Many European countries have already decided not to recognize the results of elections to the Russian parliament
Canada won't recognize elections to Russia's State Duma, which took place in occupied Crimea. This statement was made by the Canadian Foreign Minister, Stephane Dion, on his Twitter page.
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 all declared the same statements.
Ukrainian diplomats were the first to claim their intent to recognize the Russian elections illegitimate. Calling the elections "a gross breach of international law".
Moscow doesn't react to any accusations and continues a triumphant reign. The ruling party "Yedinaya Rossiya" will hold that position later on with a majority in the parliament. The rest remains unchanged: the Communist party gained the 2nd place and the Liberal Democratic Party - the 3rd.
