"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 polling stations located closer to the centers of populated areas are still open and will close at 10 p.m. local time, he said.
