LUGANSK, October 7. /TASS/. Leading businessmen from the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR), who met for a founding congress of the Lugansk Economic Union public movement on Tuesday, set a task of developing relations with Russia and gaining a foothold on its market.
“It is a union of forces, intellect and energy of all businessmen of our young republic who want to revice its economy, its industrial potential, to creat jobs and ensure normal life for people,” said Zinaida Naidyon, who was elected the union’s chairwoman.
“We must establish closer relations with Russia, to promote on its markets, otherwise we will not be able to provide jobs for all employable people in our republic,” she stressed.
She said that the new association would take part in the political life of the Lugansk People Republic, since, in her words, economics and politics were mutually dependent. “We will nominate energetic people as candidates to the People’s Council /parliament/. No more words, it’s time to begin working,” she added.
