Federation Council - Sputnik International, 1920, 03.04.2024
The Federation Council passed a resolution urging the United Nations and global parliaments to denounce meddling by Western countries in Russia's presidential election.
The Federation Council's Address to the UN and International Parliamentary Organizations reads:
"The Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation strongly condemns the attempts at external interference during the preparation and conduct of the elections of the President of the Russian Federation, which began even before they were set in place.
The meddling attempts, largely orchestrated by Washington, took place on multiple fronts. One such instance was the adoption of a resolution in October 2023 by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe. This resolution not only questions the legitimacy of the Russian Presidential elections, but also the constitutional amendments approved in a nationwide vote on July 1, 2020, in Russia.
High-ranking Western politicians, such as President of the European Parliament Roberta Metsola, made public statements before the start of the voting, declaring that they would not recognize the results of the Russian presidential elections.
Furthermore, Western politicians and foreign media relied heavily on data sourced from individuals listed as foreign agents by the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation. These reports claimed over 1,500 violations in the elections, yet only 2 percent were actually confirmed after a thorough investigation. However, these confirmed violations were deemed to have had no impact on the overall outcome of the elections.
Attempts to set up an illegal digital platform for conducting fraudulent "alternative" Russian presidential elections from foreign locations;
Violating the legal prohibition on pre-election campaigning on voting days, including organizing a protest at noon on March 17, 2024, instigated from overseas;
Disseminating calls from abroad, particularly on social media, urging unlawful activities at polling stations, resulting in significant breaches of law in multiple Russian regions, such as setting voting urns on fire and tampering with ballots using coloring agents;
Deliberately creating artificial interference and obstacles for Russian citizens abroad during the voting process by representatives of unfriendly states;
Harassment from abroad against election organizers, including intimidating members of election commissions by including them in illegal sanction lists of certain countries;
Planning and executing over 12 million cyberattacks on the official website of the Central Election Commission of the Russian Federation on the "Internet" information and telecommunication network, including DoS attacks;
Obstructing the arrival of invited foreign (international) observers to Russia.
Actions to disrupt the elections of the President of the Russian Federation were also taken by the Kiev regime, instigated by their NATO handlers.
Armed formations of Ukraine shelled polling stations in the border regions of the Russian Federation, and actively used explosive-carrying unmanned aerial vehicles against civilian objects in the constituent entities of the Russian Federation during the election period, in addition to carrying out armed incursion attempts on the territory of the Kursk and Belgorod regions, which were solidly repulsed. As a result of these criminal actions, innocent civilians, including children, were killed.
The day after the results of the Russian presidential elections were announced, a bloody act of terrorism was unleashed by foreign individuals at the "Crocus City Hall" (located in the city of Krasnogorsk, Moscow region) concert hall, resulting in the deaths of over 140 people. Therefore, it can be stated that universally recognized principles and norms of international law, the Charter of the United Nations, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights of December 16, 1966, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of December 10, 1948, and the Declaration on the Inadmissibility of Intervention in the Domestic Affairs of States, on the Protection of their Independence and Sovereignty of December 21, 1965, were blatantly violated.
The senators of the Russian Federation welcome the position of the majority of world states that refused to back the statement initiated by the United States of America and its satellites condemning the organization of the Russian presidential elections.
The Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation calls on the United Nations, international parliamentary organizations, and foreign state parliaments to condemn the actions of Western countries coordinated by Washington in interfering with the preparation and conduct of the Russian presidential elections, obstructing the free expression of the will of Russia’s citizenry, and promoting terrorism and extremism to destabilize the situation in Russia during the election campaign".
Previously, Valentina Matvienko, chairperson of Russia's Federation Council (upper house), handed down instructions to the Committee on International Affairs and the Commission for the Protection of State Sovereignty to take action on this matter.
