The U.K., U.S., and Germany all reject Russia’s election results.



Former British Prime Minister David Cameron said Monday that the Russian election results revealed “the depth of repression” under President Vladimir Putin.

The Kremlin hailed Putin’s sweeping re-election to a fifth term in power as “eloquent confirmation” of popular support.


Cameron, who currently serves as the foreign minister, stated on Sunday evening that the election was not free and fair and that the results were undemocratic.

“These Russian elections starkly underline the depth of repression under President Putin’s regime, which seeks to silence any opposition to his illegal war (in Ukraine),” he said in a prepared statement.


In a similar event, a German government official announced that German Chancellor Olaf Scholz would not congratulate Russian President Vladimir Putin on his reelection in a poll that Berlin considered neither free nor fair.”The result was predetermined,” the spokesman stated during a government news conference in Berlin, referring to Russia as a dictatorship.


The White House expressed concern about the impartiality of the Russian election results.The White House criticised Russian elections as “obviously neither free nor fair” and questioned the validity of holding them on Ukrainian territory. The White House reiterated its commitment to helping Ukrainians protect their democracy.
