"The most important issue is the abolition by the Russian side of the fake elections in Donbas, on October 18 and November 1, respectively; and Ukraine, Germany and France unanimously agree on this issue; and this position was confirmed in New York during the bilateral meetings with the French President and the German Chancellor that an important prerequisite for further peace process is a categorical cancellation of these elections by Russia," Yeliseyev stressed.
