The document states that elections of deputies to the Verkhovna Rada of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, deputies of local councils, city mayors in the temporarily occupied territories of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, Sevastopol, in some districts, cities, towns, and villages of Donetsk and Luhansk regions will not be held.

As we reported earlier, on July 13, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky withdrew a resolution on local elections from the Verkhovna Rada. It was announced by first deputy chairman of the parliament Ruslan Stefanchuk.

It was reported that the reason for the recall was an incorrect description of how elections would be held in the district councils.
