The UK does not and will not recognise voting on amendments to the Russian constitution in the territory of the occupied Crimea.

“Russia’s use of Crimea for voting on amendments to the Russian constitution is unacceptable. The UK does not and will not recognise such voting on sovereign Ukrainian territory.  We stand in solidarity with Ukraine in reminding Russia and the world that Crimea is Ukraine,” the Embassy of the United Kingdom in Ukraine posted on Twitter.

As a reminder, 77.9% of referendum participants voted for the amendments to the Constitution of Russia which zero out the presidential term of Vladimir Putin.

At the same time, Russia held voting on the territory of the occupied Crimea. The so-called authorities stated that the Crimean peninsula became one of the regions with the greatest support for amendments – more than 90%. The voter turnout in Russia was 67.9%, in Crimea – 81%.

The referendum on amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation lasted from June 25 to July 1.

The Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol were illegally annexed by the Russian Federation on 18 March 2014.
