The bare facts are that voter turnout in Crimea was similar to turnout in Russia at large, coming to about 67 percent while ballots for Putin exceeded by far the Russian average: about 92 percent for Putin versus the national average of approximately 77 percent for Putin.

Многие считают, что это второй референдум, я думаю, что это так и есть. ... Меня впечатлил профессионализм, спокойствие, все шло тихо, спокойно, без ажиотажа, все шло, как должно быть, это большое достижение администрации и крымского народа.

The overwhelming majority of the world’s nations does not recognise Russia’s annexation of Ukraine’s Autonomous Republic of Crimea in 2014, while international institutions such as the OSCE ODIHR considered Russian elections held in Crimea as illegitimate and did not send international election observers there. In their turn, Ukrainian authorities warned that any participation in the electoral process in Crimea would be illegal.
