As is known, self-proclaimed leaders of Donetsk and Luhansk people's 'republics' organized and held the so-called election of the local authorities, namely the 'people's councils' and 'governors'. Neither Ukraine nor the international community recognized it.
The Ukrainian delegation in Minsk trilateral contact group demanded to disband the self-styled authorities and facilities in the occupied territories.
