The elections in the uncontrolled territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions cannot take place due to the absence of the control of the border by the Ukrainian side as Politico Europe reported citing President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky.
“I told to President of France Macron and Chancellor of Germany Merkel and President of Russia Putin that we will not have observers there if there is no border if we cannot control the pace of the election. Any of the western observers would be able to come there. That is why the elections will never be open there. From the point of view of safety, there will no free access for all parties. But it should be – the free will of people should take place. No law enforcement system will be there. We do not know what will take place if there is no controlled border between Ukraine and Russia,” he said.
