 "Militants need fake elections to impede peaceful format of return of occupied Donbas," - Turchynov

"None of this is done today. At the same time, they made a decision to hold elections in the "DPR" Oct. 18 and in the "LPR" in early November. These fake elections are necessary to deadlock the situation again, to impede peaceful format of return of the occupied Donbas," the NSDC secretary said.

As previously reported, Oleksandr Turchynov also noted that Ukraine would recognize fake elections in the so-called "DPR" / "LPR" by no means.
