MOSCOW, May 11, 13:30 /ITAR-TASS/. People are standing in long queues at polling stations at a referendum on self-determination in the south-eastern Ukrainian cities of Donetsk and Mariupol, voting proceeds calmly,” member of the Russian Public Chamber Georgy Fedorov told Itar-Tass on Sunday with the reference to reports of observers co-operating with the Public Chamber in these Donetsk regional cities.
“Polling stations opened timely. Neither provocations nor clashes were reported,” he noted.
Public Chamber observers from Moscow failed to come for a referendum in Donetsk Region, because Ukraine had blocked the border and members of the Public Chamber had to give up their trip. “We were informed that operational groups had been waiting for us at border checkpoints,” Fedorov said.
