Declared the self-proclaimed “LDNR” so-called “elections” are illegitimate. This was stated by the special envoy of the US state Department in Ukraine Kurt Volker, reports DW.
According to Volcker, “elections” in the occupied Donbass violate the logic of the Minsk agreements. Thus in ORDA lack basic security conditions.
“If you follow the logic of the Minsk agreements and the return of this territory under control of Ukraine, then these formations must disappear. Because the election itself is illegitimate, given the conditions of security, but also because it is not the education that should exist. When there is safety – and then have to be elections,” said Walker.
At the same time, he stressed that he doubted the possibility in the near future to achieve progress in the negotiations on the settlement of the situation in the East of Ukraine. In his opinion, Moscow has taken a wait.
“I think that the Russians obviously decided not to take any effort for peace, but rather to wait for the results of elections in Ukraine”, – said Walker.
Earlier, the militants announced the holding of “elections” on the territory of “DNR” and “LNR” on November 11 2018. The so-called “Donetsk people’s Republic” plans to hold “elections” leader in connection with the death of Alexander Zakharchenko.
In ORDO the suspect in the murder of a guard Zakharchenko and foreign Minister accuses the “Kiev regime”. At the same time, the SBU reported that “the death of Zakharchenko can be the result of internal criminal conflicts among the militants, primarily associated with the redistribution of captured business for 2014-2018”. And the foreign Ministry of Ukraine said that the rapid reaction of the Russian foreign Ministry regarding the murder Zakharchenko is a Russian attempt to cover up the puppets, which it supports. 2 Sep buried Zakharchenko in Donetsk near the militants “Givi” and “Motorola”.
