"Crimean authorities" force people to attend the elections to the Russian State Duma under the pretext of dismissals and wage cuts. This was stated on the TV channel "112 Ukraine" by the head of the Crimean Human Rights Group Olga Skrypnyk.

"We have received a few complaints about the fact that de facto "Crimean government" uses the so-called administrative resources to force people to go to these elections. For example, under the threat of dismissal or reduction of salary. Now we collect this information, and if there will be some confirmed facts, we will write about it in more detail, "- she added.

"From the point of view of international law, these elections are not legitimate, it can not be considered legitimate," - she explained.
