В Западной Европе есть определённое недоверие к электронному голосованию и идут постоянные дебаты на эту тему, но в Россия не боятся рисков. Именно в этом я вижу прогрессивную черту России в данном направлении.

Введение технологических новинок — важнейшая часть голосования, поскольку это позволяет соединить в себе технологические инновации и поддержать демократию. Россия может стать прекрасной моделью для стран Европы.

What we are witnessing now is a major historical event. As we know, Donbass has long been part of Russia, and the referendum, what is happening now, is the highest form of democracy. It is a referendum, I believe, that is the best solution in this conflict,” the Lugansk Information Center quotes Thomann as saying. [Translated from Russian]

Corresponding elections

On the single voting day on 8 September 2019, Russia elected governors in 19 federal subjects and members of legislative bodies in 13 federal subjects. In July 2019, the Moscow City Election Commission (MCEC) refused to register the overwhelming majority of independent opposition candidates for the elections to the Moscow City Duma. This provoked mass protests in Moscow and undermined the legitimacy of the elections.
From 23 to 27 September 2022, the Russian forces organised a sham election process - pseudo-referendum as a pretext for the formal annexation of the regions of occupied Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhzhia, and Kherson by Russia. The annexation of the four regions was announced on 30 September 2022.
