Russia, the aggressor state, has confirmed their support for the Kremlin puppets at pseudo-elections in Donbas by sending "congratulation letters" to the "leaders" of the so-called "Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics" ("DPR/LPR") terrorist organizations.

Russian Presidential Advisor Vladislav Surkov "has already sent congratulations to Denis Pushilin and Leonid Pasechnik on the occasion of their victory in the elections," Russian state news agency TASS wrote Monday.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the Russian-puppet "DPR" and "LPR" on November 11 held sham "elections" of the so-called "heads of people's republics" and "deputies of people's councils."

The international community has condemned the pseudo-vote.

The European Union, the United States, and Japan declared that the holding of "elections" in the occupied parts of eastern Ukraine was a violation of the Minsk agreements.

The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry stressed that the fake "elections" in Donbas would not be recognized either by Ukraine or by the international community.
