Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs regarding the report of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe on the presidential elections in the Russian Federation held on 4 March 2012

On 23 April 2012, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe issued a report on the presidential elections in the Russian Federation held on 4 March 2012.

The report unequivocally condemned the fact that Russian authorities, while openly discarding the fundamental norms and principles of international law, opened the so-called polling stations in the occupied regions of Georgia - Abkhazia and the Tskhinvali region/South Ossetia. The report concluded that opening of the polling stations without the explicit consent of the central Government of Georgia "violated Georgia's territorial integrity as recognized by the international community, including the Assembly." In the Report PACE also stressed that most of the Russian citizens residing in the occupied territories, who voted in these elections had acquired the "Russian passports as a result of the "passportisation" policy that was implemented by the Russian authorities", and was "criticized in the Tagliavini report, as well as by the Assembly in its resolutions on the consequences of the war between Georgia and Russia, as being in violation of international law."

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs welcomes that the fact of illegal opening of the so-called polling stations in Georgia's occupied regions was duly reflected in the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly report.
