Poland condemns militants' plans to hold 'elections' in Donbas

Poland condemns the intention of pro-Russian terrorists to hold local elections in the occupied territories of the Donbas on November 11, according to a statement made by the Polish Foreign Ministry. 

In this context, Warsaw reaffirms its support for the territorial integrity of Ukraine.

"The intention of Russian separatists to hold local elections in the occupied part of the Donbas on November 11 clearly contravenes the Minsk agreements and deserves a strong condemnation," reads the statement.

It notes that this is another example of the absence of will regarding real commitment in the implementation of agreements by Russian-backed separatists.

The Polish Foreign Ministry stresses that in this context, it is especially important "to prove even more loudly the support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine."

As reported, on September 7, militants in the occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts scheduled "elections" for November 11. In connection with the decision of the so-called "parliaments" of the terrorist groups "LPR" and "DPR," both the leaders and "deputies" will be elected.

The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said the intentions of the Russian occupation administration to hold the so-called extraordinary elections in the temporarily occupied territories of the Donbas grossly violate Russia's obligations as a party to the Minsk agreements.
