Pushilin long and floridly explained why previous "premier" Alexander Ananchenko was fired and the entire "government" was dismissed.
"As of today, there is an urgent need, despite the fact that a special operation is underway, and we have not yet reached the "constitutional" borders… there is a need for changes, building a number of changes in the restoration...", - Pushilin said, having added that "a number of regions of the russian federation became patronized" over the occupied territory.
He also said that dismissed Ananchenko would deal with the "public sector of the DNR." And the tasks of the new "government" are "restoration of infrastructure and "integration".
