Donbass Republics wouldn’t have survived without Russian assistance - LPR Head

Read in Russian

LUGANSK, December 27 (Lugansk Media Centre) - The Donbass Republics would not have survived without Russia’s assistance, Lugansk People’s Republic Head Leonid Pasechnik said in an interview to the Lugansk Media Centre.

“For us, it (Russian assistance) is crucial. It’s not only the relief supplies that “white Kamaz trucks” deliver to the Republic,” Pasechnik said. “Today, it includes thousands of events taking place as part of the integration process, such as document recognition and the simplified passport procedure for Donbass residents.”

Unlike Ukraine, Russia has been consistent in its efforts to help Donbass residents keep their democratic rights and freedoms, he said.

“Russian assistance has been crucial to our survival not mentioning our Republic’s economic development and rebuilding,” the LPR Head said.
