The leader of the so-called Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Alexander Zakharchenko claimed about the creation of the new state Malorossiya.
According to him, ‘Donetsk will be the capital of Malorossiya and Kyiv remains as the historical and cultural center without the status of the capital city’. LNR will also join the pseudo-formation. The LPR militants denied participation in Malorossiya creation.
Zakharchenko also added that the state of emergency should be implemented in the state for three years. He also noted that the situation in Donbas achieved the stalemate and ‘such knot is tied that is impossible to cut’.
