LUHANSK, October 31. /TASS/. Prospects are unlikely for federation with Ukraine, says head of the self-proclaimed eastern region Luhansk People’s Republic Igor Plotnitsky.

“Federation with Ukraine is hardly probable. Ukraine refused to deal with its people and stopped payments which should have been done in June, July and August," he said. "This money was spent on what they describe as an anti-terrorist operation.”

Luhansk republic was set to partner with the East, he said, urging the European Union “not to hamper” the republic in going its own way.

Asked about a response which he expected from the EU after the territory votes on November 2 to elect its leader and legislators, he said he wished for simple things: honesty and fairness.

“I ask not to impede us as we do not need your aid," Plotnitsky said. "We have been feeding (Ukraine's capital) Kiev for 23 years. It is time to feed ourselves and we will be able to do so."
