Mustafa Dzhemilev: “Only 34,2% Crimeans took part in the pseudo-referendum on March 16”

On March 24, Ukrainian MP Mustafa Dzemilev on air of Ukrainske Radio said:

“Only 34,2% of Crimeans actually took part in the pseudo-referendum on March 16. The Crimean Medjlis got hold of the data that was directed to the Russian FSB, where the real picture needs to be known, and not the propaganda one that they are disseminating. And on election day at 12 o’clock they were spreading information about an alleged 60% turnout. In addition, there was no binding to geographic location; you could have voted in one municipality and then go vote to another.”

The official statement of Crimea:

Voter participation in Crimea was 81.36 % according to the head of the election commission of the Verkhovna Rada of Crimea, Mykhailo Malyshev.

“By 8PM, 1,250,426 persons cast their ballots. This excludes the results from Sevastopol.
Counting the ballots from Sevastopol, 1,724,563 persons voted,” he said.
Let’s do the math: 1,724,563 – 1,250,426 = 474,137, the number of persons who voted in Sevastopol.

Let’s look at the statistical website of the city of Sevastopol:

At the end of last year, Sevastopol’s population was 385,462, counting children, that are not eligible to vote.

474,137 – 385,462 = 88,675
– the increase in the population during the referendum.

Pseudo-referendum in Crimea: a list of violations observed

A referendum is occurring in Crimea today. Its legitimacy is recognized only by Russia, Syria, Venezuela, and North Korea. Activists have documented a number of violations during the course of the referendum.

One of the issues is the fact that ballots were distributed to the voters who are not registered in the voting lists, including nationals of other countries. A Russian citizen with a residence permit in Simferopol was able to get a ballot for the referendum. Continue reading

INSIDER: Results of the referendum. Crimeans are afraid to express their discontent

e7d13be-----.jpg.pagespeed.ce.6PoAWJCS_d.jpgSevastopol is a heated topic of discussion once again. Crimea entered world trends in social networks by numbers of citations and intensity of discussion. The peninsula has probably never been such a focus of attention since the Crimean War in 1853-1856.

The international community held its breath anticipating the results of the referendum on March 16. However, its main results will not be votes but low turnout.

The self-proclaimed government has counted 75.9% voters, while independent observers report only about 50% of Crimeans who voted. And this is after the necessary percent was ‘cooked’ in many different ways. Continue reading
