The Deputy of the Crimean state Council Vladislav Gangar commented on the protest of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of Ukraine in connection with the elections in Crimea. It is reported by RT.
Gangara said that the reaction from the Ukrainian authorities in the Crimea did not expect. “That is where I think the Ukraine regarding this, does not concern us”, — said the Deputy.
“Once again we see an empty shaking of the air by the Ukrainian state and its successive institutions, who in this respect resemble just a flurry of activity,” said Ganjar. He added that the elected bodies will work in accordance with Russian legislation, regardless of the position of the Ukrainian side.
Earlier, Ukraine’s foreign Ministry protested in connection with the holding of local elections in Crimea. Kiev called on international partners to prevent the contacts at the national and regional levels with representatives of the Russian administration in Crimea and to “strengthen efforts” to return of the Peninsula under Ukrainian jurisdiction.
8 September 2019 in the Crimea held elections to the State Council of the second convocation. Elections are organized under a mixed system: 50 deputies elected on party lists, 25 — single-mandate districts.
In 2014 in Russia according to the results of the referendum became the Crimean Peninsula. Ukraine and several other countries believe that Russia is an occupier, but Moscow denies the accusations. In the same year, member States of the European Union and also the USA and other countries introduced against Russia restrictive measures. First they were tied up with the annexation of Crimea, and then — with the conflict in the South-East of Ukraine. In response, Moscow imposed a ban on food exports from countries that supported sanctions. The West associates the abolition of measures with the implementation of the Minsk relations of complex of measures on stabilization of the situation in the South-East of Ukraine.
