The announcement of the representatives of DPR, LPR Denis Pushilin and Vladislav Deinego of the postponement of the elections scheduled on October 18 and November 1 to the next year revealed Russia as a direct party to the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine, said Pavlo Nuss, a political analyst on his Facebook, Joinfo.ua reports.
“Pro-Russian occupational administrations in DPR and LPR speaking through their puppets, declared the refusal to hold “elections in the republics”, scheduled on October-November 2015. The next step of the Ukrainian delegation in Minsk was to require of Moscow and its puppets in the east of the country to cancel the results of so-called “republican parliamentary elections” that were held on the orders of the Kremlin after the occupation.
In my opinion, Russia will fulfill this requirement of Kiev too.
What has actually happened?
The refusal of the separatists to hold the “election” suggests that in Paris the Ukrainian President has, so to speak, forced Russia to play by the rules of the coalition (of Kiev, Berlin and Paris). By fulfilling the requirement to cancel the unauthorized elections, the Kremlin’s puppets proved that Russia was a direct party to the armed conflict and aggression in Donbas.
Of course, this undermines Putin’s position, and this tactic of Ukrainian President’s office deserves trust and respect.
We are following the events,” – wrote the analyst.
