G7 members should not recognize the upcoming Russian presidential election in the occupied Crimea. Ukraine's leader Petro Poroshenko said that during the meeting with G7 ambassadors in Kyiv. 

'It would be critically important for us to get the statement about condemnation and misrecognition of Russian presidential election in Crimea', he said. 

Poroshenko thanked the EU member countries for their firm stance in this regard.

As is known, the Russian presidential election will be held on March 18, 2018. The Russian Central Election Committee registered eight candidates, including the incumbent leader Vladimir Putin, chairman of the Liberal Democratic Party Vladimir Zhirinovsky, head of Yabloko ('Apple') Party Grigoriy Yavlinski and famous blogger Kseniya Sobchak.
