On November 11, the Russian occupation administration made an attempt to legitimize the new Kremlin`s puppets in the temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions. A certain number of individuals who did not have mandates, neither international organizations nor even their political forces illegally visited the occupied territories of Ukraine in order to fulfill the role of scenery in Russian play.
It is evident that being fake observers at fake election in fake republics, where only the Russian military forces and occupation administration are real, can only question the authority and credibility of any politician. This shows once again the Kremlin's widespread investment in extreme right forces and Eurosceptic parties in Europe, but they do not meet their aim – to legitimate the farce in Donetsk and Luhansk regions guided by Russia. We believe that every politician, regardless of whether he is from Belgium, Hungary, Austria or another country, understands its role as an actor of this Russia-led political play and well aware on the responsibility under international law and Ukrainian legislation.
We are grateful to the world democratic community for non-recognition of such fake elections in the occupied Donbas held under Russian Kalashnikov’s and rapid social degradation.
