“Since the law comes into effect the law on militia is cancelled. It coincides with this law to a great extent. Certain things are spelled out in more details. The previous law is twice as little,” he said.
Deinego said the new law will will come into effect on Tuesday when it is signed by the self-proclaimed republic's leader.
The law is approved to avoid confusion. “A decision to adopt the law on police was taken when we decided to create people’s militia in order to avoid inconsistencies in these terms. People’s militia are the armed people, who guard borderlines, - militias,” Deinego said.
