The State Duma considered the entry of Donbass into Russia an irrelevant idea

On September 12, 2019, the head of the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR), Denis Pushilin, while in Moscow at a meeting with representatives of the media and the public, said that the republic wants to become part of Russia (to become a member) as a federal district. In turn, the State Duma of Russia considered Pushilin’s idea “so far irrelevant.” This was reported by the media, a member of the lower house committee on CIS affairs and relations with compatriots, Konstantin Zatulin.

In my opinion, this is still irrelevant, given that we stand on the basis of the Minsk agreements, but they do not provide for this. On the other hand, we are calling for the implementation of the Minsk agreements, but Ukraine does not.

- commented Federal news agency Zatulin all the complexity of the situation.

Zatulin noted that the longer Kiev does not take the right steps, the closer the point of no return of the DPR and LPR to political space of Ukraine. The thing is that residents of the part of Donbass not controlled by Kiev are already used to living without Ukraine. In addition, Kiev does nothing good to improve the lives of residents of the DPR and LPR. Moreover, all these people are constantly under the threat of repression. This indicates that the return of the DPR and LPR to Ukraine seems to be at least problematic.

But, I repeat: this is an attitude on a human level, and from the point of view of formally valid documents, the Russian Federation has come out in Minsk in favor of the Minsk agreements. It can be said that Russia has become a country that is involved in the control and monitoring of these agreements.

- added Zatulin.

Zatulin emphasized that at the official level, Moscow considers the DPR and LPR as an integral part of Ukraine. Naturally, subject to certain and understandable conditions: observance of the special status of the DPR and LPR, the mandatory broad amnesty with a normal and unambiguous interpretation, the preservation of the armed police, and the existence of direct relations with Russia.

    First of all, we must defend our interests and our profit! And our rulers and deputies defend the interests of other states, to the detriment of their people. They can tolerate their own! This is Russian land and Russian people, and has never been Ukraine !!!

    All questions - to those who released the "former fraternal" with such conditions. Ukraine had to wave its handle at least within the pre-Khrushchev borders.
  4. Zatulin! How much did the CIA sell?

    The State Duma, singing Murka, sleeping at meetings and playing computer games at meetings, is in itself irrelevant and needs to be dissolved, as unnecessary ... As for the Donbass, these are historical lands of Russia, not Ukraine, but such as Yavlinsky, it's time to go home to Lviv ... Enough to wipe your pants in the Russia that you hate ...

    Why was the opinion of the people taken into account in Crimea, and the voice of the LPNR was muffled at all officialdom? Three traitor-separatists disfigured the lives of tens of millions, and now the Russian Federation is asking for amnesty for the victims. Is this an indicative lesson for all of us? The State Duma, which considers restoring the integrity of the people to be an "irrelevant idea," should be dissolved.
