On Friday 19, 2016, the participants of the round table on the topic “Life of the Republic: socio-political and socio-economic aspects” discussed the implementation of Minsk agreements by Ukraine and residents application of the LPR to the UN Security Council.
The issues related to state-building of the Luhansk People’s Republic and the organization of the preliminary public voting, possibility of cooperation between the Luhansk People’s Republic, Donetsk People’s Republic, the Republic of South Ossetia and Republic of Abkhazia and ways of development of the People’s Republic in the future were also discussed.
The development potential of the DPR and LPR are much higher than in Ukraine. The Chairman of the DPR People’s Council Denis Pushilin announced it today during the international round table.
“Inspite of what is happening, I am optimistic. Our Republics have much greater potential now as in democratic principles, and in the familiarity between the people and government.
In addition, the lack of oligarchs is important, that gives us huge advantages and independence. They do not have it in Ukraine. There are the decline of economy, corruption which has only grown and, of course, President-oligarch is in power, which is the most vulnerable link. It is easy to manipulate him because his capital is outside the Ukraine, even a hint of any sanctions or restrictions make him to be obedient and do those things that are harmful to Ukraine, and first of all for its citizens,” Denis Pushilin said.
According to the Chairman of the Parliament of South Ossetia Republic Anatoly Bibilov, Ukraine pursues policy of state terrorism.
“Kiev pursues the same policy of state terrorism against Donbass, which previously Tbilisi pursued against Abkhazia and South Ossetia. In fact, it is quite the correct term, which at one time related to the Republic of Georgia in respect to Abkhazia, South Ossetia. In principle, it is not new, and the scheme under which Ukraine acts today, I am sure, orchestrated in the same place,” Anatoly Bibilov said.
The Chairman of the Parliament of South Ossetia Republic emphasized that there are not alternatives to the Minsk agreements. “I am sure that they understand it in Ukraine, and the OSCE understands it too,” he said.
