Member of the Federation Council Alexey Pushkov mocked the desire of the Ukrainian authorities to complain about the election of the Russian president in the Crimea. He writes about this today in microblogging.
The senator reacted to Kiev’s intention to raise the issue of the illegality of such a vote on the territory of the peninsula. However, an international venue such as the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe was chosen as the venue for the speech. The politician noted with irony that this is far from the best choice in order to somehow influence the situation.
«But nothing depends on the PACE here. With the same success, Kiev can apply to the International Basketball Association,» Pushkov writes.
Let’s remind that the Ukrainian delegation plans to raise at the April session of PACE the issue of illegitimacy of the presidential elections in Russia in the Crimea.
It should be noted that the election of the leader of the Russian Federation will be held on 18 March — the fourth anniversary of the accession of the Crimea to Russia.
