Tall som ble sluppet av den russiske presidentens menneskerettsråd, viser at oppslutningen om folkeavstemningen på Krim kan ha vært bare 30 % og av dem stemte halvparten for anneksjon.

Det vil si at bare 15 % av befolkningen stemte for innlemmelse i Russland, milelangt unna den offisielle versjonen.

 

According to this purported report about the March referendum to annex Crimea, the turnout was 30 percent. And of these, only half voted for the referendum – meaning only 15 percent of Crimean citizens voted for annexation.

The official Crimean election results, as reported widely in the Western press, showed a 97 percent vote in favor of annexation with a turnout of 83 percent. No international observers were allowed. The pro-Russia election pressure would have raised the already weak vote in favor of annexation, of course.

Menneskerettsrådet har også et mellomestimat som sier at 40 % stemte og av dem stemte 55 % for anneksjon. Det er likevel langt unna Moskvas offisielle tall.

 

Official Kremlin results: 97 percent of polled voters for annexation, turnout 83 percent, and 82 percent of total Crimean population voting in favor.

President’s Human Rights Council mid-point estimate: 55 percent of polled voters for annexation, turnout 40 percent, 22.5 percent of total Crimean population voting in favor.

A member of the Human Rights Council, Svetlana Gannushkina, talked about election fraud on Kanal 24 (as replayed on Ukrainian television), declaring that the Crimean vote “discredited Russia more than could be dreamed up by a foreign agent.”
