LUGANSK, November 3. /TASS/. The United States may change its relation to the status of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, a US observer at Sunday’s elections has said.
“This is a matter of time” Frank Abernathy, publisher of the US - Ukraine Observer magazine, said.
He said the polls held in both republics on Sunday to elect their heads and representatives of legislative bodies were fair.
An Austrian observer, Ewald Stadtler, said at a press conference that Europe will later have to establish dialogue with the legitimately elected leadership of the Donetsk People’s Republic.
Some 300 representatives of Greece, Slovakia, Serbia, the Czech Republic, France, the United States, Israel, Germany and Montenegro observed the elections on Sunday.
Russia did not send an official mission to the elections, but lawmakers of the lower house of parliament, the State Duma, came there on a non-official visit.
