Parliamentary elections in Ukraine were not representative, free nor fair

Summary of Disinformation

Russia should not recognize the parliamentary elections in Ukraine, because there were no Russian observers, no PACE observers. There were clear violations in the electoral campaign. The elections cannot be called representative, free nor fair.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative, seeking to undermine legitimacy of elections in Ukraine. See previous case: Ukrainian elections have to be recognized as illegitimate.

According to the preliminary statement of the OSCE, Ukraine’s early parliamentary elections were efficiently run and respected fundamental freedoms.

The European Parliament election observation delegation to Ukraine said in a statement that notwithstanding the fact that the elections were taking place a few months earlier than planned, one can undoubtedly say that they were competitive, well administered and managed in an efficient way.
