Klimkin calls elections in Donbas and Crimean territories occupied by Russia at Russian gunpoints as 'farce'
Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin has called elections in the territories of Donbas and Crimea occupied by Russia as 'farce' and noted that Kyiv no longer needs such farces.
"Two electoral farces at Russian gun points have resulted in two occupation authorities in the occupied Crimea and Donbas. These are enough farces," Klimkin wrote on his Twitter on Tuesday.
Earlier, in an interview with the media, German Ambassador to Ukraine Ernst Reichel said that the elections in Donbas could take place in the presence of Russian troops.
