The Council of the European Union is ready to impose additional sanctions against sham elections in the occupied areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko claimed this on Twitter.

As is known, the so-called elections took place in the occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions November 11. The voters elected the leaders of 'people's republics' and their representatives in the parliaments of the 'republics.'

It was reported that Leonid Pasechnyk was chosen as the "head" of the self-proclaimed republic at the illegal "elections" in the separate parts of Luhansk regions (Luhansk People's Republic, LPR). Denis Pushilin was "elected" as the head of the territory of Donetsk region occupied by the pro-Russian militants (Donetsk People's Republic, DPR).

Ukraine, the U.S., and the EU unanimously condemned the voting, considering it illegitimate.

Besides, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko urged Ukrainians living in occupied Donbas not to vote at the fake elections on November 11. The EU has already condemned the "elections" in Donbas and urged Russia to influence the separatists supported by it.
