DONETSK, November 4. /TASS/. The self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) welcomes Ukraine’s decision to cancel the law on special status of separate districts of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, first deputy prime minister of the DPR Andrey Purgin said Tuesday.
“This is the first honest deed of the Kiev authorities regarding Donbass. The law did not contain anything specific and was intentionally not put into effect,” Purgin told journalists.
“It served as a screen covering Kiev’s aggressive plans, which in practice come down to continuing shelling of peaceful people and economic blockade of Donbass,” he said.
