The reaction of separatists on the newly-adapted laws
Leader of self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic [LNR] Igor Plotnitskiy said that the law on special status of Donbas in general corresponds to main positions that were proclaimed of September 1.
Representative of DNR and LNR previously published the position of the two ‘republics’. In particular, ‘prime minister’ of Donetsk Peoples Republic [DNR] Alexander Zakharchenko specified that the ‘republics’ intend not to receive special status, but demand equality.
Plotnitskiy himself earlier claimed t‘to be maximally close to Ukrainian community’ although he didn’t refute necessity of independence of LNR [Luhansk People’s Republic].
