Occupation authorities of the "LNR" are trying to give the planned "elections" at least some semblance of legitimacy using the comments of random people who are called "foreign observers". Such a substitution of notions can often be seen in separatist media. For example, a certain observer from Yemen named Al-Hasheb Rashid Abdulkudos Ibrahim signed under another statement that the election in the "LNR" is the way to build the "basic norms of democracy" and that the "elections" in the occupied Donbass, not recognized by the whole world by default, "do not contradict the Minsk agreements". As the vigilant users of social networks have noticed, the Arab medical student from Russian Oryol, who does not represent any serious democratic institution, has acted as a "foreign observer".
From November 1, the so-called "Border Guard Service" of the "Ministry of State Security of the LNR" will carry out the passage of persons through the contact line at the Stanytsia Luhanska checkpoint from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. local time. This is written by separatist media.
The "police" in occupied Luhansk neutralized a robber who terrorized women. "Sverdlovsk - you should know this" group writes this on social network. According to the source, a 28-year-old resident of Luhansk Anton Ivanchenko, who had previously been convicted of murder, carjacking, robbery and possession of weapons, turned out to be a robber. It was reported earlier that an unknown person attacked a 22-year-old girl with a knife on the Lineva Street in Luhansk.
A large-scale theft was committed in the building of central department store in occupied Donetsk.
