Russia will not recognize Ukraine’s presidential election

Saturday, March, 29, 2014, 10:44

Russia currently regards the presidential election scheduled for May in Ukraine as illegitimate. Russia’s permanent representative to the OSCE in Vienna, Andrei Kelin, stated this on Friday during a videoconference between Moscow and Vienna, Interfax-Ukraine reports.

“Concerning the question of whether it (the election) is legitimate or illegitimate, at this point in time we think that this election is illegitimate because it does not fit the way it was set out in the agreement (from February 21),” said Kelin.

In his words, to make the elected president legitimate, the leader of the state should be supported by all Ukrainians. And for this sake, the legislation must be changed.

“The constitutional reform is urgently needed. It cannot wait,” said the Russian diplomat.
