The authorities of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) see no need in one more independence referendum, the head of the republic Alexander Zakharchenko said on Monday.
“For the momentб we see no need in a repeated referendum on our independence. We have already proved to all that we want to develop independently from Ukraine. So, I see no sense in holding one more referendum,” Zakharchenko said.
EAD would like to remind its readers that on Apr 16 the DPR leader said that the authorities of the Donetsk People’s republic were ready to hold one more referendum on the republic’s future status. “During his online interview Mr. Putin said that there is no alternative to political settlement in Donbass and that the local population should be given the right to decide on their own who they are going to live with and on what terms. On May 11 2014, we held a referendum, where 90% of 75% of our people voted for independence. We are ready to hold a repeated referendum,” Zakharchenko said.
