The Kremlin has set up a committee to unify the so-called "regulatory and legal framework" of the "DNR" and "LNR" with the aim of uniting them. Alexander Khodakovsky, the creator of the terrorist Vostok Battalion, reported this on his social network pages.
"My position on the issue of uniting the LDNR into a single whole is known - I think that the situation in which the republics have existed all these years is abnormal. When you talk about this topic, you hear arguments from the category of "against" something like this: it is technically difficult, and most importantly, the elites are not ready to coexist together. The Luhansk people fear that the Donetsk people will hog the blanket, the Donetsk people fear that they will be forced to share power… The position, to put it mildly, is not constructive at all. Who are the elites? As for "technology", all these are excuses", - he criticized the parallel existence of two "fraternal republics".
According to Khodakovsky, the Kremlin has begun to resolve the issue of uniting the two parts of the Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts not controlled by Ukraine into a still undefined general formation.
"To my satisfaction, somewhere "THERE", they thought about the prospect of our existence in the form of fragments of territories and established a committee for the mutual integration of the two republics. The situation with Ukraine is not yet clear - the committee is working on the unification of the regulatory and legal framework, set the scene, so to speak", - he writes.
"The unpreparedness of the "elites" affects - no one provides open resistance in order not to acquire accusations of sabotage, but there is almost no support in the work from the top government officials. But the first step is always the hardest. With the exception of a small number of those who have adapted, the overwhelming majority of the population of both territories is completely in favor of unification. Who knows, maybe after the abolition of customs and different powers inside, a miracle will happen on the border with Russia?", - the pro-Russian militant notes.
As previously reported, leader of the "DNR" Pushilin stated that the time for the economies of the "LNR" and "DNR" to unite had come.
