The head of the Khabarovsk Territorial Organization of the All-Russian Public Organization "All-Russian Society of Challenged People" informed the High Commissioner that on a single voting day, people with disabilities were granted equal access to the polling stations.

The High Commissioner instructed the Government of Russia and the State Duma of the Russian Federation to expedite the adoption of the law.
