Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR) has submitted the draft law to the Russian State Duma, which offers not to recognize the results of the elections of the president of Ukraine on March 31 as the State Duma reported.
“On March 31, the elections of the president of Ukraine will take place. Today, the LDPR submitted the draft law on the non-recognition of the results of these elections to the State Duma; we were the first to make this offer,” Vladimir Zhirinovsky, the LDPR Head, stated.
Zhirinovsky expects “the bribery of voters, 15 million of fake ballots and presence of the law enforcers at the polling stations, which will participate in the falsifications” during the upcoming elections.
According to Zhirinovsky, President Petro Poroshenko will be re-elected for the second term in such a way.
As we reported, the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights, the principal institution of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (ODIHR OSCE) included 24 Russians into the list of short-term observers for the presidential elections in Ukraine.
The Verkhovna Rada registered the bill No.9524 which calls for ruling out the participation of the observers from the aggressor state in the presidential and parliamentary elections in Ukraine.
ODIHR offered to include two citizens of Russia to the list of the mission on the observation of the Ukrainian presidential elections on 31 March 2019, despite the conditions declared by Ukraine.
As we reported earlier, The Central Election Commission (CEC) of Ukraine has created 199 district election commissions for the upcoming presidential election on March 31.
The election campaign has officially started on December 31, 2018. Registration of the candidates was closed on February 4, 2019, and on February 9, the final list of presidential candidates is expected to appear. The candidates would be able to withdraw their candidacy until March 7, 2019.
