 No elections possible with "DPR/LPR" gangster regime in place, - Spanish ambassador to Ukraine

Ambassador of Spain to Ukraine Gerardo Ángel Bugallo Ottone says the Minsk agreements designed to peacefully resolve the situation in the Donbas, can hardly be fulfilled, and Russia-backed militants will oppose free elections in occupied territory.

Censor.NET reports referring to UNIAN quoting the diplomat.

Speaking about the package of measures for the implementation of the Minsk agreements, Ottone said the signing of the deal was necessary to somehow stop the escalation of hostilities and prevent even more deaths.

However, he said the agreements proved totally impractical.

The ambassador recalled that the Minsk deal provides for holding free elections in the Donbas under Ukrainian law and the supervision of international organizations, in particular the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).

He continued to say that even if Russian troops withdraw, the gangster regime in occupied territory will oppose any elections.
