Milorad Dodik’s hostile statements on the recognition of Crimea and other Ukrainian territories as Russian can threaten the friendly relations between the two countries and damage Bosnia’s authority in the international community, the Ukrainian Embassy said.

Recalling Dodik’s earlier statements of his future initiative on the recognition of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Stevastopol (Ukraine) as parts of Russia, and the referendum on Crimea’s accession to the Russian Federation as legitimate and democratic, the Ukrainian Embassy said that "such statements are completely contrary to the EU, US and international community’s attitudes towards the Crimea referendum and its annexation by the Russian Federation."

Bosnia and Herzegovina held a general election on Sunday, October 7, where the citizens voted for three Presidency members, the state and entity parliaments and cantonal assemblies in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH) entity.

According to the state election watchdog, the future three presidency members are Sefik Dzaferovic, from among the Bosniak people, Zeljko Komsic from among the Croat people and Milorad Dodik from among the Serb people.

They pointed out that Ukraine and the international community will continue to see the referendum and its consequences as illegitimate because it was implemented during the “Rusian aggression on Ukraine, violating the Ukrainian Constitution as well as the Constitution of the Autonomous Crimea region, the UN Charter and the international Law protecting the sovereignty and territorial integrity of existing states."
