A member of the Hungarian political party Jobbik and a representative of Bekes regional council in the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe Tamás Samu Gergő visited the Donbas occupied territories of Ukraine to observe the “elections” held by militants. Ambassador of Ukraine to Hungary Liubov Nepop reported this on Facebook.
The diplomat noted that she had addressed the party leader of the politician, regional authorities and the Hungarian Foreign Ministry over the visit of Tamás Samu to the occupied Donbas.
"We highly value Hungary's support in the restoration of territorial integrity and peace in Ukraine. However, such actions of some “politicians” have to be condemned, adequately reacted to and prevented. Such behaviour is a pursuit of popularity, despite almost daily losses from the ongoing Russian aggression against Ukrainian citizens, including those of Hungarian nationality. It not only violates Ukrainian laws and international legal norms but is simply deeply immoral," Nepop said.
As is known, the so-called elections took place in the occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions on Sunday, November 11. The voters elected the leaders of 'people's republics' and their representatives in the parliaments of the 'republics'.
During the day, the Russian mass media reported that the elections take place "calmly" and "without violations". According to the so-called "Central Election Commissions" of the militants, the voter turnout as at 18:00 made 72,5% in the LPR and 76,2% in the DPR.
Ukraine, the U.S. and the EU unanimously condemned the voting, considering it illegitimate. Russia still has not commented on the outcome of the election.
Besides, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko urged Ukrainians living in the occupied Donbas not to vote at the fake elections on November 11.
