“Donetsk and Luhansk need our support urgently and we will do our best to ensure it,” Sanakoyev said. “Considering a difficult situation in the republics, we have taken great responsibility in approaching these issues as we know firsthand what it means to make plans amid a war.”
South Ossetia recognized the DPR and LPR independence in June.
On November 11 Tibilov said that he instructed the Foreign Ministry to establish diplomatic relations with the self-proclaimed republics in Ukraine’s war-torn east.
South Ossetia declared itself independent from Georgia in 2008 after Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili had unleashed an offensive against that breakaway region.
