The federal ombudswoman voted at a polling station on the territory of the Plekhanov Russian University of Economics.

"From my point of view, today the amendments to the Constitution are raising issues of social guarantees, moral cores to the higher level, and giving opportunity to progressive development," Tatiana Moskalkova said.

According to the High Commissioner, amendments related to indexation of pensions and increasing guarantees of labor rights of citizens are important.

"As the High Commissioner for Human Rights I receive a lot of social issues complaints related to employment, low earnings, life conditions, I believe that amendments about indexation of pensions and certain salary guarantee are really important," Tatiana Moskalkova clarified.

"I received about 400 requests, usually related to clarifying specific information. People could not get information about where their polling station is located. They did not understand how to register for voting in Moscow via the electronic network. Our workers were ready to tell them how to find the portal of public services, how to fill in the form," the High Commissioner said.

Recall that the nationwide vote on approving changes to the Constitution of the Russian Federation began on June 25.

In the beginning of June, the working group on monitoring the observance of citizens 'rights during the preparation and conduct of voting was organized at the High Commissioner’s Office. Its activity includes the control of ensuring citizens' rights, explanation and clarification, work with appeals, prompt response to reports of possible violations of citizens' electoral rights.
