On the basis of information being received from all regions, villages, cities and townships of our country, we can say for sure that presidential elections were held in all regions of Ukraine. This was announced by Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, Acting President of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov.
“Elections were open and transparent, voting was free, without artificial restrictions and administrative pressure,” he said expressing hope that the Central Election Commission “will promptly and objectively provide the count of votes”.
“I want to express gratitude to all citizens of Ukraine for being aware of the importance of the national expression of will,” he noted adding that voters were extremely active “almost all over Ukraine”.
“Also, I would like to express special gratefulness to members of district and precinct commissions of Donetsk and Luhansk regions who have honorably fulfilled their civil duty. We have ruined the plans of our enemies with these elections which, I hope, will be recognized by all civilized countries. This is our mutual victory,” the Acting President concluded.
