Sanctions against so-called “elections” in the occupied areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions will be imposed. President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko claimed this during the joint briefing with President of Slovakia Andrej Kiska.
‘I am sure that through joint efforts, political and diplomatic way Crimea, as well as the occupied territory of Donbas where fake elections were held with the participation of Russia, which destroy the Minsk process, demonstrate complete disregard on the part of the Russian Federation,’ Poroshenko claimed.
He added that he commissioned the Ukrainian MFA to react to the violation of the international law by Russia.
As it was reported, the militants scheduled the so-called elections in occupied Donbas on Sunday, November 11. The 'heads of the republics' and 'the local MPs' are to be elected. Ukraine and the international community have already condemned such “elections”. The representatives of the Kremlin stated that they decide on recognition or non-recognition after the final results. The President of Ukraine expects new anti-Russian sanctions due to the 'voting'.
The Secretary of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council Oleksandr Turchynov stated that all the organizers and the participants of the 'elections' on November 11 would be found and prosecuted according to the Ukrainian legislation.
