The Ukrainian authorities hope that the OSCE recognizes as illegitimate the upcoming elections in the breakaway Donetsk and Lugansk national republics, said Tuesday the representative of Kiev in the humanitarian sub-group on Donbass Irina Gerashchenko.

Elections of heads and deputies of the DPR and the LPR is planned for November 11. Kiev has already declared that does not recognize the elections.

«We appealed to the special representative of the OSCE Chairman, Minister for foreign Affairs of Italy, Ambassador Martin Sidiku with a request to prepare a special statement from presiding in the OSCE country, which clearly (requested) specify the illegitimacy of the elections in the occupied territories», — wrote Gerashchenko on his page in Facebook.

According to her, Kiev is asking the OSCE to «make clear» that the elections in the Donbass can be held solely under the Ukrainian legislation, under the supervision of international observers.

The Ukrainian authorities in April 2014 began a military operation against the breakaway LC and the DNI, which declared independence after a coup in Ukraine in February 2014. According to the latest UN victims of the conflict began more than 10 thousand people. The settlement of the situation in the Donbass is discussed, including during meetings in Minsk the contact group, which from September 2014 adopted three documents regulating the steps to de-escalate the conflict. However, after the armistice agreements between the parties to the conflict continue shooting.
