OSCE Permanent Council will have a session today in Vienna under the request of Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko. The council will discuss the illegal “elections” on the occupied territories of Donbas, as the Head of state said at the session of the Council of regional development, broadcasted by 112 Ukraine.
“Under my request, today, OSCE Permanent Council is summoned in Vienna to discuss one question – illegal elections and violation of Minsk Agreements by Russia,” the President said.
Besides, according to the President, illegal elections will be included in the agenda of the Foreign Affairs Council next meeting, and on the agenda of the Committee of Ministers Council of Europe.
“We demand an immediate calling of the Trilateral Contact Group, where Iryna (Gerashchenko, - ed.) brilliantly represents Ukraine’s positions, yet I want to note that this is a very thankless job,” the President added.
As is known, the so-called elections took place in the occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions on Sunday, November 11. The voters elected the leaders of 'people's republics' and their representatives in the parliaments of the 'republics'.
Ukraine, the U.S. and the EU unanimously condemned the voting, considering it illegitimate. Russia still has not commented on the outcome of the election.
