DONETSK, May 04 /ITAR-TASS/. Current situation in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk is calm, the city is preparing to a referendum on the status of the self-proclaimed Donetsk people’s republic, co-chairman of the Donetsk republican government Denis Pushilin told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
“Current situation in the city of Donetsk is calm. Current Kiev authorities did not make any threats against us any longer,” he noted, adding that “We are preparing comprehensively to a referendum due on May 11. We are forming district election committees and are printing ballot papers.”
Pushilin has made public a question which will be put for a referendum. “Do you support an act of independence of the Donetsk people’s republic. Yes or no are options for answer,” he noted.
The Donetsk republican government co-chairman said that he was looking into current situation in another eastern Ukrainian city of Kramatorsk where military units under Kiev control are carrying out a punitive operation. Law enforcers managed to oust federalisation supporters from the city, Ukrainian media reported. “Contradictory reports are coming to us. We expect an official confirmation,” Pushilin noted.
