Local elections (unknown date)
Elections of the mayor and city council of Sloviansk
Head of the Donetsk Regional State Administration Pavlo Kyrylenko: "Early elections in Slovyansk may be held in the fall of 2022. These elections are not related to the aspect of security guarantees, as is the case with 18 other communities. The Verkhovna Rada has every reason to call elections in Slovyansk in 2022"
The head of the Donetsk Regional State Administration, Pavlo Kirilenko, signed a decree appointing Vadim Lyakh as the head of the Slavyansk city military-civilian administration. This was announced by Vadim Lyakh on his Facebook page.
Mayor of Slavyansk Igor Lyakh: "Local elections in Slavyansk after the introduction of the military-civilian administration can be held in the spring of next year. I personally have been participating in elections since 2002, I was a deputy of the city council of three convocations, I was twice elected to the position of mayor. I will also participate in next election for this position"
The head of the Donetsk Regional State Administration Pavel Kirilenkov: "In Slovyansk, the situation is exclusively political, which does not allow the city to develop, but forces us to live every month on 1/12 of the last year's budget. Therefore, such a decision was made by the President of Ukraine .The next step is to hold elections in Slavyansk"
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky signed a decree on the establishment of a military-civilian administration in Slovyansk. Thus, the powers of the city council and the mayor were prematurely terminated. Until the head of the CAA is appointed, Vadim Lyakh will temporarily perform his duties
Mayor of Sloviansk Vadym Lyakh appealed to the chairman of the Donetsk Regional State Administration Pavel Kirilenko with a request to consider the possibility of re-election of deputies of the city council and temporarily introduce a MCA in the city: "in five months of work, the deputies have not yet adopted the budget, have not elected the secretary of the city council"
