The Head of LPR Igor Plotnitsky solemnly handed a "republican passport" to American fighter of mixed martial arts Jeff Monson at a concert in Lugansk, dedicated to 221 anniversary of the city founding, said the separatist website "Lugansk information center."

"Today here came a famous person, known not only by virtue of his specific profession, not because of his choice, and known for his good deeds, his good and big heart, his understanding and desire to help us as a Republic", - quoted the site the LPR leader Plotnitsky.

Monson is known for his communist beliefs, love for Russia and its Soviet past. The athlete often started fights with the anthem of the USSR. On September 7, 2014, he entered the ring with the song "Get up, Donbass".
