Two independence-seeking regions in eastern Ukraine held "presidential and parliamentary elections" on Sunday amid criticism from Kiev and the West.

In the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic, 350 polling stations out of 364 were open, said Roman Lyagin, head of the Central Election Commission.

"All the members of the commission are at their designated stations. The turnout is significant. People have lined up at the polling stations," RIA Novosti news agency quoted him as saying.
