Волкер оценил возможность выборов на Донбассе

The US special envoy on Ukraine Kurt Volker arrived in Kiev

The American diplomat said of the inevitable elections in ORDO, but they must be free and fair.

Special envoy of the US state Department on Ukraine Kurt Volker believes that a prerequisite for holding elections in the Donbass is the denial of the separatists in control of the region. He said this at a press conference in the framework of the annual forum of the Yalta European strategy (YES), reports Ukrainska Pravda on Saturday, September 14.

Walker stressed that the conditions for elections in ORDO, which he believes is inevitable – is that elections must be free and fair.

“Free elections can take place only in a free environment, he stressed. – This means that Russia and its henchmen can’t control the situation in the Donbass during the elections”.

The Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Vadim Pristayko, who was present at the press conference, confirmed that Ukraine will not agree to elections in the conditions of the separatists.

“We never agreed to local elections for the separatists. This assumption can simply be discarded immediately,” he said.

The head of state said that the elections in uncontrolled Donbass will be held under Ukrainian law.

On the eve of President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said that the elections in uncontrolled Donbass will be held only after the diversion of troops and by Ukrainian laws.
