DONETSK (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 09th November, 2018) The US call to boycott this Sunday's elections in the Donetsk and Luhansk people's republics demonstrate a clear double standard, the Donetsk region envoy to the contact group in Minsk said.
"The hype surrounding elections in the republics and attempts by Kiev and its Western sponsors to cast them as illegal demonstrate an obvious double standard," Natalia Nikonorova said.
In the statement carried by the Donetsk republic's foreign relations department, she called elections a pillar of democracy, saying calls to boycott the vote by a nation that "presents itself as a bulwark of democracy are impressive."
