On August 25, 2021, a regular meeting of the CEC of Russia took place.
Ella Pamfilova, Chairperson of the Central Election Commission of Russia, presented the English version of the Interactive Directory “Political Parties in the Russian Federation”: “This is an informational project that has no analogue anywhere in the world. The interest to our elections is enormous, there are many different kinds of judgments and messages that are not based on real information, due to lack of information or for some other reason - but not obkective. Now those who want to study our elections honestly and objectively have help, as well as an additional opportunity to assess the real political weight of parties by their participation in elections, and not just by loud statements. I would like to draw your attention to the fact that only in the last week our site had about 75 thousand views from other countries."
About changes in the Procedure for using video surveillance equipment

Deputy Chairman of the CEC of Russia Nikolai Bulaev noted that the CEC plans to provide all subjects of observation at least 8.8 thousand accounts: "If we consider that from each account one can simultaneously observe four polling stations, this means the possibility of observing almost 35 thousand polling stations at once."
