Ukraine calls on the Council of Europe and its 47 member states not to recognize the legitimacy of the elections to the Russian State Duma, which will be held in occupied Crimea on September 18. 

This is stated in a letter by Ukraine’s permanent representative to the Council of Europe Dmytro Kuleba, which was sent to the ambassadors of Council of Europe member states.

In particular, the diplomat said if elections are held in Crimea, then the Council of Europe member states should refrain from recognizing any Russian delegation at parliamentary assemblies, which will include deputies “elected” in Crimea.

“These elections violate fundamental norms and principles of the international law, relevant resolutions by the United Nations and the Council of Europe, as well as the current legislation of Ukraine,” the diplomat noted.
