Statement of deputies of the ChRI Parliament
Legal elections on the territory of Chechnya are possible only after the
expulsion of the Russian troops.
We, deputies of the Parliament of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria,
declare that no elections can be held on 5 October, 2003, on the
territory of the sovereign and independent democratic legal state of the
Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, in connection with the military occupation
of our state territory by the criminal troops of the Russian Federation
- Russia. Under the muzzles of automatic weapons, under the threat of
death, there can be no voluntary elections!
We issue a call to the international community to support our position
in this question, which is in full correspondence with morals and valid
international law. We turn directly to the international organizations -
the UN, OSCE, PACE and the Euro-Parliament: Boycott what contradicts the
rules of your organizations, the conducting of elections by an occupying
criminal regime during a continuing war, in this case on the territory
On 12 September, 2003, the illegal motion to declare the impeachment of
the President of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, Maskhadov, was spread
widely by the Russian media. This treacherous act was carried out by
several deputies of the Parliament of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria
in order to give an appearance of legitimacy to the "election" of a
puppet president on 5 October, 2003.
We declare that the question of a declaration of impeachment of the
President of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, Maskhadov, on 5
September, 2003, wasn't discussed with our participation in the session
of the Parliament of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, and therefore it
has no legal force.
In these difficult years of struggle for its existence, our state has
suffered huge human and material losses; however, we have been hardened
very much, which allows us to state:
We believe that the struggle of our people is doomed to success. We
believe that the international community, too, will rid itself of the
false Russian propaganda against the Chechen people and come forward on
our side. The Parliament of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria was always
and will always remain with its people.
