Working meeting of leadership of DPR’s People’s Council with representatives of State Duma of Russia takes place in Republic’s capital
On August 31, a working meeting of a delegation of the “A Just Russia” faction of the 7th State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation with the leadership of the People’s Council of the Donetsk People’s Republic took place in Donetsk. The event was attended by the Speaker of the DPR’s Parliament Vladimir Bidyovka and the Leader of the “A Just Russia” faction Sergey Mironov.
During the meeting, Sergey Mironov stressed that the Donetsk People’s Republic could always rely on the support of the Russian Federation.
ʺI keep publicly saying within the framework of the State Council of Russia, as well as in the presence of the President of Russia and the Chairman of the Government, that we have no other path – integration must take place, we have to recognise the independence of the Republics. Similar experience exists and is exemplified by South Ossetia and Abkhazia. Our President looks further, and I consider a decision on simplified acquisition of citizenship (of the Russian Federation – Ed.) to be absolutely correct.
I know that you, deputies of the DPR’s Parliament, have already laid a legal basis. Such smooth and planned work to ensure legal space of the Donetsk People’s Council should be continued, and you can always rely on our support. Regarding Donbass, in general, – any questions concerning you always find the support of all factions of the State Duma. I hope we will communicate more often, because there are and will be reasons, I have no doubt about it,ʺ the leader of the “A Just Russia” faction said.
The working meeting concluded with the Chairman of the People’s Council Vladimir Bidyovka and Sergey Mironov exchanging memorable gifts.
Also, the Russian parliamentarians visited the Migration Service of the DPR as a part of their visit to the Donetsk People’s Republic, where they talked to its workers and citizens, who expressed a desire to obtain Russian passports.
During an interview with the media, the Chairman of the People’s Council Vladimir Bidyovka summarized the results of the delegation’s visit of a cycle of events in the Donetsk People’s Republic and expressed his confidence in strengthening of cooperation with Russian colleagues.
ʺToday, foreign guests have arrived in the Republic on the anniversary of tragic death of the first Head of the Donetsk People’s Republic Alexander Vladimirovich Zakharchenko. Among them – the delegation of the faction “A Just Russia” led by its Leader Sergey Mironov.
We visited a number of Republic’s iconic places today: a monument to Joseph Kobzon, the unveiling of a bust dedicated to Alexander Zakharchenko. Also, the delegation’s meeting with representatives of the Committees of the People’s Council took place. Of course, the guests did not lose an opportunity to see how the work on the reception of documents for the issuance of Russian passports and obtaining citizenship of the Russian Federation was going. I thank our Russian colleagues for their visit. I am sure that our cooperation will enhance in the future,ʺ the speaker of the DPR’s Parliament summed up.
