"The polling stations located in the outskirts of populated areas closed at 8 p.m. local time. The preliminary vote count has begun. The number of those who voted 'against' does not exceed 5%, according to the initial preliminary results. I think this figure will not rise and can only decrease," Chmilenko told Interfax.
The turnout at the Luhansk regional referendum was at least 85%, Chmilenko said.
The polling stations located closer to the centers of populated areas are still open and will close at 10 p.m. local time, he said.
