Considering Crimea the Russian territory, the RF had illegally opened polling stations in the occupied part of Ukraine, contrary to international law.
Most countries have refused to send observers to the elections in Crimea. OSCE and the Venice Commission did not monitor the results of the voting in the occupied peninsula as well.
