DONESTSK, May 17, 17:21 /ITAR-TASS/. Donetsk People’s Republic has prepared a query for allowing it to accede Russia.
“Our industry is linked with Russia. If we maintain close economic relations with Russia, the Donetsk People’s Republic economy will develop,” the Donetsk People’s Republic Prime Minister, Alexander Borodai said on Saturday.
“The query will be sent to the Russian Foreign Ministry after the republic’s government is formed. The official draft has been prepared. It is timely to talk about the concrete date for sending the query,” the Donetsk People’s Republic press service told Itar-Tass.
Earlier, on May 12, the Donetsk People’s Republic asked Moscow to consider its accession into Russia.
“We, the people of Donetsk, based on results of the May 11 referendum and the declaration of sovereignty of the Donetsk People’s Republic, declare that from now on DPR is now a sovereign state,” Republic Co-Chairman Denis Pushilin said.
“Given the will of the people of the Donetsk People's Republic, and in order to restore historical justice, we ask Russia to consider the issue of our republic’s accession into the Russian Federation,” he said.
