The real turnout in the elections of the President of the Russian Federation to the annexed Crimea reached 42%, said the head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people, MP of Ukraine from the bloc of Petro Poroshenko Refat Chubarov, citing data of the Federal security service of Russia during the live video on his page in Facebook.

He did not specify where he received this information.

“The elections in Crimea were representatives of the presidential administration of Russia who were there to monitor the presidential election. The so-called white Protocol with real information about the results of the voting were kept turnout at 42%, of which 8% are invalid and spoiled ballots” – quoted Chubarov available document.

The head of the Majlis stressed that “only 34% – those who are ideologically focused on the election.”

“At the same time representatives of local authorities, in particular Aksenov (Chairman of the “Council of Ministers” of Crimea Sergey Aksenov. – “GORDON”), tried to influence Moscow emissaries, including through bribery, for correction of documents in favor of increasing the turnout of at least 10-15%, but they refused. This has caused concern Crimean authorities, as the failure of Kremlin’s plans to turn the election results in support of the referendum in 2014 could lead to organizational insights regarding local leaders, who were unable to use the available administrative resources” – read Chubarov.
