Mustafa Dzhemilev: “Only 34,2% Crimeans took part in the pseudo-referendum on March 16”

Mustafa Dzhemilev: “Only 34,2% Crimeans took part in the pseudo-referendum on March 16”

On March 24, Ukrainian MP Mustafa Dzemilev on air of Ukrainske Radio said:

“Only 34,2% of Crimeans actually took part in the pseudo-referendum on March 16. The Crimean Medjlis got hold of the data that was directed to the Russian FSB, where the real picture needs to be known, and not the propaganda one that they are disseminating. And on election day at 12 o’clock they were spreading information about an alleged 60% turnout. In addition, there was no binding to geographic location; you could have voted in one municipality and then go vote to another.”
