Vice Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk has recently reiterated this.

The Central Election Commission of Ukraine has officially confirmed this information. CEC Resolution No. 10 of February 23, 2024, states:

The organization and holding of pseudo-elections on the territory of sovereign independent Ukraine by the authorities of the Russian Federation and their officials are illegitimate. If the votes of ‘voters’ in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine are taken into account, the results will be null and void. This will give grounds for non-recognition of the president elected in this way.

The CEC called on foreign states and international organizations:

– Do not participate in observing the process of occupation pseudo-elections in the TOT.

– Do not recognize the powers of the illegitimately elected President of the Russian Federation, including his legal personality in international relations.

– Cease any cooperation with the aggressor state and its agencies, and expel Russia from all international organizations.
