Moscow has commented on cancellation of elections to LDNR


The main reason – unwillingness to create unnecessary irritants for process of peaceful settlement in the current international situation, the expert, close to the Kremlin, considers. Elections in self-proclaimed LPR and the DPR in the current political environment can become an unnecessary irritant for the international community and complicate process of peaceful settlement on Donbass. The political expert, close to the Kremlin, the director of the Center of a political environment Alexey Chesnakov connects information on cancellation of elections which has appeared in media with it in "republics". "I think that the international context is the main reason for possible transfer of elections. Undoubtedly one - such elections can become an unnecessary irritant for process of peaceful settlement today", - he on Wednesday, August 22 has told, to the Russian agency TASS. Besides, Chesnakov has directly connected elections in the quasirepublics with extension by Ukraine of operation of the law on the special status of Donbass. "Judging by a spirit of political leaders in Donetsk and Luhansk to whom I happened to communicate personally on the matter, finally the decision on elections will be made by them taking into account a number of factors, first of all an international situation, progress in implementation of the Minsk Agreement and, of course, extension by Ukraine of operation of the law on the special status. If this law in due time and in full isn't prolonged by the Verkhovna Rada and the president of Ukraine, then the Minsk Agreement should be considered broken on their fault. I am sure that in that case elections in the republics of Donbass will take place this year", - the political scientist has told. We will remind, on August 20 the Russian mass media with reference to sources have reported cancellation of elections in the self-proclaimed LPR and the DPR. Earlier, on August 9, information that "public figures" LPR have suggested local Vlast to consider a question of extension of her "powers" has appeared. The law on the special status of Donbass (the law on creation of necessary conditions for peaceful settlement of a situation in certain districts of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions) has been adopted by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine in 2014. On October 6, 2017 operation of the law on the special status of Donbass has been prolonged for a year - till October 10, 2018. News from the Correspondent.netv of Telegram.
