"Acting Minister of Foreign Affairs of the LNR" Vladislav Danego: "Poroshenko's signed law on reintegration is a very belated attempt to legalize violence and the use of the army and weapons against the inhabitants of the Donbass. This law will not save Poroshenko and Turchynov from punishment for violating the laws of their own country. And it will not save the country that legitimized the war with the civilian population. The adoption and signing of this law is another round of Kyiv's destructive policy towards the inhabitants of the Donbass".
"Chairman of the People's Council of the DNR" Denis Pushilin: "The law on the reintegration, signed by the Ukrainian president, adopted in violation of the current Ukrainian legislation and international conventions, is only a belated way to legitimize all the violence that is so boldly applied against the inhabitants of the republics".
