Walker called illegitimate declared by militants in the Donbas “elections”.
The special representative of the US state Department in Ukraine Kurt Volker said declared leaders of the “LNR” and “DNR” “election” illegitimate and violate the logic of the Minsk process.
Volker noted that we are talking about occupied territories, where there are no basic security conditions.
“If you follow the logic of the Minsk agreements and the return of this territory under control of Ukraine, such entities (“LNR” and “DNR” – ed.) should disappear. Because the election itself is illegitimate, given the conditions of security, but also because it is not the education that should exist. When there is safety – and then have to be elections,” he said.
He also expressed doubt that in the coming months will be able to achieve any significant progress in the negotiations on the settlement of the situation in the East of Ukraine. Walker believes that Moscow has taken a wait.
“I think that the Russians obviously decided not to take any effort for peace, but rather wait for the election results in Ukraine”, – he said.
