The "DNR" propagandist who calls himself "reporter Rudenko" believes that Russia, which distributes Russian passports to the militants in large numbers, should "protect" these "new Russians" using armed means. He wrote this on his social network, commenting on the death of four members of the CADO illegal armed formations.
"You cannot keep thousands of Russian people in trenches and make them "whipping boys" at the same time. Everyone understands this, but tactfully, they try not to talk about it out loud… It constantly sounds like a mantra, "Donbas is an internal problem of Ukraine and an internal conflict". Is that so!? Six hundred thousand citizens of the Russian Federation live in the Donbas, and this figure is growing day by day. So, probably, it is time to start protecting your people!", - he calls on the Russian authorities to escalate the situation on the line of contact.
"Until there is a tough response, people will continue to die", - "reporter Rudenko" is sure.
As previously reported, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree according to which residents of the occupied Donbas, who are citizens of Ukraine, are massively granting Russian citizenship in violation of international law.
