USA refused to recognize elections in Crimea

The United States condemns and does not recognize the elections in the Russian Republic of Crimea and in Sevastopol. The corresponding statement was published on its Twitter page by the American embassy in Kiev.

“Russia again violated the sovereignty of Ukraine on the territory that it seized by force and is trying to annex it. The sanctions will not be lifted until Russia returns control of Crimea to Ukraine and leaves Donbass, ”the publication says.

The elections that took place on September 13 were called “the so-called elections”. The entry has the hashtag “Crimea is Ukraine”.

Earlier, the European Union recalled the refusal to recognize the voting results: the bloc's officials called the elections illegal and spoke for the “territorial integrity” of the Ukrainian state.

On September 14, it became known that the acting governor of Sevastopol, Mikhail Razvozhaev, won the elections for the head of the city, gaining more than 85 percent of the vote. A day earlier, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry expressed a “strong protest” in connection with the elections in Crimea and Sevastopol.

At the same time, it became known that State Duma deputy Natalya Poklonskaya sent information to the UN about the water supply to Crimea: the Ukrainian government blocked the access of water to the peninsula, demanding its return to the country. Due to the drought in 2020, local residents are facing water shortages.

Crimea became part of the Russian Federation in March 2014 after a referendum on the peninsula. The accession is not recognized by the EU and NATO countries, Ukraine declares the “Russian occupation” of this territory.
