The so-called “Chairman of national Council of DNR” Denis Pushilin, said the possibility not only of holding the “election” of the leaders of the “LNR” and “DNR” and the new “referendum”. About it reports TASS.
In particular, he connects the “referendum” with the possible refusal of Kyiv to extend the law on the special status ORDO.
“In Ukraine, hinting that this law in October may not be renewed and will cease to exist. It would mean the failure of Kiev from the Minsk agreements, and therefore, from the perspective to build between Kiev and Donbass contractual relationship, to resume trade relations and so on. That is, will become clear that no integration will not be necessary as soon as possible to finish our “independence” and to strengthen “sovereign statehood”, – he said.
Pushilin stated that in this case, it will decide on holding “elections” of heads self-proclaimed “republics” and “municipality”.
“Then you need to hold “elections” Chapter, and “people’s Council”. And not only. Would have to conduct “municipal elections”. They still delayed, because the fall under the Minsk agreement. But if Kiev of these agreements will be released, we can conduct them ourselves,” – said Pushilin.
“You will also need a “national referendum” with a clear question than in 2014. For example: “You are for the Donetsk people’s Republic was an independent sovereign state?”, – he is sure.
Earlier it was reported that the militants decided to postpone indefinitely the “election” of the leaders of the so-called “LNR” and “DNR”. Sources in the Kremlin said that the so-called “elections” postponed for several reasons, including because of the lack of necessity in the re-election of the so-called “lawmakers” and “leaders” of the breakaway “republics”; because of the risks to the Minsk talks and the prospects of new sanctions.
In addition, the U.S. special representative on Ukraine Kurt Volker said that Ukraine will be in a disadvantageous situation, if not prolong action of the law on the special status of Donbass. In his opinion, the law was passed, but no application of this law.
The MPs claim that the law on the special status of Donbass will not be renewed, because at this point, the law on de-occupation.
Note that on the territory of Donetsk and Lugansk regions were held an illegal “referendum” on may 11, 2014. No international organization sent its observers there. By the way that Russia acted similarly.
The results were not recognized neither Ukraine nor the European Union nor the United States.
