LUGANSK, November 16 /TASS/. Igor Plotnitsky, the head of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LNR), on Saturday described as genocide the Ukrainian president’s decision to impose a socio-economic blockade on certain districts of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions.
“Today’s decree issued by (President Poroshenko) on full economic blockade of the Donbas region is an act of genocide designed to impoverish and destroy our people,” Plotnitsky stressed, adding that the Donbas population had made its choice at elections on November 2. “We are not going to sheer away from our path. We are going to live better than Ukraine for which the power of the oligarchs will turn out to be worse and more destructive than any blockade,” Plotnitsky added.
