Rada To Ask EU, International Organizations Not To Recognize Russian State Duma Elections On September 21

The parliament intends to adopt on September 21 a resolution calling on the European Union and international organizations not to recognize the elections to the State Duma of Russia.

The press service of the parliament announced this in a statement, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"Parliament Speaker Andriy Parubiy, said during a briefing on Monday that the parliament planned to adopt on Wednesday, September 21, an appeal to the European Union and international organizations not to recognize the elections in the State Duma of Russia, which included voting in the occupied Ukrainian territory," the press service said.

According to Parubiy, the parliament is already drafting the relevant statement.

In addition, according to the parliament speaker, parliamentary deputies are currently considering the text of the statements and their positions on the level at which the election should not be recognized: the deputies that were elected in the annexed Crimea or the entire State Duma.

"The part of the elections that was held based on the proportional system casts doubt on the results of the entire elections," he said.

Parubiy also expressed the belief that sanctions should be imposed on the deputies that contested and were elected to the Russian parliament from the Crimea.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, Ukraine has condemned the organization of elections to the State Duma of Russia on the territory of the annexed Crimea and called on its international partners not to recognize the voting results in the Crimea and extend their sanctions to the participants in the elections.
