MOSCOW, February 21. /TASS/. The Kremlin believes virtual rhetoric on the conditions for recognition of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics (DPR, LPR) by Moscow is inappropriate.
"Frankly speaking, the question is inappropriate, because in this situation all kinds of virtual rhetoric are absolutely irrelevant and inapplicable," Russian Presidential Spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, told reporters on Tuesday.
According to the Kremlin spokesman, "so far the situation is that the two unrecognized republics, DPR and LPR, are the territories that have not been recognized by Russia. They have not been recognized by Ukraine, but they are facing a severe blockade on the part of Ukraine." Peskov recalled that DPR and LPR "have been disconnected from social security and banking services." He noted that such conditions "make life of the population in these regions absolutely intolerable."
"On the basis of humanitarian considerations, a well-known decision (by Russian President Vladimir Putin) was made on the documents that have been issued," Peskov noted. Putin earlier signed a decree on recognizing passports and other documents issued in DPR and LPR.
