Alexander Zakharchenko announces creation of new state

Today, on July 18, the capital of the Donetsk People's Republic held a historic event - the signing of a political declaration on the creation of a new state, which will become the legal successor of 'Ukraine'. The new state formation will consist of 19 regions of the former Ukraine and be called Malorossiya with the center of the new state in Donetsk. Kiev remains a historical and cultural center without the status of the capital city.

"All of us here are going to talk about the future. We propose a plan for the reintegration of the country through the law and the Constitution. We must build a new country in which the concepts of conscience and honour are not forgotten. We offer the citizens of Ukraine a peaceful way out of the difficult situation, without war. This is our last offer not only to the Ukrainians, but also to all countries that supported the civil war in Donbass. I am convinced that we will do everything possible and impossible," said the Head of the DPR, Alexander Zakharchenko.

The event was attended by the Head of the DPR Alexander Zakharchenko, the Adviser to the Head Zakhar Prilepin, the Deputy Chairman of the Council of Ministers, the Minister of Inland Revenue and of the Republic Alexander Timofeyev, as well as representatives of most of the regions formerly part of Ukraine.

All the present delegates voted in open voting unanimously for signing the political declaration on the creation of Malorossiya with the capital in Donetsk.

"Malorossiya is a federal state with wide autonomy of the regions. The right of regional languages is guaranteed to be preserved, the flag of Bogdan Khmelnitsky is recognized as the national flag," Alexander Timofeyev cited the constitutional act.

"The state "Ukraine" showed itself as a failed state and demonstrated the inability to provide its inhabitants with a peaceful and prosperous present and future," one of the points of the political declaration emphasizes.

Both documents were unanimously approved by the delegates. Along with representatives of Donbass, the creation of the new state was supported by representatives of the Kharkov, Dnepropetrovsk, Zaporozhye, Kherson, Nikolayev, Odessa, Sumy, Poltava, Chernigov, Kirovograd regions, Kiev and the Kiev region, Cherkassy, Rovno, Volyn, Ternopol, Ivano-Frankovsk, and Lvov regions.
