Turkey recognized the elections in Crimea illegal


Turkey has refused to recognize the results of elections of deputies of the state Duma of Russia on the territory of Crimea. As reported by Anadolu news Agency, said the press Secretary of the foreign Ministry of Turkey Tanju Bilgic.

“From the point of view of Turkey, the elections to the state Duma of the Russian Federation in Crimea have no legal force,” he said.

Bilgic explained that Turkey considers the territory of annexed Crimea and supported the territorial integrity of Ukraine, therefore, sees no legitimacy in the Russian elections on the Peninsula.
