Canada becomes another country to not recognize the Russian elections in annexed Crimea

Canada won`t recognize elections to Russia`s State Duma, which took place in occupied Crimea, according to a statement by Canada`s Foreign Minister Stephane Dion, Ukraine Today reports.

Previously, a range of European countries, such as Sweden, Romania, France and the UK, alongside the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe and the EU all have declared the same statements, according to Ukraine Today.

Ukrainian diplomats were the first to claim their intent to recognize the Russian elections illegitimate. They called the elections ”a gross breach of international law”.

Moscow doesn`t react to any accusations. The ruling party ”Yedinaya Rossiya” will hold that position later on with a majority in the parliament.
