Donetsk

03 Nov 2014

After a landslide vote, Aleksandr Zakharchenko, a former mining electrician, has been named Prime Minister of the self-declared Donetsk People's Republic. Kiev and the EU have both denounced the elections as illegal and illegitimate, saying that elections in the 'people's republics' of Donetsk and Luhansk have worsened the growing tension between Russia and the West over the conflict in Eastern Ukraine.

"I consider today's presidential and parliamentary elections' in Donetsk and Luhansk 'People's Republics' a new obstacle on the path towards peace in Ukraine," said Federica Mogherini, the EU's foreign policy chief.

Two other candidates, Alexander Kofman and Yuri Sivokonenko, faced Zakharchenko in the vote, taking around ten percent of the vote each. However, no non-separatist parties were present on the ballot, and the local communist party was banned from participating in the elections.

At his inauguration on November 4, Zakharchenko rallied his supporters around a call to rebuild Donetsk and warned Kiev that any further military operations in the self-declared republic would be met with armed resistance.

The Russian Foreign Ministry endorsed the results of the elections in Donetsk and Luhansk and released a statement expressing their respect for the will of the people in Eastern Ukraine and calling on the elected officials to take practical steps toward restoring order in the region. Russia, however, still considers the Donbass region to be part of Ukraine, and called for renewed dialogue with the Kiev government.
