The European Parliament will not observe the 2024 Russian presidential election

Press statement by MEPs David McAllister and Tomas Tobé on the presidential election of the Russian Federation on 15-17 March 2024.

„Presidential elections will take place in the Russian Federation on 15-17 March 2024.

The European Parliament will not observe this electoral process and consequently will comment neither on the process nor on the results that will be announced afterwards. No individual Member of the European Parliament has been mandated to observe or comment on this electoral process on its behalf, neither in the territory of the Russian Federation nor in the illegally annexed territory of Crimea or the territories of Ukraine illegally occupied by Russia.

Therefore, if any Member of the European Parliament decides to comment on these elections, they would do so on their own initiative and should under no circumstances commit the European Parliament through any statement or action“.
