KIEV, October 26. /TASS/. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has arrived in Kramatorsk, eastern Ukraine, to visit polling station No 141027 that is located at the Interregional Higher Construction Vocational School, the press service of the Donetsk regional administration said on Sunday.
“The head o state will familiarise himself with the voting procedure organisation here. Poroshenko has not voted at this polling station,” says the report.
According to earlier Sunday reports, the Ukrainian president intended to personally check the voting process at the early elections to the Verkhovna Rada (parliament) of Ukraine, the president’s wife Marina Poroshenko said at a polling station.
“My husband is in Donbas now where he went for a personal check so that all the people in the east could express their will and vote: both civilians in the liberated territories and the military who are currently on the frontline,” she said.
Marina Poroshenko said the president “will 100% vote,” declining to specify where he will vote. The presidential press service said Poroshenko would vote at the country’s early parliamentary elections after 12:00 (14:00, Moscow time).
According to deputy head of the Ukrainian Central Election Commission (CEC) Andrei Magera, more than 9,000 military in Donbas have changed the voting place and will take part in the Verkhovna Rada elections.
“We have preliminary information that more than 9,000 military in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions have changed the voting place and will take part in the elections. They decided not to wait for the law adoption and themselves turned to the registration agencies,” Magera told reporters.
Poroshenko previously said that 10,000 Ukrainian troops that are staying in the zone of the military operation in Donbas have been put on the electorate register.
