Ukraine had enough of the sad experience of electoral farces, and holding another local election in front of the gun barrels would be a farce.  Pavlo Klimkin, the foreign minister of Ukraine, tweeted this on February 7.

‘Two electoral farces, held in front of the Russian machineguns resulted in two occupant governments in Crimea and Donbas. Enough of this!,’ the post reads.

Earlier today, Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry summoned German ambassador Ernst Reichel because of his most recent statements about the conflict in eastern Ukraine. Previously, Reichel said it was possible to hold the local election in Donbas even before the Russian regular troops withdraw from the occupied territories of eastern Ukraine.
