Leader of the "DNR" Denis Pushilin and the so-called "Foreign Minister" Natalia Nikonorova received registration "at the place of stay" in the Leningrad oblast at one common address. This was evidenced by photocopies of documents posted on the rosinform.press website. According to the documents, the "DNR" leader provided himself with a place of residence in Russia at the address: Leningrad oblast, Vyborgsky district, Pervomaiskoye village, 13-A Sovetskaya St., apt. 63. Mercedes, owned by the so-called "Minister of Foreign Affairs of the DNR" Natalia Nikonorova is registered at the same address. Interestingly, the car changed its owner two days after the address certificate in the name of Pushilin was written out. This can serve as an indirect confirmation that Pushilin and Nikonorova registered in the Leningrad oblast at the end of December 2019 together. The media believes that in this way, the "DNR" leaders, who position themselves as patriots of the Donbass, prepare a reserve airfield for themselves a fall-back position - "a nest near the Finnish border".
