“Samopomich” does not support elections in the occupied Donbas – Bereziuk

It is inadmissible to hold elections in the uncontrolled by the Ukrainian authorities territories of Donbas.

This was stated by the Chairman of the “Samopomich” faction, Oleh Bereziuk, commenting on the possibility of holding elections in the occupied territories of Donbas.

“The “Samopomich” Union faction will not support the initiative to hold elections in the occupied territories. We have no idea how to conduct elections in the territory which is not under the jurisdiction of the Ukrainian authorities, which the Ukrainian government does not oversee and does not control,” he said.

According to the MP, if to hold elections in the occupied Donbas, then these won’t be the Ukrainian elections, but the elections of the terrorists under the control of the Russian Federation.

“What are we talking about, if the elections in occupied postwar Germany were held only four years after the end of the war? After all, if to hold elections during the war, or after its end, those who started the war will win,” stated the deputy.
