All polling stations for Ukrainian voters in Russia are closed. 112 Ukraine TV channel's correspondent reports this on July 21, the parliamentary election day in Ukraine.

December 31, 2018, Ukraine's Foreign Ministry made an official announcement stating that all polling stations stop working in Russia, so Ukrainian voters cannot cast their ballots there. The main reason is that the Ministry can't provide and maintain security for its voters in Russia; the authority has no opportunity to provide the due electoral process or at least invite the international observers.

Over a million Ukrainians live in Russia; Ukraine's diplomatic offices worked in Moscow, Novosibirsk, Rostov-on-Don, and Yekaterinburg.

As of 2 p.m., five percent from the overall amount of Ukrainian voters cast their ballots in France. 

In Ukraine itself, the voters' turnout made almost 34 percent so far (as of 4 p.m. Sunday).
