The self-proclaimed Prime Minister of the occupied Crimea Sergei Aksyonov is looking for opportunities to establish economic cooperation with terrorists of Donbas through the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia. A corresponding statement was made in an interview with the Russian RBC channel.
“The directions are studied at the level of the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia. There is also demand for those commodity groups that are produced in the "DPR", "LPR" and among us as well. As the Head of the federal subject of the Russian Federation, I do not have the authority to do this. Decisions on these issues will be made by the federal center.”
Earlier, within the so-called integration committee "Russia-Donbas", the Head of the terrorist group "DPR" Aleksandr Zakharchenko listed specific areas of cooperation, and also expressed hope for its fruitful results.
“We look forward to close economic cooperation with the Crimea. Crimea needs our coal and metal. Donbas needs food and wines produced in the Crimea. I believe that our cooperation will be fruitful.”
In early March, a “deputy” of State Duma of the Russian Federation Andrei Kozenko, authorized by the Kremlin "to coordinate socio-political and economic interaction with the Donbas republics", announced the intention to supply Wineries of the Russian-annexed Crimea to the territory of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions of Ukraine occupied by pro-Russian militants.
