The Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has described this Sunday as “a violation of international principles and laws” Moscow’s decision to extend the next Russian presidential elections in March 2024 also to the regions it occupies in Ukraine.

“Holding Russian elections in Ukrainian territories violates the constitution of Ukraine, and the norms and principles of international law, in particular the charter of the United Nations,” the statement said.

The text “calls on the international community to resolutely condemn the Russian intention to hold elections in the occupied Ukrainian territories.” He adds that this decision “questions the legitimacy of the Russian presidential elections.”

The statement cites “the autonomous republic of Crimea, the city of Sevastopol, and parts of the regions of Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporiya and Kherson,” among the Ukrainian regions under Moscow’s military control where the next Russian presidential elections would also be held. .
