US State Department voices concerns over Malorossiya project

The US State Department has expressed concerns over Donetsk’s initiative to establish a new state called Malorossiya.

"The so-called separatists - and notice I call them "so-called separatists" - want to see a new state. That new state would be in place of Ukraine. That is something that’s certainly an area of concern to us, but I just don’t - beyond that, I don’t want to dignify it with a response," State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert told reporters on Tuesday.

On Tuesday, a project on establishing a new state - Malorossiya (a geographical and historical term referred to most of the territory of present-day Ukraine before 20th century) - that would be Ukraine’s successor and would include a number of its regions was announced at a public meeting in Donetsk. Two documents - a political declaration and a constitutional act - were adopted by voting. According to the project’s initiators, the initiative is geared "to stop the civil war and avoid further casualties."
