The Ukrainian government announced on March 16 that only Russian diplomats in Ukraine would be allowed to cast ballots in the election, which Vladimir Putin is set to win.
According to the statement, in order to avoid provocations and possible grave consequences on that day the units of the National Police and the National Guard will ensure the proper security of all diplomatic missions and institutions, as well as the adjoining territories, in accordance with the Vienna Convention.
The European Union also stressed the need for Russian Federation to implement the provisions of the UN General Assembly resolution on Ukraine's territorial integrity.
Sunday marks exactly four years since President Vladimir Putin, who is seen as a virtual certainty for a fourth term, signed a treaty declaring Crimea part of Russia after taking control of the former Soviet territory following the ouster of a Russian-backed president in Ukraine's capital Kiev.

However, Russia has not now abandoned its unlawful intentions, according to the Interior Ministry.
Russia's diplomatic establishments in Ukraine are located in four cities - Kyiv, Kharkiv, Odesa and Lviv.
