Citing the source in Kremlin, it is specified that the so-called “election” was postponed due to a few reasons, including the absence of the necessity to re-elect the so-called “MPs” and “leaders” of the self-proclaimed “republics”, due to the risks for the Minsk Talks and the prospects of the new sanctions. As a result, the militants did not hold the preparations for “the election” in occupied Donbas.

“The funds were not allocated for this process and there were no direct orders on its holding from Moscow,” the source said.

However, in August, the “public movements” of self-proclaimed republics offered to prolong the authorities of the so-called “heads” and “MPs” from four to five years.

The sociologists from Moscow came to Donetsk in the summer and analyzed the attitude in the society and found out that the snapshot of the views “turned out to be quietly unfavorable for the current team”.
