LUHANSK, November 3. /TASS/. The self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic is ready to wait for the recognition of its independence by Russia and hopes for broad economic cooperation with it, the republic’s head, Igor Plotnitsky, said on Monday.
“We are waiting and we’re ready to wait if necessary,” Plotnitsky said.
“Over 80% of the economy is directed to Russia. We can offer much more that other people think. The republic is ready to sell mineral resources, for example coal, valves and electric locomotives,” he said.
“We have Luhansk Cartridge Works. We have much what finds a market in Russia’s territory,” Plotnitsky said.
Commenting on relations with Kiev, Plotnitsky said he was ready for the dialogue. “Despite the disagreements, we remain neighbors. And it is stupid to carry on war with neighbors when we can have political and economic relations.”
At the same time, he said the conflict might aggravate. This depends on “how the president can control units of the National Guard and private military companies”.
Plotnitsky did not rule out reshuffles during the formation of a new government. However, he said citizens’ views would be taken into account.
“The Western countries have what to envy” in light of the elections. “They can hardly see the people freezing for five hours. People know what they vote for,” he said.
