Ukrainian MPs have supported a statement by the Verkhovna Rada on Ukraine's non-recognizing the legitimacy of  elections to Russia's State Duma of the seventh convocation, their results and legal consequences, and thus, the composition, authority, acts and decisions of the State Duma.

A total of 264 MPs voted in favor of a relevant decision, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

According to the Verkhovna Rada's statement, taking into account the unlawful conduct of the elections to the State Duma in temporarily occupied Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, the elections to the State Duma of the seventh convocation are the violation of the Constitution and laws of Ukraine, basic principles and norms of the international law, the UN Charter, the Helsinki Final Act, the Budapest memorandum of 1994, the UN General Assembly resolution on Ukraine's territorial integrity №68/262.

The Ukrainian parliament calls on the Security Council and the UN General Assembly, the parliaments of foreign states, parliamentary assemblies and international organizations not to recognize the legitimacy of the elections to the State Duma of the seventh convocation, their results and legal consequences, and accordingly, the composition, authority, acts and decisions of the State Duma of the seventh convocation.
