Moscow, Mar 15 (Prensa Latina) International observers are monitoring elections in Crimea, where the first day of the three-day presidential elections started on Friday, as in the rest of Russia.

A group of international observers is working in the polling stations of the peninsula, the Crimean Ministry of Internal Affairs, Information, and Communications confirmed, according to a Sputnik report this Friday.

The group includes representatives from Slovakia, Ghana, India, Indonesia, and Serbia.

Over the three days, those observers will visit dozens of polling stations in several cities of the peninsula, including Simferopol, Yalta, Alushta, Sudak, Feodosia, and Sevastopol.

Russia convened the presidential elections on March 17. Voting will be held on March 15-17. This will be the first presidential election that will last three days.
