In Ukraine, 92,000 citizens changed the electoral address to vote at the local elections as Interfax-Ukraine reported citing Head of the Committee of voters of Ukraine Oleksiy Koshel.

“In our view, it is a small figure, unfortunately. Totally, in Ukraine, from 5.5 up to 6 million voters who need to change the electoral address. It is the internally displaced people, labor migrants. Totally, about a million people who do not have the registration at all,” Koshel said.
