Mir Luganschine social movement numbers 87,100 supporters

Mir Luganschine (Peace to Lugansk region) social movement has 87,100 members, the Movement’s Executive Committee told Lugansk Media Centre.

The Committee said that the work to involve new supporters would continue in accordance with decisions taken at regional branches conferences.

More than 25,200 supporters were registered in 2016, and some 1800 have joined since the beginning of this year.

Marina Filippova, a member of the movement’s republican executive committee, stated earlier that the number of Mir Luganschine supporters was rising steadily due to the fact that people shared its clear and understandable purposes and goals.

She explained that the main goals of the movement are fighting against fascism and heading towards the Russian World.

"I think there are no people here who support fascism and just few of those who don't want to be a part of the Russian World," Filippova said.

She also highlighted the role of Mir Luganschine nationwide projects in attracting new supporters.

 "We managed to reach all the segments of the population with those projects", she said.

The Won't Forget, Won't Forgive project activists help to memorialize compatriots who died during the war in Donbass.

The Candidates Pool project gives an opportunity to students and young specialists to find a job.

Activists of The Care for Veterans and Volunteer projects help those in need, Filippova said.

Mir Luganschine is the largest social movement in the Republic. It was established prior to elections to LPR People’s Council on 2 November 2014. Mir Luganschine activists enjoyed solid support coming first with 69.42 percent of votes. Mir Luganschine chairman is LPR Head Igor Plotnitskiy.
