MOSCOW, October 16. /TASS/. Russian legislators will not go to Ukraine’s forthcoming parliamentary elections due on October 26 in the capacity of OSCE observers, the chairman of the State Duma’s committee for international affairs, Aleksey Pushkov, told TASS.
“Russian legislators will not go to Ukraine with an OSCE mission to monitor elections, because they fear they will not enjoy proper security bearing mind the conditions in which the election campaign in Ukraine is proceeding and the extremely high level of anti-Russian sentiment,” Pushkov said.
Earlier on Friday, the Central Election Commission handed over 467,300 ballot papers to representatives of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry. The biggest number of polling stations — six — will be opened in Russia: at the Ukrainian embassy in Moscow, at consulates general in St. Petersburg, Rostov-on-Don, Nizhny Novgorod, Yekaterinburg, and Novosibirsk.
