Freedom House Says Crimean Elections Are Illegitimate


Freedom House, a world-famous international organization defending human rights around the globe is reported to have condemned the recent parliamentary election in the Crimea, which is now a part of the Russian Federation, but Ukraine and the Western world still see the Crimea as a part of Ukraine. The organization says that the elections were illegitimate anyway since the territorial dispute is still underway.
 

 

 

 

According to the Vice-President of Freedom House, despite the fact that the Crimea conducted the same parliamentary election that the Russian Federation did, this is still not going to make the Russian power legitimate in the peninsula.
 
He said that the voting was anything but not a free and just event. To be more specific, the citizens of the Crimea actually didn’t have the opportunity to decide who is going to win the elections and represent the Crimea in the Russian parliament.
 
It’s interesting to note that in the 2016 report, Freedom House rate the Crimea as a territory beyond the control of Ukraine. This means that the organization shares the same opinion with the Western world and doesn’t recognize the Crimea as a part of Russia.
 

 

The level of observing modern political rights and freedoms in the Crimea was rated low – just 7 points. Civil freedoms got 6 points, which is the worst rating possible. Ukraine is also going to recognize those elections illegitimate. The Ukrainian parliament is about to consider this issue in the near future. Ukraine is also going to appeal to the UN, OSCE, and other international organization to ask them to support Ukraine in this dispute around the Crimea.
