MOSCOW, July 8. /TASS/. The authorities of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) are considering supplying local enterprises’ output to the Russian market, head of the DPR leader’s administration Maxim Leshchenko said on Wednesday.
"The administration’s industry department is now preparing documents with possible options of proposals on selling goods manufactured locally. In particular, we discussed the supply of engineering goods," the Donetsk News Agency quoted him as saying.
The sale of goods produced in the DPR will help stimulate the local economy, Leshchenko said, adding the DPR authorities expected this plan to crown with success as Russia "is looking for the possibilities of substituting products supplied by Western countries."
"In this context, representatives of our business want to offer Russia the production of our goods," the head of the DPR leader’s administration said.
"So far, we are just preparing proposals that will be submitted to bourses in Russia. We’ll work precisely with business, which is interested in our output and can readjust for it. We still have to hold negotiations on this issue," he said.
