Ukraine should not recognize the RF elections, in particular, carried out on the territory of the annexed Crimea, the Mejlis Deputy Chairman Ilmi Umerov said on air of 112 TV channel.
“We do not specially monitor the elections. In the morning at 10:00, I visited several polling stations and did not observe any activity there. We do not monitor them since the very fact of holding elections in the occupied territory - the unrecognized territory, the territory, which is considered to be the other state - is a crime. Ukraine should be the first state not recognizing those elections not only in Crimea, but also in Russia, as they are held on a mixed system, there are majority districts and lists, so-called proportional elections,” said Umerov.
He also stressed that the occupation authorities of Crimea did not take any additional measures to ensure security of these illegal elections.
Just a reminder: September 18, Russian citizens elect deputies to the State Duma. Considering Crimea its own territory and notwithstanding the international law, Russia illegally opened polling stations in the occupied part of Ukraine.
Most countries have refused to send observers to the elections in Crimea. OSCE and the Venice Commission are not going to monitor the results of 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 its results, while maintaining a policy of non-recognition of the annexation of Crimean peninsula.
