Over 60 per cent of voters will turn up at the forthcoming parliamentary elections in Russia, head of the independent research center Public Opinion Fund Alexander Oslon told a press conference in Moscow on Thursday.
"There is a myth" that the elections are of no interest, he said. "However, there has not been any proof from participants of the election process that it is really so," Oslon pointed out.
