The head of the LPR Pasechnik spoke about plans to restore the airport and railway communication with Russia
The Donbass gathered to significantly expand transport links with Russia. The head of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People's Republic (LPR) Leonid Pasechnik, in an interview with TASS, shared his plans to build a railway to the Rostov region, as well as to restore the Luhansk airport.
“Kiev's occupation of the northern part of the territory of our republic cut off the main highways that connected us with Russia. But we have directions that, with relatively small investments, will help restore the railway connection, “Pasechnik said.

The head of the LPR wanted to improve the transport infrastructure of the region to stimulate industrial growth in the region. Pasechnik believes that if this issue is not dealt with in the near future, the industrial growth of Donbass will soon run into a “bottleneck” connecting it with the main sales market – Russia.
In addition, the head of the republic sees this in this a kind of gesture towards the Ukrainian authorities. “This would be a landmark response to Kiev, which first of all in 2014 began to seize and destroy our air harbors both in Donetsk and Lugansk,” he explained.
In addition to restoring transport communications, Pasechnik also said on the imminent recognition in Russia of QR codes of the residents of the self-proclaimed republics vaccinated in Donbass.
