DONETSK, May 17 /ITAR-TASS/. The Security Council of Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) has banned any special events without proper coordination, DPR Co-Chairman Denis Pushilin has said.
“Due to spreading information on alleged violations and other actions by activists of the Donetsk People’s Republic and due to the increasing presence of the Right Sector supporters in our territory, the DPR Security Council took Resolution №1 ‘On Measures To Prevent Unauthorised Actions in the DPR Territory and Means to Realise Them’,” Pushilin said on Saturday.
“In order to prevent unauthorised actions in Donetsk special operations and special events should be coordinated with the DPR Security Council,” he said.
Rapid reaction groups are created in Donetsk from May 17 to patrol streets and roads jointly with interior forces and traffic police, Pushilin said.
“The Security Council will give mandates to groups’ leaders. The mandate invests with extraordinary powers and gives the right to take binding decisions,” he said.
“Groups, which conduct special operations without the Security Council mandate, are recognised as looters. They are disarmed and arrested, and neutralised in case of resistance,” Pushilin said.
The DPR Security Councils bans wearing balaklavas, headscarves and other clothes that cover the face. "Faces are banned to cover in public places," DPR Co-Chairman said.
