Lithuania not recognizes results of elections to State Duma in annexed Crimea

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania expresses its strong concern over violations, which were committed during the elections to the State Duma, and calls on the Central Election Commission of the Russian Federation to immediately look into these violations, as well as to take action against them.

This has been stated in a statement made by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Lithuania.

"Once again we firmly note that we consider the Russian Federation’s elections to the State Duma in Crimea, which was illegally annexed and occupied at the beginning of 2014, illegal and we shall not recognize these results," reads a statement.

"We strongly condemn this and other violations of Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty by the Russian Federation. This is the reason why the European Union and its international partners have imposed restrictive measures against Russia and individual persons," it says.
