    Putin won't accept but the next Russian president will absorb. Land is the most valuable thing in the world. Man has fought wars over land for hundreds of thousands of years. It would be stupid to not want land when people there want to join.

    Peoples are the most valuable thing on earth, land is not.

    In this case there is no contradiction. Russia should get Donbass (both people and the land) while it still can.

    LPR residents want to launch movement for joining Russia

    The main reasons are that the Russian ruble is the main currency in the republic and Russia remains our only trade partner amid expanding economic blockade from Ukraine


    MOSCOW, September 11. /TASS/. Residents of the Prevalsky district in the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) want to start a movement for joining Russia, head of the local administration Vitaly Mikhaylov told Luhansk Inform Center on Friday.

    On Thursday, Mikhaylov attended a meeting at the local branch of the public movement "Peace to Luhansk." "After the meeting, local residents came up to me — an initiative group that wants to launch a movement for joining Russia. And this really has grounds to exist. For the population of the republic, the Russian Federation is a certain guarantor of preventing humanitarian catastrophe toward which current Ukranian authorities are pushing us," he said.

    Mikhaylov noted that "if there is such request from our residents, it cannot be ignored because authorities should hear its people and take their opinion into consideration."

    "The Russian ruble is the main currency in the republic. With expanding economic blockade from Ukraine, Russia remains our only trade partner. I am confident that the majority of republic’s residents will support the initiative of the people from out district," he said.

    The head of local administration stressed that LPR residents "always felt as part of Russia." "If accession to Russia takes place, it will be like returning to homeland for the republic’s population," he concluded.

    Malorossiya project is personal initiative of self-proclaimed republic's leader — Kremlin

    The presidential spokesman stressed that Russia stays committed to the Minsk agreements

    MOSCOW, July 18. /TASS/. The idea of the establishment of a new state Malorossiya is a personal initiative of Alexander Zakharchenko, Head of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday.

    "The statement Zakharchenko made this morning about Malorossiya is his personal initiative. Moscow learnt about it from the press. We stay committed to the Minsk agreements," he stressed.

    Earlier in the day, a project for the establishment of a new state - Malorossiya - 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."

    The neighboring self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) said however it is not taking part in the project. "The LPR was established as an expression of people’s will and we have no right to make such steps without hearing people’s opinion," the press service of LPR Head Igor Plotnitsky said. "The republic thinks it important to stay committed to the Minsk agreements and will continue to demand Ukraine do the same."

    Commenting on this initiative, Russia’s chief negotiator in the Contact Group for settlement of the crisis in eastern Ukraine Boris Gryzlov said it should not be taken as manifestation of real politics. "This initiative doesn’t fit into the Minsk process. I take it merely as an invitation for discussion. This statement has no constitutive effects," he said. "This initiative is rather a part of information warfare than a subject of real politics."

    Глава ДНР Александр Захарченко и и.о. Главы ЛНР Леонид Пасечник подписали сегодня Протокол о намерениях тесного сотрудничества в экономике и создания единого таможенного пространства. Об этом сегодня сообщили в пресс-службе администрации руководителя ДНР.

    The heads of DNR Zaharchenko and LNR Pasechnik sign a protocol of common customs control for both DNR and LNR and for close cooperation in economy.

    This is important step to federal state of Novorussia as common customs is one of four points, which define a federal state and those are: common money, common army, common foreign policy and common customs. All other points are in hands of federal units. They already use common m oney, Russian Rouble, in case of war, army will be under one command chain and they already work together in foreign policy. They could very quickly form a common federal state and elect federal government, in which hands will be those four common sectors.

    The militants in the Donbass have seen the latest Russian-made electronic warfare systems (REB), which again refutes the statements of the occupants that the "civil war" is allegedly taking place in Ukraine.
    "On July 28, in the uncontrolled areas of the mini-UAV SMM, SMM detected four different electronic warfare systems (Leer-3 RB-341B, 1L269 Krasuha-2, RB-109A Bylina and 1 electronic warfare kit with Repellent- 1 ") near Chernukhino (64 km south-west of Lugansk) .MMM for the first time recorded the presence of all four complexes," the report of OSCE observers says.
    At the same time, the mission added that on August 2, the UAV of observers did not record these systems.

    It started as a civil war, but now the rebels don't consider themselves as Ukrainians & in any case I can't think of any civil war not being exploited & intervened in by outsiders. Ukrainian spinners r good at nitpicking & bypassing the underlying substance of issues!

    Putin signs decree easing citizenship rules for residents of certain Ukrainian regions


    The decree will apply to the residents of Ukraine’s Donetsk and Lugansk regions

    MOSCOW, April 24. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree, which makes it possible for residents of certain regions of southeastern Ukraine to obtain Russian citizenship under a simplified procedure. The document has been published on the Kremlin’s website.

