MP of Ukraine, ex-head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Jemilev said that he owns reliable information about the actual number of participants of the Crimean referendum on March 16.

According to him, in fact, only 34,2% of Crimeans took part in the referendum.  Jemilev assured that Mejlis owns data, which was sent to Russian Federal Security Service, “where they needed the exact picture, not the propagandistic one, which they publicized”.

To recall, Crimean authorities said that voter turnout was 83,1%.  Out of this, 96,77% voted for accession to the Russian Federation.
