This Sunday, Ukraine is holding parliamentary elections, but some parts of the country won't be voting. The war between government forces and Russian-backed separatists continues in the eastern Donbass region. Areas controlled by the rebels will have no elections at all, while areas near the fighting are struggling to organise the poll. Even in areas of the Donbass where it will be held, there are reports of serious violations of electoral law.
