In the occupied territories of Donbas after the murder of the terrorist leader Alexander Zakharchenko, they returned to the plan to hold “elections”. This was reported to RBC by a source close to the Kremlin, and confirmed by two sources close to the “power” of the “LDNR”. They linked the return to the idea of holding “elections” with the murder of Zakharchenko.
On Friday, September 7, the People’s Council of the Democratic People’s Republic of Donbas will officially vote on the election of a new leader of the pseudo-republic, the Kremlin said. From the beginning of 2018 it was planned that the “elections” in the “republics” would be held in the autumn, but in the summer they decided to postpone for an indefinite period, this decision was agreed with Moscow.
