Turkey on Monday rejected the parliamentary elections held in Crimea, which Russia illegally annexed from Ukraine in 2014. reports that in a statement, Tanju Bilgic, spokesman for the Turkish Foreign Ministry, said: “Turkey maintains its support for Ukraine's territorial integrity and does not recognize the unlawful annexation of Crimea."

In this context, Bilgic said, the State Duma elections held in Crimea on Sept. 17-19 have “no legal validity for Turkey.”

The Ukrainian administration also objects to Russia's elections in Crimea on the grounds that it violates international law.

Borrell’s note also states that “the EU does not and will not recognize the illegal annexation of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol by the Russian Federation and therefore does not recognize the so-called elections held in the occupied Crimean peninsula. The decision of the Russian Federation to involve residents of the non-government controlled territories of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions in Ukraine in the regional and local elections of the State Duma contravenes the spirit and objectives of the Minsk agreements. The EU remains steadfast in its support for the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine.”
