As of 5 p.m. the turn out on the polling stations in Greece made 35% of the registered number, as Oleg Ivaniv, the Head of the Election Commission in Ukraine’s Embassy to Greece, said on air of 112 Ukraine.

“There are two polling stations in Greece, one in Athens, another one – in Thessaloniki. The number of the registered voters as of 8 am made 2680. People who made their choice made 35% of the registered number of the voters. In my opinion, people “got confused between two pines”, therefore we got a low number,” he said.
