DONETSK, May 23 /ITAR-TASS/. Leaders of the newly formed Donetsk People’s Republic will do their utmost not to let elections of the Ukrainian president be held in the republic on May 25, speaker of the republic’s Supreme Council Denis Pushilin said on Friday.
“They may say whatever they want,” he said, commenting on today’s decision of the Ukrainian Central Election Commission to place all Donetsk’s polling station at the city airport. “We will take all possible measures not to hold these elections on another country’s territory.
Ukraine’s National Guards are very near Donetsk, Pushilin said. “We are receiving information that the National Guards are near Donetsk. So far, we have enough forces to ensure security of the city,” he said, adding that the republic leaders had information that Right Sector activists had reached the city. “We will fight for the sovereignty of our republic to the end,” he stressed.
