"LPR" militant leader wants to agree on "elections" with Kyiv
The local "elections" in the self-proclaimed Luhansk People's Republic (LPR) militant organization scheduled for February 21 are likely to be held under the law, which will be agreed in negotiations with Kyiv, the leader of the LPR Igor Plotnitsky said in an interview with RIA news agency.
"I think that the elections will be held according to the law, which will be agreed in the course of compulsory direct negotiations between representatives of the LPR and DPR and Kyiv," Plotnytskiy said.
