The leader of the “People’s Republic of Luhansk” Valeriy Bolotov stated that he will not allow to hold the Ukrainian presidential elections in the region on the 25th of May; he promised any sort of opposition, including use of force.
“They (pro-Kiev forces – ed.) will try to organize voting stations by any means. We will not allow it. They will be attacked,” – said V. Bolotov.
He said that military troops and vehicles enter towns leaving behind themselves space, where “they are trying to hold elections”.
According to him it is mainly in the area from the side of Starobelsk.
“Pontoon connection go, as they don’t know that we mined the bridges,” – he said.
Bolotov has also informed that seal and other document for the elections are being transported to the region, however part of them is already seized by the militia.
The leader of the “People’s Republic of Luhansk” addressed residents of Luhansk and all the region asking them not to take part in the elections.
“Residents of the “People’s Republic of Luhansk” have nothing to do with this political profanity,” – he said.
Prosecutors, taking into account the events that occur in the Luhansk region, gathered enough evidence to qualify the activity of the so-called “governor” of Luhansk region Valery Bolotov as the creation of a terrorist organization.
