submitted a draft to the State Duma addressed to the President of the Russian Federation calling for recognizing the independence of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics. Proponents of the initiative are convinced that people living there should be protected from “external threats and the genocidal policy implementation”.

has already said that A Just Russia — Patriots — For Truth faction would support such initiative. LDPR faction leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky Zhirinovsky Vladimir Volfovich Zhirinovsky

has expressed his different opinion. I think that for members of the United Russia faction, who had repeatedly expressed their views, the issue of safety of Russian citizens and compatriots living in LPR and DPR is a matter of concern,” wrote the Chairman of the State Duma Vyacheslav Volodin Volodin Vyacheslav Victorovich Volodin

in his Telegram channel. 

He stressed that the issue that should be considered “is very important and crucial”. 

“In this regard, it would be right to hold discussions on this initiative with leaders of the factions next week. And only then we should consider this issue at the meeting of the Council of the State Duma,” wrote Vyacheslav Volodin. 

He added that the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky “continue to ignore the Minsk Agreements, while NATO aims to occupy Ukraine”. “Such actions could lead to tragedy. We should prevent it,” wrote Vyacheslav Volodin. 

“It is obvious that the solutions aimed at ensuring safety of our citizens and compatriots living in DPR and LPR should be found,” stressed the Chairman of the State Duma.
