On Monday the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine approved a decree on 25 October this year the next local elections, which will be re-elected mayors and deputies of regional, city and rural councils. The holding of local elections in the breakaway DND and LNR, which in Kiev is officially called the individual districts of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions (ORDA), is not provided. The vote in these regions, according to the received to the Parliament the document will be possible only if “the end of the temporary occupation and military aggression of Russian Federation against Ukraine”.A draft Executive order on holding in Ukraine local elections, who on Monday must be approved by the Verkhovna Rada, has already been approved by the Committee on the organization of state power, local self-government, regional development and urban planning.Judging by statements of deputies with parliamentary majority party “servant of the people”, transmitted to the relevant Committee of the Council will be approved without changes.Given the continuing decline of trust of Ukrainians to the President himself Zelensky and proclaimed the course on radical updating staff of all authorities, on the eve of the election campaign in “the Servant of the people” decided to tighten the rules for selection of candidates to avoid the nomination of persons able to discredit the ruling party. Authenticated candidates first candidates for the posts of heads of municipal administrations, will be approved personally by the President Zelensky and only after that to obtain support of the party.In addition, the party created the Department of homeland security, who will carry out verification of candidates. Each candidate waits a few cycles of testing, including a polygraph test. “If we make a bet on the candidate, and journalists will become aware of some dark details about it, write about it and we will draw conclusions”— called a few days ago the head of the Donetsk regional organization of “public Servants” Vladlen Nekludov during the opening of party office in Slavyansk.The draft resolution on the vote, approved by the Committee on government organization, local government, regional development and urban planning, noted that the elections of local deputies and mayors in the Crimea and ORDA this year will be held. As follows from the document, the vote in these regions is possible only if “the end of the temporary occupation and military aggression of Russian Federation against Ukraine”.Recall that five years ago — 17 Mar 2015 — Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted the resolution on the definition of individual regions, cities, pic��lcov and villages of Donetsk and Lugansk regions where introduced a special procedure for local self-government. These are not controlled by the Kiev area was recognized as “temporarily occupied”, and since the beginning of the conflict in the Donbass elections under Ukrainian law here never was not carried out.Meanwhile, in may this year, the head of the party “Servant of the people” Alexander Kornienko assured that the elections in ORDO, as well as across the rest of Ukraine, held on 25 October and nothing can stop them. In turn, the head of the office of the President Andrey Ermak has promised to do everything possible to organize a full-fledged campaign in Donetsk and Lugansk.However, within two months in Kiev radically changed their position: the draft law on elections excludes ORDO of the number of regions in which they should be, all the same Andrey Ermak makes it clear that no Ukraine-controlled territory to vote no.”In the area where the elections should not be armed nor aliens nor illegal armed groups, the border should be under the control of the government of Ukraine”,— said the head of the office of the President last Friday.In turn, Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine, first Deputy head of the Ukrainian delegation in the Trilateral contact group (TAG) Alexey Reznikov said that local elections in ORDA will be conducted in accordance with a special law will be extraordinary. However, about any specific date are not talking.According to Mr. Reznikov, to hold local elections in ORDA will be possible only when the Ukrainian authorities will take control of the entire length of the Russian-Ukrainian border in the Donbas and will provide the opportunity for the vote in Donetsk and Luhansk in accordance with national legislation.”If you carefully read the text of complex of measures on implementation of the Minsk agreements, it said that the political settlement will be elections in certain districts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions and they will be governed by a separate law. There is a binding law on elections to the law on local self-government in ORDO,”— explained his vision of the situation Mr. Reznikov in interview to Agency “Interfax-Ukraine”.Ukrainian delegation in TKG on June 25 unveiled its plan for preparations for local elections in the Donbass, in which the main terms of their conduct called “the universal de-escalation, disarmament of illegal formations, the output from ORDO foreign citizens and military equipment”.”Over a polling station should be the Ukrainian flag, should be allowed the Ukrainian media, Ukrainian political forces. The Central election Commission of Ukraine should take them there��s”— explained the conditions for the elections in ORDA Secretary of the national security Council and defense of Ukraine Alexey Danilov in an interview with “Ukrainian truth”.”We are ready to face threats from cyberspace, which can be expected will come from our Northern neighbor. It is not only cyber attacks, but also attempts to manipulate public opinion, the proliferation of fakes to the deteriorating socio-political situation in the country and discredit Ukraine in the international arena”,— said Sergey Demediuk at the meeting of the National focal point of cybersecurity.Matthew Shimanov, Kiev
