Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin urges the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine to consider the amendments to the legislation, which provide the digital voting as 112 Ukraine reported.

“In 2014, we had over 70,000 (Ukrainians who voted abroad, - 112 international), now we have 56,000. The voters’ turnout was far less significant. A lot of Ukrainians who live abroad appeal to me. They say it is very important to solve this issue. I always told that I stand for digital voting as we can involve the Ukrainian abroad only in such a way. It is possible to do; I urge the Verkhovna Rada to consider the proper amendments to the law,” Klimkin said.
