The so-called integration committee "Russia-Donbas" was created in the annexed Crimea in the Livadia Palace, according to the Kremlin-controlled media.
"I will not reveal any secret, if I say that Russia provides substantial all-round support to our fraternal republics. It is absolutely obvious that there is a need for public coordination of the numerous sustainable humanitarian ties between Donbas and Russia. To carry out this work, we are creating a permanent integration committee "Russia - Donbas",” a State Duma deputy Andrei Kozenko said.
The first meeting of the committee was attended by State Duma deputy Andrei Kozenko, Chairperson of the so-called "State Council of the Crimea" Vladimir Konstantinov, Head of the "DPR" Aleksandr Zakharchenko, Head of the "LPR" Igor Plotnitsky, members of the Federation Council of Russia, as well as representatives of a number of RF subjects implementing joint projects with the Donbas militants (Rostov, Kursk, Arkhangelsk, Bryansk, Sverdlovsk, Moscow, Belgorod and Moscow).
Reportedly, Aleksandr Zakharchenko also expects the supplies of Crimean fruits and vegetables to the Donbas.
