The lawmakers unanimously supported the address of the Republican Council of the Donetsk People’s Republic.
Earlier, the deputies of the Donetsk regional council proclaimed the state sovereignty of the Donetsk People’s Republic. The corresponding bill was read at the council’s session.
“The territory of the republic within the recognized borders is indivisible and inviolable,” the council said. The legislators also passed a decision on holding a referendum on whether or not the region should join the Russian Federation. It will be held no later than May 11.
In the meantime, a Russian tricolor that was hoisted on a mast in front of the building Sunday has been replaced with a larger one.
Mass meetings in support of Ukraine’s transformation into a federation were held under Russian flags in Kharkiv, Luhansk and Donetsk Sunday.
The Russian tricolor standard was installed on the building of the Kharkiv Region administration Monday. Prior to the action, the demonstrators removed the Ukrainian national flag from the roof.
March 1, 2014, Russia’s Federation Council gave its consent to the president for using the armed forces on the territory of Ukraine. The relevant decision was unanimously adopted by the upper house of Russian parliament at an extraordinary session. Earlier, Vladimir Putin submitted to the Federation Council an address on using the armed forces of Russia on the territory of Ukraine until the normalization of the socio-political situation in that country. This initiative was proposed with regard to a plea by Ukraine’s legitimate president Viktor Yanukovych.
Later the Ukrainian leader said that the address to Vladimir Putin regarding the use of armed forces was triggered by the bout of armed delinquency in Ukraine. “I’ve done it for a reason, because I became target of the criminals. Armed gangs started to cruise around the country. In particular, they pursued me on the territory of Ukraine,” he said.
