DONETSK, May 08, 19:54 /ITAR-TASS/. The central election commission of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic has dismissed reports saying unidentified people destroyed on Thursday about one million ballot papers for a referendum on independence,
“More than three million ballot papers were printed in accordance with the number of voters. Almost all ballot papers are at the moment at territorial election commissions,” its chairman Roman Lyagin told a news conference, adding that “information about damage to ballot papers is not true”. “There are no problems with preparations at the moment, all proceeds as scheduled,” he added.
Lyagin said about 15,000 people were working at territorial election commissions. “We expect a rather high voter turnout, more than 70%,” he added.
