The creation of a new state on the territory of the breakaway Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics is inevitable, because their inhabitants it could become a way out of the war. This opinion on Tuesday, July 18, announced the head of the Duma Committee on CIS Affairs Leonid Kalashnikov, reports RIA Novosti.
“The creation of such a state is possible and probably even inevitable, judging by what is happening in Ukraine. The government, instead of to solve the issue, tighter and tighter draws the noose of the fighting, and the people can not always live in the war — need something to do,” he said.
Kalashnikov noted that the process for the formation of the new state began long ago, as “this option for themselves and the Donbass, and Lugansk discussed earlier in Kharkiv, before the fighting, before the creation of the DNI and the LC.”
“I think the population will take it positively, but the international community — the negative and someone will look at it through his fingers, will understand, but won’t approve,” he added. Thus, in his opinion, as to the formation of Ukraine’s positive.
About creating little earlier on July 18, announced the head of the DND Alexander Zakharchenko. He explained that the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk people’s Republic “remains the sole territory of Ukraine, excluding the Crimea, which preserved the legitimate authority”. According to him, in the newly formed state for three years will be introduced a state of emergency, “to avoid chaos”.
