DPR and LPR united in Malorossia
Representatives of the DPR, LPR and 19 regions of Ukraine have announced today the creation of the state Malorossia (Little Russia). The constitutional act of the new state was read by the Acting Deputy Chairman of the DPR Council of Ministers, Alexander Timofeev, at the meeting of delegates in Donetsk.
'We, representatives of the former regions of "Ukraine" (excluding the Crimea) declare the establishment of a new state which is the legal successor of "Ukraine". We agree that the new state will be called Malorossia (Little Russia), since the very name "Ukraine" has discredited itself,' the constitutional act says.
According to the document, Donetsk should become the capital of the new state.
Earlier, the Head of the DPR, Alexander Zakharchenko, read to the audience the political declaration which justifies the need to create Malorossia. In particular, it is emphasized that the creation of a new federal state is called upon in order to 'to stop the civil war and to avoid new victims'.
'The state "Ukraine" has shown itself as a failed state and demonstrated the inability to provide its inhabitants with a peaceful and prosperous present and future,' emphasizes one of the points of the political declaration.
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, Nikolaev, Odessa, Sumy, Poltava, Chernigov, Kirovograd regions, Kiev and the Kiev region, as well as the Cherkassy, Rovno, Volyn, Ternopol, Ivano-Frankovsk and Lvov regions.
According to the Constitutional Act of Malorossia, Donetsk should become the capital of the new federal state with broad autonomy of the regions, while Kiev will retain the status of its historical and cultural center. The flag of Malorossia will be the flag of Bogdan Khmelnitsky.
