The European Parliament has called the "elections" in the Russian Federation a farce

Members of the European Union and the international community should not recognize the results of the "elections" in Russia, where dictator Vladimir Putin claimed victory.

This was reported by the European Parliament's page.

The reason for this is the fact that the Russians held these "elections" in the occupied territories of Ukraine. Moreover, within Russia itself, the "election" process was neither free nor fair.

"This farcical performance by the Russian authorities had the single goal of creating the appearance of electoral legitimacy for Vladimir Putin, his policy of relentless domestic repression and, most of all, for the war of aggression against Ukraine," said the MPs.

The European Parliament also expressed regret that Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban decided to depart from the EU's position and congratulated Vladimir Putin on his fictitious "re-election." Deputies called on EU members to restrict relations with Putin.

"Parliament calls upon member states to limit relations with Putin to matters necessary for regional peace as well as humanitarian and human rights purposes, for example prisoner exchanges, the return of children deported from Ukraine or calling for the release of political prisoners," said the MPs.
