Vladimir Bidyovka: Residents of Donbass reaffirm their choice they made in May 2014
The Chairman of the DPR’s People’s Council Vladimir Bidyovka said in an interview to RIA Novosti that the residents of Donbass would love to see the region to become a full-fledged subject of the Russian Federation, but this was hampered by a difficult international situation.
ʺThe residents of Donbass – of the Donetsk People’s Republic, and I am sure, as well as of the Lugansk People’s Republic – reaffirm their choice they made in May 2014, which is aimed at developing cooperation with Russia in every possible way. Of course, the dream of every resident of Donbass is for our Republic to become a full-fledged subject of the Russian Federation, but we understand the difficult international situation, we understand the geopolitical situation, we understand that there is still a lot to do. In particular, it is necessary to develop the economy of our Republic so as not to be hangers-on, but to make our own contribution to the development of the Russian world,ʺ the parliamentarian speaker of the DPR said during his visit to Crimea.
It should be reminded that, on January 18, a delegation of the Donetsk People’s Republic participated in celebrations dedicated to the 336th anniversary of the Pereyaslav Council, which took place in Simferopol, the Republic of Crimea.
