Pro-russian fighters have blocked the center of Donetsk city due to preparations for Inauguration of the newly-elected leader Alexander Zakharchenko.
Journalist Petro Shelomovskiy informed this in his twitter. According to him, the so-called police blocked the center of the city.
‘Inauguration’ of Zakharchenko is to take place in Donetsk Drama Theatre this night.
We remind that on November 2 terrorists held the so-called election on the occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts. Results of voting showed that in DNR [Donetsk People’s Republic] they ‘elected’ their current leader Zakharchenko.
It should be reminded that EU and USA refused to recognize these pseudo elections and so did Ukraine. These elections violated Minsk agreements. On the contrary, Russian authorities claimed their readiness to recognize elections and demanded Ukraine to do it. According to Russian Foreign Minister these elections are the part of legitimization of the rebel authorities.