    "Individuals permanently residing in certain areas of Ukraine’s Donetsk and Lugansk regions have the right to apply for Russian citizenship under a simplified procedure," the decree reads. According to the document, the decision has been made "in order to protect human rights and freedoms" based on generally accepted international laws.

    The decree points out that residents of certain Ukrainian regions applying for Russian citizenship need to provide a number of documents, including passports. Their applications are to be processed within a period not exceeding three months.

    Russia’s Interior Ministry, Foreign Ministry, Federal Security Service (FSB) and National Guard have been instructed to take measures to ensure the decree’s implementation.

    The decree has entered into force on the day of its publication.

    Simplified citizenship rules

    On March 29, 2019, a new law came into effect in Russia, which mandates the country’s president to determine groups of foreign nationals eligible to obtain Russian citizenship under a simplified procedure.

    According to the citizenship law, those eligible to apply for Russian citizenship under a simplified procedure have neither to receive residence permits nor to continuously reside in Russia for five years.

    Some economy news from Donbass:

    78 New Liaz passenger buses arrived to Donetsk late November. Another 11 will arrive this month to renovate the city's transportation fleet.




    The Southern Mining and Metallurgical Complex paid off debts to the trade unions of Donbass metallurgists in the amount of over 6 million rubles.
    While in country 404 debts to employees of large enterprises are growing exponentially, there are no such debts in the DNR.



    The agriculture sector is growing. Here is an example: Alexander started a pig farm with just a few animals. Now his herd is growing exponentially. He has over 200 pigs and planning to add new facilities.
    While his enterprise is miniscule compared to the large agroholdings in Russia, the agriculture sector in Donbass is growing every year.

    A new law has been passed in Russia facilitating imports from Donbass.
    Here are examples of what is happening recently:

    Yasinovatya is a small town adjacent to Donetsk. It is right next to the front lines with 404 troops. The basis of the city's economy and one of the pillars of the DNR industry - the Yasinovatsky Machine-Building Plant - is emerging from the shadows and gradually but confidently conquering the Russian market. Today, YMZ makes up to 10 roadheaders, the main customer of which is Russia. And since the New Year, YaMZ is preparing to release tunnel boring complexes again. Negotiations on their purchase are underway, our journalists were told at the plant.



    Another city on the border with 404 troops is Gorlovka. Many Russians will soon switch to sausages and other meat products coming from the Gorlovka meat processing plant which is already negotiating supplies. The first regions where raw smoked, boiled and dry-cured products from the DNR should appear will be Crimea, Rostov and Krasnodar regions. Putin personally gave the welcome. By his Decree, which equalized the rights of Donbass and Russian manufacturers.

    Various metallurgical enterprises, food processing, appliance (refrigerator) production and even wine making.
    A lot of them sustained damage during bombardments and some are still operating at a fraction of their capacity.
    The new decree simplifying imports of "Made in Donbass" items into Russia will help a lot.

    So factories damaged by Ukr shelling on a routine basis are putting out complex equipment (in the video we have mine boring vehicles)
    while Ukria can't even produce new tanks without any disruption.   It has been 7 years and Ukria is swirling the toilet bowl it flushed
    itself.   F*cktard is as f*cktard does.

    The video shows the Topaz plant which makes EW equipment. It has been operating since 2014 even though the Ukr MSM claimed
    that it was stripped of equipment by terrorists and shipped to Russia. This is the excrement that Ukrs consume and believe in.
    Some regime bimbo is quoted bewailing the fact that LDNR forces are suppressing drone operations. They have clearly advanced
    in their war capability.

    There is a clip of a refrigerator production line where I can see nice large compressors and the old style rear cooling grid.  
    How I wish I could still buy such fridges.   The "advanced" new ones are all total shit with grossly undersized compressors that work
    all the time and that either whine or vibrate at frequencies that penetrate the whole house.   Making the compressor tiny does
    not save any significant energy like is claimed.   The same work has to be done and that is why they smaller compressors run all
    the time.   Any losses from inertia (spin up) in larger compressors are trivial.   The "green" tag is a scam.   The manufacturers
    want to sell you less for more.   The new models last much less than the older ones for obvious reasons.

    I find this video very interesting, specially regarding military industrial complex. Half a year ago they create Almaz state corporation. I wonder if it is connected with Almaz-Antey in Russia... Interesting is, that Topaz factory, which produce military electronics, was moved deeper inside DNR territory as it was constantly shelled by Ukrainian army. Topaz still produce ELINT and electronic warfare equipment for LDNR army, which worked well against Ukies.


    On the other hand, this documentary mostly shows factories which are near the front line and are still under shelling. They didn't show much about factories deeper behind front lines in towns out of Ukrainian range of artillery. There is safer place for restoration of factories and to build new ones.
