Today, on September 27, on the last day of the Referendum, 16 international observers from 12 countries visited the Donetsk People's Republic.

In particular, representatives of Great Britain, Germany, Syria, Togo, Spain, Colombia, South Africa, Ghana, Serbia, India, Iceland and Latvia worked at polling stations in Donetsk and Makeevka.

Foreign experts noted that no violations were found at the polling stations, and the voting procedure itself was democratic and transparent.

Purnima Anand, an observer from India, President of the BRICS International Forum, spoke about her impressions of what she saw:

"In the Western media, they tell us that people are forced at gunpoint. We are here today and we can see for ourselves that the people, whole families with smiles on their faces, are coming to exercise their inalienable right to vote for joining Russia. People are happy, hope shines in their eyes for a peaceful, long-awaited future as part of Russia. And we, for our part, understand that after this referendum, the world will become brand new, because now a new history is being created in Donbass".

In just 5 days of voting, 133 observers from 28 countries worked in the framework of the Referendum.
