Give us recognition, Ukraine rebel voters demand

A woman leaves a voting booth during the vote in a polling station in Donetsk on November 2, 2014The elections may already have been slammed as a farce by the West but those queuing to cast their ballots in east Ukraine’s rebel polls on Sunday insisted their voices should be heard. Held as fighting rumbled across the conflict zone, the voting has driven a new wedge between Russia and the West, and threatened to plunge Ukraine into further chaos. Kiev and much of the international community have decried the election as window-dressing aimed at legitimising the Russian-backed armed men who seized control of Ukraine’s industrial heartland. Competition at the polls was not exactly fierce, since all the candidates were rebel leaders bent on breaking from Kiev’s grip.
