Political Advisor to the U.S. mission to the OSCE Gregory Makris said that the illegal authorities of the so-called “people’s republics” must be dissolved to hold elections in ARDLE.
“November 11 has been a year since the sham elections of the so-called “people’s republics” in Eastern Ukraine. Russian propaganda aimed at the belief in the legitimacy of these bodies for the “referendum” in the Donbas and in the Crimea, were not successful. Illegal power created by these bogus “elections” is a threat to peace efforts in Eastern Ukraine.
Before in the Donbass can be held any legitimate election, these illegitimate corrupt bodies should be dissolved.”, said Makris.
