"Выборы" на Донбассе недействительны - ПА ОБСЕ

The President of the OSCE parliamentary Assembly Giorgi Tsereteli voiced the position of “elections” in “LDNR”

The so-called “elections” in the uncontrolled part of Donbass, the past 11 of November without the consent of Ukraine to the OSCE PA as invalid.

The President of the OSCE parliamentary Assembly Giorgi Tsereteli said that the so-called “elections” in Ukraine uncontrolled part of Donbass, the past 11 of November without the consent of Kiev, without a ceasefire and withdrawal of heavy weapons are invalid. This is stated in his statement, posted on Monday, November 12, on the website of the OSCE PA.

In particular, Tsereteli noted that the OSCE parliamentary Assembly fully supports the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders and has long called for full implementation of the Minsk agreements by all parties that “remains the best path to a lasting settlement of the conflict in the East of Ukraine.”

“For this reason, I deeply regret that the leaders of the separatists controlling part of Donetsk and Lugansk regions, ignored the many calls by the international community on the weekend these “elections” have been cancelled. Conducting of any election without the consent of Ukraine is a clear violation of the sovereignty of the country. Without an effective ceasefire and complete withdrawal of heavy weapons by both parties, such an election will automatically be void,” – said the President of the OSCE PA.

He also stressed that the “elections” held on 11 November, was illegal and provocative.

“Steps such as these only lead to the obstruction of the implementation of the Minsk agreements and should be avoided. I urge all parties to renew efforts within the Normandy format and the Trilateral contact group to facilitate constructive negotiations,” said Tsereteli.

Earlier it became known that the OSCE Permanent Council at the special meeting will discuss the “heads and “members of parliaments” self-proclaimed “DNR” and “LNR”.

Before that, it was reported that NATO does not recognize elections in self-proclaimed “DNR” and “LNR” and calls on Russia to stop supporting separatists.
