Chairman of the State Duma Committee for Security and Anti-Corruption Irina Yarovaya has responded to the demand of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine to recognize the Duma elections illegitimate as they were held in the occupied Crimea as well, reported RIA Novosti.

We sincerely wish Ukrainian Rada not to waste time on stupid statements and please not only the State Department, said Yarovaya. She also said that the State Duma is based on "national sovereignty, security and freedom", but the Ukrainian parliament is not.

The Verkhovna Rada registered a draft resolution on the non-recognition of the legitimacy of the "election" to the State Duma of the Russian Federation due to the voting held in the territory of the annexed Crimea.
