MOSCOW, December 31. /ITAR-TASS/. High technology has guaranteed several years of polling day security nationwide, Central Elections Commission chairman Vladimir Churov told a Russia-wide presentation to regional colleagues.

“Security issues are given top priority for obvious reasons today,” he told a video-conference session which observed a minute's silence for victims of the Volgograd terror attacks.

Presenting new elections technology, he urged “a focus on this problem”, noting that successful techniques of ensuring poll security had been developed with the Interior Ministry and other law enforcement agencies.

“Thanks to this program, no incident has been reported on the whole territory of the country for the past few years”, Churov said, stressing the need for measures “to ensure full security on voting day”.

His call for vigilance reflected on the two strikes in the south Russian city of Volgograd on Sunday and Monday. Latest reports say the railway station and trolleybus explosions killed 33 and maimed more than 70.
