International 'Observers': Moscow - Rostov - Donetsk

Vienna, Austria - International fake observers of the fake elections in the Donbass arrived in Moscow on October 31 and checked into the 5-star Metropol Hotel. They had a late dinner at the hotel restaurant and some of them went for a walk to Red Square:

These "observers" took a morning flight from Moscow to Rostov-on-Don on  November 1 and then travelled by bus from there to the Russian town of Kuybyshevo, right on the Russia-Ukraine border. They entered Ukraine illegally.

At the border, (pro-)Russian extremists put armed escorts into the buses of "observers" and then they crossed the border. None of them passed any official Ukrainian border control.

They arrived in Donetsk and checked in the Ramada Hotel.

On the same day, the "observers" were introduced to the leadership of the terrorist organization "Donetsk People's Republic" and issued with "international observer" cards.

Some of them met with French/Serbian Eurasianist fighters:

On November 2, international "observers" began their work of "legitimizing" illegal, fake elections held by (pro-)Russian extremists. Not all of them did their work in Ukraine, however. Adrienn Szaniszló of the extreme right Jobbik party, for example, stayed in the Rostov region to observe the "elections" there.
