The announcement of the elections contrary to the spirit of the Minsk agreements.
The European Union considers that the decision to hold the elections of the “DNR” and “LNR” contrary to the Minsk agreements.
The implementation of the Minsk agreements by all parties is the key to achieving a peaceful settlement of the conflict in the East of Ukraine, said in Brussels, and the announcement of the elections in Donetsk and Luhansk was contrary to the spirit and letter of these agreements.
“Avoid any steps that would impede the progress of the implementation of the Minsk agreements. We expect that Russia, in particular, will fully use its influence on separatists in this regard,” – said in a statement.
We will remind that in August Russian media, citing sources reported that Russia has postponed elections in ORDA in the absence of a direct need for them, however, the situation changed after the murder of the leader “DNR” Alexander Zakharchenko, which occurred August 31.
