The Foreign Ministry of Ukraine has condemned the holding of illegal elections in the territory of South Ossetia that is beyond Georgia control.

According to a statement on the official website of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, Kyiv condemns the holding of the so-called “presidential election” and “a referendum on renaming this region of Georgia into the republic of South Ossetia – the state of Alania’” on April 9 in the Tskhinvali region of Georgia by the Russian occupation regime.

“Such illegal actions, along with holding the so-called ‘parliamentary elections’ in the occupied Abkhazian region of Georgia on March 12, 2017, are a gross violation of international law and a constituent element of Russia’s neo-imperial policy aimed at destabilizing and subjugating the states of Eastern Europe,” the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry reported on April 10.
