Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin stated that 20,000 Ukrainians less voted abroad during these Ukrainian presidential elections than in 2014. The Minister of Foreign Affairs posted this on Facebook.  

“All discuss the results of elections. Everybody who has to something or who has nothing to say. However, I’m concerned about the fact that almost 73,000 people voted abroad in 2014 and only 53,000 people participated in the first round of the presidential elections this year. What a pity”, - Kimkin wrote.

Pavlo Klimkin thanked everybody for coming to the voting and pointed out that the civic duty should be equally important for everybody.
