The leadership of the so-called Donetsk People’s Republic terrorist organization (DPR) is preparing the referendum on "accession to the Russian Federation as its separate subject," a source close to the leadership of the republic told Ukrainian news Web portal OstroV on Wednesday.

According to the source, the referendum is expected to be held in two-four weeks after the "local elections," which are scheduled for October 18.

It is noted that the questionnaires have already been printed "in the tricolor design." It is expected that the referendum will be carried out with the same electoral commissions, which are now formed for the "local elections."

As UNIAN reported earlier, the militants from the DPR said they did not recognize the law on local elections, signed by Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on August 6.
