Poroshenko Urges G7 And EU To Recognize As Illegitimate Of Russian Parliamentary Elections In Crimea

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has called on countries of G7 and member states of the European Union not to recognize legitimacy of the Russian parliamentary elections in Crimea.

The presidential press service announced this in a statement following Poroshenko's meeting with Ambassadors of G7 and member states of the European Union on September 12, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"The Head of the State urged not to recognize legitimacy of the parliamentary elections of Russia, Moscow tries to hold in the occupied Crimea and the city of Sevastopol - the Ukrainian territory under the temporary occupation," the statement reads.

President Poroshenko highlighted the importance of continuation of the policy not recognizing the illegal annexation of Crimea, where the situation with the observation of human rights is deteriorating, especially in the light of restoration of "punitive medicine" of the Soviet times.

Poroshenko noted that major efforts should be taken to persuade Russia execute the Minsk agreements.

"The pressure of sanctions against Moscow proves effective and the pressure must continue until full restoration of the sovereignty and the territorial integrity of our State," the press service quoted Poroshenko as saying.

The sides also discussed the questions of release of hostages and political prisoners in Russia and occupied territories of Ukraine as soon as possible.

As Ukrainian News Agency reported, on September 8, 2016 the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine applied to foreign parliaments and international organizations with a request to refrain from observing the elections to the Russian State Duma on the territory of the annexed Crimea on September 18.
