DONETSK, May 13 /ITAR-TASS/. Pavel Gubarev, the people’s governor of Ukraine’s eastern Donetsk region, has announced his plans to found his own party, Novorossia, with a headquarters in Donetsk, the local media reported on Tuesday.
“The new political system of the Donetsk People’s Republic should have nothing in common with Ukraine’s previous oligarchic policy,” Gubarev said. “To realize these principles, I, on my own behalf, announce the establishment of a new party, Novorossia [Novorussia is a historical term referring to territory that acceded to the Russian Empire in the 1700s and made part of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, part of the former Soviet Union, in 1922]. Its head office will be located in Donetsk.”
This political association, according to Gubarev, would unite people who had approved themselves as “true patriots and defenders of their motherland.” “A founding congress of the party will soon be held in Donetsk. We will announce our charter, ideology and development strategy at this congress,” he noted.
