As of 18:00 September 18, 42.37% of electorate voted on the illegal elections to State Duma in the annexed Crimea. In Sevastopol, the voter turnout at the poles was 40.47% according to the official website of the Central Election Commission of the Russian Federation.
September 18, Russian citizens voted for MPs. 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.
Ukraine strongly condemned the conduct of Russian elections on its territory and called on other countries not to recognize the results, maintaining a policy of non-recognition of annexation.
The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said that "any results of these elections are null and void", and that the parliamentary elections in Russia held in condition of international law violation puts into question the legitimacy of the elected State Duma and is the reason to expand sanctions against Russia.
A video evidence of voting falsification in Russia has already appeared on the Internet.
