Citizens of the self-proclaimed people’s republics of Donetsk and Lugansk in eastern Ukraine are electing their leaders and MPs. They hope the elections will legitimize their self-proclaimed republics, and that they will be recognized by Kiev.

As soon as the polling stations opened at 8 am on Sunday morning, high voter activity was noted in both the Donetsk and Lugansk regions. After presenting valid, local registration, voters get two ballots: one for the parliamentary election and one to vote for the future leaders of the republics.
