Residents of the Crimea receive blank invitations for the referendum

More

The invitations specify absolutely no data at all.

The residents of the Crimea started to receive blank invitations for the referendum, reported the Internet-edition of ‘Island’ on March 13. It is reported that invitations are not filled in with the names of the voter or polling stations nor are territorial district numbers specified. Strangely those invited to vote are not even provided with the address of the polling station where they are to vote on the referendum. The precinct election commission contact details are also not specified.

As reported earlier, the referendum in the Crimea will be held on 16th of March. The self-proclaimed Crimean authorities are confident that residents of the peninsula will vote for accession to the Russian Federation.

Earlier, The Central Election Commission of Ukraine closed access to the state voter registry for Crimea.

Dear readers! We need your help. COVID-19 has hit independent media outlets hard, but even more so in Ukraine, where most outlets are controlled by oligarchs. To make matters worse, several English-language media sources from Ukraine have closed recently. And even worse, this comes at a time of troubling government tendencies and amid a pro-Russian resurgence in Ukraine.  Help keep us online and reporting on the most important of Ukrainian issues for you in these troubling times, bringing the voices of civic society to the forefront of the information war. Our articles are free for everyone to use but we depend on our readers to keep going.  We are a small independent journalist team on a shoestring budget and have no political or state affiliation.
