The number of Russian citizens, who came to polling stations abroad exceeded 190 000 people, TASS reports.

 In total, the number of polling stations abroad reached almost 350.

The MFA's spokesperson Maria Zakharova recalled that this year the election process had an important difference from the previous ones. We must not forget about the pandemic, she said. 

According to her, there were no security threats anywhere. In the Netherlands and the United States, protesters gathered outside election buildings, but these pickets did not affect polling stations. 

The diplomat noted that Washington was in a hurry to support Russophobic statements that were heard from Brussels. The American authorities said the elections were allegedly held in a non-transparent manner. The United States does not recognize the objectivity of the election results and deny the Russian electoral system, Zakharavoa summed up.
