In the annexed Crimea, the leaders of the so-called DNR and LNR Alexander Zakharchenko and Igor Plotnitsky presented a structure that will deal with "integration of Donbas into the Russian Federation." This is reported by Radio Liberty.

The first meeting of the "committee" was attended by the leaders of LNR and DNR republics Igor Plotnitsky and Alexander Zakharchenko who came to Crimea to celebrate the third anniversary of the annexation of the peninsula by Russian Federation.

During the meeting, coordinator of the "committee" - deputy head of Russian community of Crimea Andrei Kozenko - said that he had prepared a bill to abolish the need for labor patents for "citizens" of DNR and LNR in Russia.

Zakharchenko and Plotnitsky said that they have nothing to do with Ukraine, and the leading partner for the so-called "republics" is the Russian Federation, in which they hope to enter.
