"Pushilin's elections". Why in fight for a post of the head of the DPR there is no strong competitor left?


It was supposed that the Donetsk commanders Hodakovsky and Hakimzyanov and also "the national governor" Gubarev will participate in a current elective campaign. But all of them were for various reasons discharged. Residents of Donbass say that Photos don't want to go to vote: Mikhail Tereshchenko / TASS On Sunday in the DPR and LPR there take place elections of heads of the republics and members of national councils. In the self-proclaimed Luhansk Republic a favourite is the acting the head Leonid Pasechnik. And here in the DPR the serious intrigue and strong rivals was expected. And what left as a result? Locals among themselves call elections in the DPR "Denis Pushilin's elections". the 37-year-old native of Makiivka, in the past the head of National council of the DPR, directs the republic the last two months after Alexander Zakharchenko's murder. Having come to his post, Pushilin has replaced members of local election commission at once, and preparation for elections in which as a result there were no strong competitors in the person of Hodakovsky and Gubarev has begun. The Donetsk political scientist Roman Manekin tells about the most high points: Roman Manekin is the Donetsk political scientist "In the beginning one of possible real applicants for the post of the head heading the East battalion and public organization "Patriotic Forces of Donbass" which announced the participation in elections even in advance, Alexander Hodakovsky hasn't been allowed on the territory. Further charges of falsification of signatures have been brought to Pavel Gubarev — "the national governor" of the DPR of 2014, and under the threat of criminal prosecution they with the wife have been forced to leave in the Russian Federation. With the following candidate of communists — Igor Hakimzyanov, the first Minister of Defence of the DPR, cases were even more scandalous, that is in the building where there took place the pre-election congress, explosion has sounded, Hakimzyanov has been wounded, two more participants of this congress have been hard injured and subscription lists have burned down. As a result he hasn't managed to show too in time and as have accused Hakimzyanov of preparation of explosion, he has appeared under the threat of criminal prosecution and, respectively, hasn't decided to apply further for the power". As a result, except Pushilin, in the bulletin almost unknown surnames. Unlike Zakharchenko whom many in the DPR really concerned as to the leader, Pushilin has no such support. A role is played also that he wasn't at war, and that he in the past the "MMM" Sergey Mavrodi's functionary. This lack of alternative of elections pleases nobody, the resident of Donetsk Alexey Beshulya: says — Many don't want to go in general there. — Decadent moods? — Yes not that word. The fifth year of war, you understand. Nothing changes, one some go and only wave flags, go with banners, stage demonstrations. The fiddle while Rome burns is the only thing that can be told. — Pi is a clown that in Donetsk the prices fall and salaries grow. It's so? — the Prices both grew, and grow. The only thing that just a week ago, before elections absolutely have slightly reduced fuel prices, for gasoline and for gas, but all the same they are higher, than in Russia. If earlier for 10 rubles for liter it was higher, then now on
