MOSCOW, September 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia is ready to ensure security at the voting stations that are to open in Moscow and five consulates general across the country for the Ukrainian parliamentary election, a Russian diplomatic source said on Monday.
“The Russian side has received an official request of the Ukrainian side in connection with holding early elections to the Verkhovna Rada on October 26. Russia has agreed to open ballot stations on the basis of an embassy in Moscow and five consulates general on the Russian territory,” the source said.
“Russia will ensure the necessary level of security of such voting stations,” the source stressed.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko dissolved Ukraine's parliament in late August in a move to clean the parliament from the allies of his predecessor Viktor Yanukovych and scheduled snap parliamentary elections for October 26.
