Russia decided not to send observers for the Ukrainian elections


Representatives of Russia will refrain from observation of presidential elections in Ukraine. The MFA of Russia on the website of the department is said about it in the statement. It is said in the statement that such decision was made "for safety reasons". It is noted that the refusal of accreditation of the Russian observers is regarded as "the most rough violation of the international obligations", and the Ukrainian side thus "walked" over standards of electoral procedures. According to department, the absence of the Russian observers and deprivation of the Ukrainian citizens of an opportunity to vote in the territory of Russia "calls into question transparency and objectivity" the upcoming elections. Also urged "the western mentors of Kiev" to estimate actions of the Ukrainian side at the MFA and to return it to the international legal field.7 of February of the USA and OSCE urged Ukraine to revise the decision and to allow observers from Russia at elections. OSCE considers that such position contradicts rules of a mission and does not promote strengthening of democratic institutes in the country. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine and the president of the country Petro Poroshenko repeatedly stated that they will not let on elections of the Russian representatives. According to the Ukrainian side, representatives of "country aggressor" have no right to watch elections even as a part of international mission of OSCE. Presidential elections in Ukraine will take place on March 31, 2019. Most of Ukrainians do not approve activity of the head of state Petro Poroshenko and the cabinet. In the rating of possible candidates the president of Ukraine took only the fourth place — in his support 9.4 percent of respondents spoke. Yulia Tymoshenko (16.9 percent of votes) became the leader of the rating. "The film of day" is more than important news in Telegram channel. Subscribe!
