Every citizen of Donbass would like the region became a full-fledged subject of the Russian Federation. On Saturday, January 18, told RIA Novosti the Chairman of the National Council of breakaway Donetsk people’s Republic (DPR) Vladimir Bedika.
“Of course, the dream of every inhabitant of Donbass — is that our Republic has become a full-fledged subject of the Russian Federation”, — said Bedika.
He noted that currently prevents this complex geopolitical situation. In addition, the self-proclaimed republics of Donbass more should be done to join Russia, the politician believes. “Including the need to develop the economy of our Republic, not to be freeloaders and to make a contribution to the development of the Russian world”, — he explained.
Part of Donbass is out of control in Kiev as a result of armed conflict. In April 2014, the Ukrainian government began a military operation against the Donetsk and Lugansk national republics, which declared independence from Kiev after the change of the Central government. Ukraine has repeatedly accused Russia of involvement in the fighting. Moscow denies all the accusations, pointing out their unfounded.
