“There’s a list of conditions that we have to fulfill before we can hold the election. One has to admit that they have not been fulfilled so far. There’s no way to organize election there in this year. As for 2017, it’s really hard to say; there are many things one has to deal with, such as voters lists, returning Ukrainian political parties and the Ukrainian media to the occupied areas”, said Olga Aivazovska, Ukraine’s representative in political subgroup of Minsk group.
