For this decision voted 264 deputies with the required minimum of 226 votes.

As a result of today’s decision, Ukraine will not recognize anything from the “results and legal consequences” of the activities of the Council, and accordingly, the composition, powers, acts and decisions”.

Like the decision was due to the fact that the elections to the Duma were held, in particular, in the Crimea and Sevastopol, which Ukraine, like Russia, considers their territories.

Read about the result of the Duma elections by Khodorkovsky.

In the Parliament also stated that it will appeal to the security Council and the UN General Assembly and the parliaments of other States not to recognize the credentials of the Russian Duma.

We will remind that following the results of voting on 8 September, “United Russia” has received in it the constitutional majority, the Parliament passed another three parties – KPRF, LDPR and CP, thus substantially reducing its number of seats compared with the previous convocation.
