All the polling stations were equipped with automatic devices, professional operators. I want to note that the voting in a referendum was held in a free and open manner.

It is very important for us to know what public events such as a referendum took place here. We see in this referendum the possibility of broad integration processes of our union state. We are full of confidence and determination that our economic cooperation will enable the development of all countries.
