ST. PETERSBURG, May 23. /ITAR-TASS/. The legitimacy of the Ukrainian presidential election planned for May 25 raises “major questions", State Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin said on Friday.
According to him, under the current circumstances of the situation in Ukraine, namely a punitive operation in the country’s southeast and rampage of violence, “the legitimacy (of the election) raises major concerns". “But, possibly, the election may become a step towards the future dialogue,” the Duma speaker said in an interview to the Rossiya 24 news TV channel during the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. “I hope that the election will give an impetus to dialogue between the sides,” Naryshkin said.
