Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Vallstrem today said she does not recognize the elections to the State Duma of the Russian Federation, which takes place in annexed Crimea. On this she wrote in Twitter.

"We deplore Russia's holding of Duma elections today in illegally annexed Crimea. Will not recognise those "elected" in Crimea" , - wrote Vallstrem.


Sweden is not the first country that does not agree with the legitimacy of the elections to the Russian Duma in the occupied territories. Earlier US announced its intention not to recognize results of elections in occupied Crimea. Also the State Department noted that sanctions against Russia will remain until the return of full control of Crimea to Ukraine.
