“The second plenary meeting of the parliament of the Union of People’s Republics has taken place. The meeting adopted changes to the UPR Constitution. We can now rightly, de jure, call our state Novorossia. This name has been enshrined in the Constitution. Our legislative body is now called the parliament of Novorossia,” he said.
According to him, a number of important laws have been passed without which the legislative body cannot work - the Law “On Parliament” and on the deputy status.
“We all realise very well that two republics are stronger than each one separately. Having launched Novorossia as a project, having adopted the Constitution of the state, we are ready to admit to it all the rest republics of the southeast of Ukraine, possibly, from the west also. In the state of Novorossia all republics will have equal possibilities for the settlement of language and culture issues. They will have the equal voting right.
The parliament session that was held on Monday registered 48 deputies: 25 from the Luhansk and 23 - from the Donetsk People’s Republics. The UPR parliament comprises 60 deputies - 30 representatives from each republic.
On June 24, the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic and Luhansk People’s Republic announced the decision to unite into a confederative state - the Union of People’s Republics.
