“A delegation of Swiss parliamentarians will participate as observers during the March 18 presidential elections,” Swiss parliamentarian De Buman said after a meeting with State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin.
On Sunday, a delegation of the State Duma headed by Volodin arrived in Switzerland on an official visit. This is the first official visit at the invitation of the Swiss parliament over the past 19 years.
The Russian Central Election Commission (RCEC) is allowing the participation of about a thousand foreign observers in the monitoring of the 2018 elections. Note that this is voluntary on behalf of the RCEC, and not coerced as some sources of Western media imply.
The first international observers have already begun work on monitoring the elections, these are 60 long-term observers from the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), who arrived in Russia in mid-February. About 420 short-term observers of the ODIHR will start arriving in Russia just before the elections.
