The "DNR" leader Alexander Zakharchenko has once again stated that the "republic" was heading for a comprehensive strengthening of relations with Russia. He said this at the congress of the so-called "Donetsk Republic" social movement.
"We are heading for strengthening our independence and reaching out to fraternal Russia…. We will unite with Russia into an alliance, into a unified military-political, economic and cultural space. The common future with Russia is our firm choice", - the head of the occupation administration stated.
As previously reported, the Russian Federation declares in word non-recognition of the "republics", providing military and technical support to the occupied territories through the shadow schemes. The signature of President Putin is under the Minsk agreements, which, first of all, provide for the restoration of Ukraine's territorial integrity by providing the temporarily occupied territories of Donbass with the status of "districts with a special order of local self-government". Under all the documents signed in Minsk, there are signatures, including of the puppet leader of the "DNR" Alexander Zakharchenko. Such concepts like the "DNR" or "LNR", as well as the names of any positions of "heads of republics", do not appear in the Minsk documents at all.
