After the introduction of peacekeepers in the Donbass there will be prerequisites for holding local elections in the region, said US State Department Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker in an interview with the Ukrainian “Mirror of the Week”. 

According to Volker, the security issue in the conflict zone in the Donbass “can be resolved after the introduction of peacekeeping forces.”

“This is one of the reasons for the slowdown of the Minsk process: on the one hand, there is an agreement to hold elections, on the other hand, in the current situation, their implementation is unrealistic. If an acceptable way of attracting international peacekeeping forces is found, then a safe tool, a physical control of the territory will appear, in conditions of effective international monitoring, the organization of local elections is possible ” – he declared. 

The Special Representative of the State Department added that local elections should be held on Ukrainian terms, and in addition, kraine should gain access to the uncontrolled part of the Donbass. When maybe cows fly.
