1 944

In New Zealand’s Auckland, a civil action with a call not to vote in the election of the President of the Russian Federation was held near the voting premises of Russian citizens. Such information was reported by the  ambassador of the Russian Federation in New Zealand, Valery Tereshchenko, during a video call session with the CEC of the Russian Federation .

At 8 o’clock in the morning local time in three largest cities of the country – polling stations opened in Wellington, Christchurch and Auckland.

As Tereshchenko specified, the protest with an appeal not to vote was arranged by separate citizens, but nobody paid any special attention to them. Not all Russian speakers are necessarily from Russia either.
