This was announced by the author of the bill, People's Front MP Heorhii Lohvynskyi, Censor.NET reports.
"In fact, Russia has got itself into some sort of a legal trap. Our task is to spring it. Otherwise we will again demonstrate that we cannot be an entity that recognizes simple legal facts," Lohvynskyi said.
Answering a question on possible consequences of the world community's non-recognition of the State Duma elections in Russia, the lawmaker said: "Russia is acting using the old Soviet methods, repeating the Soviet Union's path - its invasions follow one another, just like those of Nagorniy Karabakh and Transniestria," he stated.
"Today, Russia is attempting to show that it's above the global community. Russia's actions are not aimed at fulfilling international requirements, so they are facing the same isolation as during the Cold War, when the international community said that the USSR had no human rights and would be isolated until those rights are restored," Lohvynskyi said.
As reported, Russia's parliamentary elections were held on Sept. 18, 2016. The election campaign and the elections were also held in Ukraine's Crimea annexed by Russia in the spring of 2014. The Russian Federation opened four polling stations in its diplomatic missions in Kyiv, Lviv, Odesa and Kharkiv.
Sept. 19, the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine strongly condemned the "elections" to the State Duma of the seventh convocation organized by the Russian Federation in the territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol temporarily occupied by it in flagrant violation of the fundamental norms and principles of the international law.
