The "DNR" leader Denis Pushilin has supported the idea of holding local election, which seriously violate all the Minsk agreements. This is reported by separatist media.
Just before, functionaries of the "Donetsk Republic" social movement, as the ruling "DNR" party, proposed to develop a "bill" on local governments.
The next day, Pushilin showed full support for this "initiative".
"Adoption of the "law" will help to solve a number of local problems, while streamlining the system of local self-government and putting it on legitimate rails optimizes the process of managing the state in general", - local media quote the republic's leader.
The "people's council" promised that work on the document would begin during the spring session.
Meanwhile, the idea of creating its own local authorities in the occupied territories of Donetsk oblast runs counter to the main provisions of the Minsk agreements.
As previously reported, the Minsk agreements, first of all, provide for the restoration of the territorial integrity of Ukraine by providing the temporarily occupied territories of Donbass with the status of "areas with a special order of local self-government". As for the local elections, according to the Minsk agreements, they should be held under the Ukrainian law. "To start a dialogue on the modalities of holding local elections in accordance with the Ukrainian legislation and the Law of Ukraine "On the temporary order of local self-government in certain areas of the Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts", - paragraph 4 of the Set of Measures for Implementing the Minsk agreements said. Then, paragraph 12 of the Set of Measures emphasizes that "the elections will be held in compliance with the relevant OSCE standards when monitored by the ODIHR of the OSCE".
