240,000 DPR residents sign Donbass peace petition to world leaders

Appeal to the leaders of the Russian Federation, USA and Germany was supported by almost two hundred and forty thousand residents in the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), the DPR People’s Council press-service reported on Tuesday. 

“As of the evening of Feb.28 there were collected 239, 391 signatures,” said the representative of the press-service. 

On 31 January, DPR and LPR People’s Councils Chairmen Denis Pushilin and Vladimir Degtyarenko brought forward a joint petition to Russian President Vladimir Putin, U.S. President Donald Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel asking them to make Ukrainian leadership stop genocide of Donbass residents. 

The campaign to collect signatures in support of the document began in the Republic on the same day. The petition with signature lists will be handed over to the OSCE Special Representative in the Contact Group Martin Sajdik and then to Western and Russian leaders.
