State Duma of the Russian Federation will consider the position of Donetsk and Luhansk regions within further relations with Ukraine.
Leonid Slutskiy, Chairman of the State Duma Committee on the Commonwealth of Independent States states this, RIA Novosti reports.
According to him, State Duma considers preliminary outcome of the “referendums” which were held yesterday in the east of Ukraine, as completely predictable. In addition, Slutskiy claimed that today’s absolute priority is immediate “stop of bloodshed and non-allowance of humanitarian catastrophe.”
Kremlin states, they have closely observed the preparation and holding the referendums in Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine and respect the will of the population. Now Moscow expects “practical implementation of referendums’ outcome.”
Pro-Russian separatist leaders said more than 70 percent of the electorate in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions voted in the referendum, about 90 percent of them voted in favor.
Meanwhile, the sociologists claims the vast majority of Donetsk and Luhansk region inhabitants have ignored the so-called "referendum" thus they didn't supported the insurgents.
