"DPR" militants comment on possible unification with "LPR"
The self-styled Russia-supported authorities of the self-proclaimed "Donetsk People's Republic" ("DPR") and "Luhansk People's Republic" ("LPR") consider the emergence of "Novorossia" an "inevitable process."
"In general, the unification is possible. This requires an optimal moment in time. To my mind, it's much easier and more effective to solve many issues with a single leadership present," Denis Pushylin, the so-called head of the "People's Council" of the "DPR", told Izvestia.
At the same time, the parties note that the hasty formation of "Novorossia" is impossible because of the Minsk agreements.
