Elections in the terrorist "DNR" and "LNR" will take place approximately at the same time as presidential elections in Russia. This was stated in a video, posted on social networks, by the former commander of the Vostok Battalion and the ex-head of the "committee of state security" of the DNR Alexander Khodakovskiy, - gazeta.ua writes.
"There will be no elections according to Steinmeier's plan, elections will be held according to our own canons. In this case, it will be elections of heads of the republics. More than likely, they will be held approximately in time with the presidential election in Russia", - he said.
Alexander Khodakovsky is a former employee of the SBU, he betrayed the oath and from the first days of the Russian hybrid war against Ukraine became one of the leaders of the Donbass terrorists. He created and led the Vostok battalion. Currently, he is moved away from all official posts in the "DNR". Now he is in the confrontation with the so-called "head of the republic" Alexander Zakharchenko. He stands for an idea of Donbass accession to Russia, but his approach to this matter does not find understanding in the Russian Federation.
