MOSCOW, September 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Voters in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) will not take part in October 26 elections to choose deputies for Ukraine's Verkhovna Rada in Kiev, DPR deputy prime minister Andrei Purgin said.
"We will ignore the elections," Purgin said. "We will hold elections in the republic by the end of the year," he noted. The date has not yet been decided as there was no law governing elections across the territory, Purgin said.
Elections to the republic's parliament were planned alongside possible contests to elect local government administrations, he added.
