Ukraine CEC blocks access to voter database in Crimea
KYIV. March 7 (Interfax) - The Ukrainian Central Election Commission (CEC) has ordered that access to the voter database in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, which is expected to hold a referendum on its status on March 16, be blocked.
The CEC press service has reported that the commission unanimously adopted this decision on Thursday, "bearing in mind the current situation in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, in light of an attempt to prepare for holding an unlawful local referendum and with the aim of protecting the voter database of the State Register from any illegal use of personal data from this register."
The CEC resolution orders a suspension of access to the State Register voter database for the register's branches in Crimea and the city of Sevastopol.
