Kiev’s ongoing de-industrialisation to lead Ukraine to impoverishment - LPR representative

LUGANSK, April 26 (Lugansk Media Centre) - The contemporary Ukraine is walking the path of de-industrialisation which might bring about its impoverishment,  Lugansk People’s Republic representative in the Contact Group political subgroup Rodion Miroshnik said at the workshop Donbass People’s Identity Genesis: from the Donetsk - Krivoy Rog Republic to the LPR.

“Today, we see Ukraine’s taking a clear path towards de-industrialisation, which is accepted by the West and the USA; i.e. Ukraine is supposed to become a state with a population of 15 to 20 million who will plough land and grow wheat for themselves and a little bit for Europe,” Miroshnik said.

“Hence, it will exist as a poor state, self-sufficient to feed itself, obeying all the global management commands issued by the West, i.e. Europe and the USA, building the ethnic group while rejecting the Russian roots and striving for complete ban on the search for one’s origin,” he said.

The Donetsk - Krivoy Rog Republic is a political entity proclaimed in the Donetsk and Krivoy Rog areas in February 1918 as an autonomy within Russia. In March 1918, it was included in the Ukrainian Soviet Republic as an autonomy. In April, it was occupied by German troops; the autonomy officially ceased to exist in February 1919.
