LUGANSK, November 27 (Lugansk Media Centre) - Lugansk People’s Republic Head Leonid Pasechnik said he would answer questions from residents of the Republic and other countries in the course of the live question and answer session that began on Wednesday.
“During the hotline session, I’ll answer questions from residents of our Republic and citizens who live abroad,” Pasechnik said. “I want to hear about the problems that exist in our Republic, the problems that worry citizens. I want them to understand that the authorities are resolving the problems they face.”
Earlier on Wednesday the LPR leader launched the Direct Line Q&A session broadcasted by the GTRK LNR state TV company.
Pasechnik tweeted on November 22 that he would be answering questions from everybody regardless of their location, political views or leaning.
Residents of 19 countries, including 50 towns of the LPR, Ukraine and Russia, forwarded more than 3,745 questions to the LPR head, the organisers said.
More than 60 questions were asked by residents of foreign countries such as Germany (11), Britain (9), Finland (8), Turkey (6) and Ireland (4). Some came from foreign journalists and Russian news agencies.
The organisers said that aside from welfare issues, people take an interest in the prospects for LPR development and Donbass political situation.
Many questions, mostly complaints about Ukrainian authorities and military came from residents of Kiev- controlled parts of Donbass.
Pasechnik’s "Direct Line" in August gathered more than 2,300 questions from residents of 35 Ukrainian settlements.
