In “DNR” today are “election”

The results of pseudo-elections on Donbass do not create any legal consequences and will not be acknowledged neither by Ukraine nor the international community, said the Ukrainian foreign Ministry.

The Ministry of foreign Affairs of Ukraine expressed its resolute protest to Russia in connection with the so-called “elections” in the uncontrolled territories of Donetsk and Lugansk regions.

This reports the press service of the foreign Ministry on Sunday, November 11.

“Russia’s attempt to justify, to organize, and to eventually legitimize the process of fake “voting” in the occupied Donbas is a flagrant violation of the norms and principles of international law, Ukrainian legislation, as well as the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine. At the same time, Russia, as a party to the armed conflict in the Donbass and the signatory of the Minsk agreements, once again fundamentally breached its obligations to them,” – said in a statement.

The foreign Ministry also noted that the results of these elections do not generate any legal consequences and will not be acknowledged neither by Ukraine nor the international community.

“The legitimacy of the elections in the Donbas can only be held in full compliance with Ukrainian legislation and standards of the OSCE,” – said the Minister.

Ukrainian diplomats also expressed indignation that Russia had ignored the clear position of the international community, which condemned the organization of the fake “elections” and called for their abolition.

“Russia bears full responsibility for these illegal actions and the devastating consequences for the peace process,” the statement said.

In addition the Department urged the international community to increase political and economic pressure on the Kremlin, as well as to introduce new sanctions against Russia and individuals directly involved in the organization of the sham “elections”.

We will remind, the separatists announced the decision to hold the November 11, the so-called “elections” in “LDNR” a week after the death in Donetsk of the head “DNR” Alexander Zakharchenko.

Then the Plenipotentiary of Russia in the contact group on settlement in the East of Ukraine, Boris Gryzlov said that “the elections in the Donbass contradict the Minsk agreements”. He also called these elections “are necessary in the current conditions measure.”

Today, November 11, in the “LDNR” started “elections” of heads and “members of parliaments” self-proclaimed “DNR” and “LNR”, despite warnings from Ukrainian authorities not to carry them.
