Currently, there is no possibility of holding local elections in the temporarily occupied Donbass. This was stated in an interview with Ukrayinska Pravda by Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Oleksiy Danilov.
According to him, certain conditions must occur to hold the elections in CADLO. "Today, on the day of our communication, I do not see how the elections can be held there", - Danilov noted.
According to him, the elections "must be held on Ukrainian territory, there must be a Ukrainian flag above the polling station, there must be Ukrainian media and Ukrainian political forces. They must be held according to the Ukrainian law, according to the Ukrainian Constitution, and the Ukrainian CEC must hold them there. So far, it is hard to imagine such conditions", - the NSDC secretary stated.
