Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs concerning elections held by the Russian Federation in Crimea

09.09.2019. 11:18

The Republic of Latvia strongly condemns the elections of the so-called legislative authorities of Crimea and Sevastopol conducted by the Russian Federation on 8 September 2019.

The Republic of Latvia supports the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine and has been consistent in non-recognition of the illegal and illegitimate annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol carried out by the Russian Federation.

We again underline the need for the international community to invest its maximum efforts toward safeguarding the provisions of international law and the territorial integrity and sovereignty of states.
