“The closer the opening of polling stations in the presidential elections, the more hysteria we are seeing in public space,” – said Fedotov.
“We in the Council are outraged by this position, which is rude and frankly contradicts the rules of international law”, – added Fedotov, speaking about the statement of interior Minister of Ukraine Arsen Avakov on not allowing Russians to vote.
He stressed that to prevent the elections, which means in fact to declare a blockade of the diplomatic missions.
He expressed the hope that on the morning of March 18, reason will prevail and the Russians will be able to vote.
