Sources in the General Prosecutor Office pointed out that regional heads will be elected in eight Russian regions; elections to regional parliaments will take place in 16 regions and there will be elections to local self-government bodies in most regions.
Prosecutors are instructed to organize the collection and analysis of information, investigate complaints without delay, establish interaction with election commissions with the assistance of working groups set up within prosecutor offices.
