomatic and consular missions." Kiev said the condition for holding the vote in Ukraine was Moscow’s refusal to carry out polls in Crimea and Sevastopol.
Following Ukraine’s decision, Peskov said Russia is not planning to discuss electoral processes on its territory with any other country. "In this case, in general the Russian side is not ready to perceive any demands (on holding the elections)," Peskov said.
There are four diplomatic missions of Russia in Ukraine: the embassy in Kiev and the consulates general in Odessa, Kharkov and Lvov. According to Russia’s Central Election Commission, there are some 80,000 Russian voters in Ukraine.
