Secretary General of the Council of Europe Thorbjorn Jagland has welcomed Ukraine’s parliamentary election, which took place in Ukraine on Oct. 26, 2014.
According to Jagland, the parliamentary elections held in Ukraine “show desire of Ukrainian people for peace, democracy and unity of Ukraine”.
Secretary General of the Council of Europe also noted that Ukraine’s President Poroshenko and Prime Minister Yatsenyuk were to carry out democratic reforms in the country.
Some 36 million Ukrainians were registered to take part in Sunday's elections. The voting took place neither in Crimea, which joined Russia in March, nor in parts of eastern Ukraine which have seen months of unrest between Ukrainian forces and armed pro-Russia separatists.
Nevertheless, pro-European parties of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk and Lviv Mayor Andriy Sadovy have won seats in Ukrainian Parliament.
