NDI Condemns Sham Referendums in Ukraine that Violate Rule of Law and International Election Standards

Following Russia’s brutal and unprovoked invasion of Ukraine, Vladimir Putin announced on September 21st his support for referendums that would be held in four of the country’s regions (oblasts) on the question of seceding and joining the Russian Federation. The National Democratic Institute (NDI), which has observed more than 150 elections and referendums in over 70 countries – including Ukraine – condemns the announced referendums, which are illegal under the country’s laws and do not meet international election standards. 

The ground game: Supporting democracy must be part of America’s global strategy.
