    Latvian Foreign Ministry condemns elections organized by Russia in Crimea and Sevastopol

    RIGA, Sept 9 (LETA) - Latvia strongly condemns the elections of the so-called legislative authorities of Crimea and Sevastopol conducted by the Russian Federation on September 8, 2019, LETA learned from the Latvian Foreign Ministry.

    The ministry explained that 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," the ministry said in its statement.

    Russia on Sunday held regional and municipal elections. The elections were held also in Crimea which was occupied by Russia in 2014.
