DONETSK, May 11, 12:15 /ITAR-TASS/. Communication is lost with two territorial self-determination referendum committees in east Ukraine’s Donetsk regional town of Krasny Liman, where, according to preliminary reports, militiamen are clashing with Ukrainian law enforcers in a punitive operation, co-chairman of the government of the self-proclaimed Donetsk people’s republic Denis Pushilin told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
“There is no information from the town of Krasny Liman, because communication is lost with two territorial referendum committees,” Pushilin added.
Meanwhile, serious problems are arising over security in southeast Ukraine’s Lugansk Region, where a referendum on self-determination is also under way. “There are many problems here,” representative of the Lugansk referendum press centre Vasily Nikitin told Itar-Tass, adding that “Armed people, a certain “national guard’ are intimidating people in a district and are moving military hardware from one settlement to another.”
Polling stations opened at 8am local time (6am BST) on Sunday in southeast Ukraine’s Donetsk and Lugansk regions. Some of them will be open until 10pm local time (8pm BST). However, polling stations will close earlier between 6pm and 8pm local time in many cities and villages.
Voting results will be announced on Monday, May 12.
