Moscow to recognize elections in Donbas


Russia has claimed that it will recognize the results of elections in Donbas. However, Moscow does not specify what kind of elections it means – the legitimate elections conducted by the Ukrainian authorities, or the elections scheduled by terrorists for November 2.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said this in an interview with LifeNews and the Izvestia newspaper.
“We think that it is a top priority of the Minsk agreements. We expect the elections to take place as planned, and we will certainly recognize their results,” Lavrov said.
“We think that the expression of people’s will should be free, and no one should try to disrupt it,” the Russian minister said.
According to Lavrov, these elections are important for the “legitimization of the authorities in DPR and LPR.” “The elections that will be held on the territory of the self-proclaimed Luhansk and Donetsk People’s Republics will be important from the point of view of legitimatizing their authorities,” he said.
As reported, the so-called “elections of the leaders and parliaments of DPR and LPR” are scheduled for November 2.
