Self-proclaimed MPs of “Donetsk People’s Republic” called for their region to become part of Russia as a separate subject, states Ostro with reference to the leaders of DPR.
The source said the referendum is expected to take place 2-4 weeks after illegal "elections", scheduled on October 18, 2015 by local self-proclaimed authorities. The bulletins, which are already printed, will have a sign of a tricolor flag of so-called Donetsk People’s Republic.
The members of election commissions, formed for "local elections", should be involved in the “referendum”.
According to the information from DPR leaders, “local elections” in the territories not controlled by Ukrainian government are scheduled on October 18, but militants are still ironing out the details between the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republic. Hence the “elections” might be rescheduled for November 1.
They want a new independent state and appealed to join the Russian Federation for few times already.
