08.04.14


Ukrainska Pravda has this morning reproduced the following report/statement allegedly issued by the the committee which "declared" Donetsk a republic on Monday:

The Committee of Patriotic Forces Donbass (CPFD) has decided to reverse its decision to establish a "Donetsk republic."

This was stated in a statement issued by the CPFD press service.

"With regard to the events of the past few days, the CPFD received numerous calls from citizens declaring their opposition to the establishment of the Republic of Donetsk and its announcement of accession to a neighboring country, as well as the holding of a referendum without a proper regulatory framework".

In this regard, the Committee held a meeting of the National Assemby (SiC) in Donetsk on 7 April at which it was decided:

"1. That the decision regarding the establishment of the Republic in Donetsk by quashed.

2. That no referendums will held in the Donetsk region until an appropriate legal framework has been put in place.

3. That declarations about the secession of the Donetsk region from Ukraine be deemed illegal and that the region be kept as part of the independent Ukrainian state".

On Monday separatists occupied buildings of the Donetsk Oblast State Administration and "announced" the creation of so-called Donetsk republic.
