“There are no elementary grounds for observers’ work there now because the committee for the CIS hasn’t received an invitation to send observers either from the Ukrainian parliament or from the CIS Executive Committee,” Slutsky said.
“Most typically, such invitations are sent a month before voting at the latest but now slightly more than two weeks have been left,” he said.
If the invitations come, for instance, from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe in the remaining weeks, Russian parliament will consider a possibility of delegating Duma deputies to the international missions for observing the parliamentary election in Ukraine.
Russian President Vladimir Putin earlier said he hopes Ukraine's parliamentary election due on October 26 will help bring political stability to the war-torn country.
Putin warned Ukraine against discrimination on language, ethnic and religious grounds during the election.
The Russian president said this is the only way for Ukraine to preserve its territorial integrity and become united again, as well as to ensure the development in economic and social spheres.
