“Russia: (the EU) regrets the (Russian) decision to declare the election monitoring (ENEMO network) ‘undesirable organisation.

‘ Transparency, accountability & respect of fundamental freedoms cannot be considered ‘a threat to the foundations of the constitutional order & security in Russia!'” Stano wrote on Twitter.
