As it was reported earlier, on August 8, 2020, the Central Election Commission, based on the conclusions of the Donetsk and Luhansk regional military-civil administrations, established the impossibility of holding local elections on October 25, 2020 in 10 territorial communities of Donetsk region and 8 communities of Luhansk region.

On January 16, 2021, the CEC declared the impossibility of holding elections at these polling stations. In May 2021, the Court of Appeal ruled the CEC decision on the impossibility of holding local elections in Donbas was illegal.
