Ukraine calls on the EU to impose sanctions against organizers of the so-called elections in the temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions scheduled for November 11.

Representative of Ukraine to the European Union Mykola Tochytskyi wrote this on Twitter on Saturday.

“We are grateful to the EU for a strong stance on non-recognition of the "elections" to be held on November 11 in Russia-occupied part of Donbas. I call on our partners to impose sanctions against all those involved in their organization - from the top to the lowest level,“ he wrote.

As reported, pro-Russian militants in Donbas announced the holding of so-called "elections" in the occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions scheduled for November 11.

The European Union condemns the “elections” scheduled for November 11, 2018 in the non-government controlled territories of the so-called “Luhansk People’s Republic” and “Donetsk People’s Republic”.

Chief of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) Vasyl Hrytsak called on Ukrainians not to violate Ukrainian legislation and not to vote in the so-called elections in ORDLO.

President Petro Poroshenko at the European People's Party summit in Helsinki called for the intensification of political and sanctions pressure on Russia in connection with pseudo-elections scheduled for November 11 in the temporarily occupied territory of Donbas, as well as for the release of Ukrainian political prisoners of the Kremlin.

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