The Ukrainian side in the Trilateral contact group on Donbas raised the issue of the elimination of the so called Luhansk and Donetsk People’s Republics. This was reported by Leonid Kuchma’s Spokeswoman Daria Olifer on Facebook.
"Ukraine raised the question of the abolition of the fake quasi-structures that were created in the Luhansk and Donetsk regions in 2014. In particular, we are talking about the abolition of pseudo-results of the elections as of November 2, 2014," wrote Olifer.
Kyiv also stressed its position that the holding of elections on the territory that is not controlled by the Ukrainian authorities, "where there are 40000 foreign troops and a large number of weapons, is not possible".
Recall, today there was a meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group in Minsk. The main topic of the meeting was the release of illegally detained persons, as well as the possibility of the ICRC to get access to them.
