Tymchuk and Ban Ki-moon on elections in DNR and LNR

On elections in DNR and LNR scheduled for November 2

Terrorist republics DNR and LNR plan to hold elections of Head of the Republics and their ‘parliaments’ on November 2. Russian intends to acknowledge the results of the elections.

In his statement of October 29, US Secretary General Ban Ki-moon called the alleged elections a violation of constitutions and rules of Ukrainian law. He said that these elections would bury Minsk agreements that should be fully implemented.


Head of Center of Military and Political Studies and Coordinator of Information Resistance group Dmytro Tymchuk wrote the following concerning terrorist elections in Donbas.

For Tymchuk the scenario currently played in Donbas is quite obvious.

Fighters from DNR and LNR [Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics] imitate elections on the orders from Kremlin. After the announcement of the pre-drawn result these elections will be recognized by Moscow. Them Putin will force Kyiv to recognize ‘legitimate’ authorities and lead further negotiations with them. Like, why do we have to hold elections on December 7 if people have already made their choice?

It is obvious that the scheduled Election Day is a cynical attempt to disrupt Minsk agreements. All world leaders have directly indicated this to Putin – from Obama to Ban Ki-moon.

Besides, holding of elections on November 2 and 9 actually multiplies by zero laws on amnesty and procedures of local government on the occupied territories of Donbas. All contractual base on which the ceasefire regime and establishment of buffer zone has been line will be destroyed with one hit. We will go back to the beginning of September.

Dmytro Tymchuk believes that the only way for Ukraine to achieve victory over terrorists and put Kremlin dwarfs on their place is to be firm and consistent in one’s actions.

Parts of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts are under occupation. Gangs of criminals and their supporters are trying to organize elections. What in fact occurs is an activity presupposed by part 3 of article 109 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine, namely ‘actions aimed on changing by orce or overthrowing of constitutional order or the seizure of state power’. It is done by an organized group and mass media are involved.

We have previously seen the same situation in Crimea and Sevastopol.

According to Tymchuk this means that:

  • Attorney General’s Office is obliged to start a criminal case on the violation of the named article of Criminal Code
  • Data from Attorney General’s Office need to be transferred to Security Service of Ukraine for pre-trial investigation
  • All people involved in this law violation must be determined. These should be not only terrorists and ‘candidates’, but all who called for the elections. This includes all members of ‘electoral commissions’ and various agitators.
  • It should be clearly stated that decisions of the ‘chosen’ authorities have no legal consequences.

In additions, it is necessary to adopt legal act that would eliminate all loopholes for the organizers of elections in Donbas.

Putin’s helpers in Donbas must understand that they buy themselves unlucky one-way ticket.
