Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin has handed the list of 140 persons involved in the organization and conduct of the illegal elections in Crimea over to EU member states' foreign ministers.

"We have given European a list of over 140 persons involved in the conduct of the illegal elections in Crimea," the political director of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, Oleksiy Makeyev, said in a commentary for LB.ua.

He noted European foreign ministers' keen interest in the meeting, "there were never so many of them, it seems".

Makeyev earlier said that Ukraine would introduce sanctions against "those involved in the organization of this provocation".

President Petro Poroshenko said the results of the Russian presidential election in Crimea were falsified.
