Ukraine considers holding local elections all over the country. Vadym Prystaiko, the Foreign Minister of Ukraine said so as Interfax-Ukraine quoted him.

The minister, however, noted that it was impossible for now.

"We agreed to Minsk agreements five years ago, which included holding elections. In our opinion, it would be perfect to hold the elections (so far, it's impossible) in our entire country simultaneously. They [in the occupied Donbas] already had two elections, the fake ones, and we don't recognize their results. Now, we offer to hold the elections in the entire territory simultaneously, including the occupied parts. Let's see if it works", he said.
