Such a decision was proposed by the ‘MPs’ of the so-called “People’s Council of the DPR” in return to the offer of the leader of the group, Denis Pushilin.

“The establishment of the Russian language as the state language will help increase and enrich the spiritual culture of the state, strengthen interstate relations. In modern realities, when establishing the status of the DPR, it is necessary to take into account the intensity of integration processes between the DPR and the Russian Federation,” - these were the words of the representative of Pushilin, as quoted by the local sources.

The Russian language became the only "state language" in the self-styled "DPR".
