Russian Election Commission Head Pamfilova Will Resign If Elections Unfair

Ella Pamfilova

The head of Russia’s Central Election Committee, Ella Pamfilova, has announced in an interview with the Ekho Moskvy radio station that she will resign in the event of  unfair elections.

She expressed hope that she will be able to remove negativity and distrust toward elections.

“I simply aim to perform professionally, as I am obliged to do, but time will tell. Will this distrust be removed, raise people’s interest and trust in elections?” she asked.

She stressed that people shouldn't feel that the elections are “just some kind of sham,” and that a lot depends on their outcome.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
