The closure of polling places in Russia makes the Ukrainian elections illegitimate

Disproof

The decision approved by the Ukrainian Central Election Commission is not meant to restrict the constitutional rights of Ukrainian citizens.

According to Ukrainian foreign minister Pavlo Klimkin, the polling stations in Russia will be closed for security reasons. Five foreign polling stations from Russia will be transferred to the embassies of Ukraine in Georgia, Kazakhstan and Finland to "ensure security and safety of Ukrainian citizens".

"We believe that holding free and fair elections on the territory of the aggressor state is impossible and devoid of political and legal sense, while for those who decide to take part, it is simply dangerous," declared Klimkin.
