Poland

Janusz Niedźwiecki is a member of the Polish pro-Russian party "Change" (Zmiana) and the President of the European Centre for Democracy and Human Rights (ECDHR), a non-profit Brussels-based organisation. He took part, as a coordinator, in the workings of the “electoral monitoring mission” Political Initiative. After “observing” the Ukrainian regional elections, he plunged into pro-Kremlin and anti-Ukrainian activities. The Russian disinformation resource Sputnik News would present him as a “Polish independent commentator”. In 2017 Niedźwiecki took part in the congress of the pro-Kremlin National-Bolshevik movement “Essence of Time”, founded and headed by Sergey Kurginyan.

I have observed elections in many countries of the world, including Europe. Elections in Azerbaijan are well organised legally and technically. I have not recorded any violations. The representative of the opposition party also admitted the absence of any violations. This is an indicator of transparency.

Я наблюдал за выборами во многих странах, включая страны Европы. Выборы в Азербайджане организованы хорошо как с законодательной, так и с технической точек зрения. Никаких нарушений я не зафиксировал. Представитель оппозиционной партии также признал отсутствие каких-либо нарушений. Это является показателем прозрачности.
