Occupation authorities of the "DNR" are preparing various versions of a request to the Russian leadership to provide "assistance" in its war against Ukraine. This was stated by leader of the "republic" Denis Pushilin in Moscow. "In terms of request: we will react according to the situation, everything can happen in different ways, of course, we are preparing different options", - he said, without specifying whether the Kremlin knows about his plans. As previously reported, Pushilin considers his participation in the United Russia congress and granting him membership card of the ruling party in the Russian Federation as another step towards the recognition of the occupied Donbas.
Leader of the so-called "DNR" Denis Pushilin lied in Moscow, telling why there is no complete merger with "brotherly LNR" yet. According to the ringleader, the complete unification of the "DNR" and "LNR" quasi-formations, created in the part of the Donbas occupied by the Russian Federation, has not yet been observed due to the fact that they are supposedly "restrained by the Minsk agreements". "As for full unification, this issue is not being discussed at this stage. Why? Because there are also external obligations", - Pushilin said, having specified that the matter concerned the Minsk agreements. In fact, the Minsk agreements can in no way prevent the unification of the "republics", because they are not mentioned in the document at all. As representative of CADLO from the IDPs in the Trilateral Contact Group Serhiy Harmash stated earlier, there are no even separate CALO and CADO terms in the Minsk agreements, but there is one term – "CADLO". In CADLO as of today, there are "agreements" between Pushilin and leader of the "LNR" Leonid Pasechnik on the unification of the "economic space of the republics", which resulted in the dismantling of "customs posts" on the "border" between the "republics".
During the regime of abolition of the curfew in the occupied territory of the Donetsk oblast from October 1 to December 1, there was an increase in grave and especially grave crimes. This was stated by the so-called "DNR MIA". More than 10 thousand reports of crimes, offenses and incidents were allegedly registered during this period, which is 1602 more than in the same period last year, when the curfew was not suspended. In particular, the occupiers said that the number of thefts, street crimes, facts of infliction of bodily harm of varying severity and deliberate damage to property also increased. Residents of CADO angrily commented on this information on social networks: "And now what? How did we live without it before? Then close everybody inside the houses altogether, and there will be no crime at all!"; - "Fuck you… with your curfew, where are the proofs or statistics with comparisons of "more frequent" cases of crimes?"; "Haven't the so-called bodies tried to really work? Or are they "working" only where it is possible to seize?" Let us remind that the curfew in CADO was suspended weekly from Friday 23.00 to Monday 5.00 in the period from October 1, 2021 to February 1, 2022.
