Former Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Security Minister Alexander Khodakovsky reported on his Telegram channel, that Russian border guards refused him to return to DPR.
“I should explain why I will not be able to participate in the elections. Last night, when I was coming home from Russia, Russian border guards at the Uspensky border crossing, simply but in polite manner explained to me that they would not let me out and that I should come back to the Russian Federation,” he wrote.
At the same time, according to the former leader of the DPR, he was given the reasons for his detainment but he stated that they were fairly obvious.
“I have no complaints about those who were following the orders, as well as those who ordered it. Now, judging by the sign on the door of the office, in which I had a conversation with them, my status is “not to be allowed out of the country”.
Elections in the separatist regions of Donetsk and Luhansk will be held on November 11.
