MOSCOW, September 17. /TASS/. Actions of Kiev authorities is pushing the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) out of the process of integration with Ukraine, the republic’s head Igor Plotnitsky told a round table on "Ways of Donbas Integration into Russia" on Thursday.
"Developments underway and Kiev’s attitude to us discourage and push us out of the process of integration with Ukraine," he said.
"Today, we have only one way left - a return to our own family. LPR’s integration into Russia is an objective and most likely inevitable process that meets vital interests and aspirations of the Luhansk region," LuganskInformCentre news agency quoted him as saying.
Citing opinion polls, he said Kiev’s attitude prompted local residents to look to Russia. Last year’s surveys said about 20 to 23% supported accession to Russia, but currently this figure had reached about 60%, Plotnitsky said.
