The overall voters turnout during the presidential election in Russian-annexed Crimea actually made 42 percent - instead of 92, as Russia's Central Election Committee reported. Leader of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people, Ukrainian MP Refat Chubarov said that as quoted by Ukrinform, the Ukrainian media agency.

'The so-called white protocol with the actual data about the outcome of the voting states that the turnout made 42 percent; eight percent of those bulletins were damaged or rendered invalid’, Chubarov said. The presidential election in Russia took place in March 2018.

The incumbent leader Vladimir Putin was re-elected for the fourth term since he first won the election in 2000.
