It may be possible to hold elections in Donbas two or three years after the liberation of the occupied territories, Ukrainian Deputy Minister for Temporarily Occupied Territories and Displaced Persons Heorhiy Tuka said has said in an interview aired by Espreso.TV, according to Interfax-Ukraine.
"I support the official position. At least two or three years should pass before any elections can be conducted [in the occupied territories of Donbas]," Ukrainian Deputy Minister for Temporarily Occupied Territories and Displaced Persons Heorhiy Tuka said.
According to him, it will not be a tragedy if a military and civilian administration operates in the liberated territories of Donbas during these two or three years.
Earlier Tuka claimed Donbas militants are ready to start riot inside occupied territory.
