Maxim Korolyuk: Republic should develop and we will protect it
On September 7, a plenary meeting of the DPR People’s Council took place in the Government House’s debating chamber. Maxim Korolyuk commented on the parliament’s decisions taken at the meeting.
ʺThe decision of the People’s Council is absolutely legal and I support it. The elections of the Head of the Republic and deputies took place four years ago. We defended our choice with arms. The Republic should develop and we will protect it,ʺ the parliamentarian said.
It should be reminded that the People’s Council adopted a decree on the early termination of the power of the Head of the DPR Alexander Zakharchenko in connection with his death and appointed Denis Pushilin to the post of the Acting Head of the DPR on September 7. According to parliamentarians, the tragic death of the head of the state led to a legal stalemate situation in the Donetsk People’s Republic. In connection with this, the Acting Prosecutor-General of the Donetsk People’s Republic and Senior Counsellor of Justice Andrey Spivak made a submission to the People’s Council on the correction of breaches of the law and necessity to appoint the Acting Head of the Donets People’s Republic.
