Militants have refused from "Malorossia"

  • Militants have refused from Malorossia

Kyiv: The leader of the terrorist group "DNR" Alexander Zakharchenko said that the militants will not call their "united state" Malorossia.

"Already now we can say that the name "Malorossia" will not be because it causes many to be rejected," said the leader of the self-proclaimed "DNR" Zakharchenko.

He added that there are many proposals from people about the name of another self-proclaimed formation, the creation of which the militants recently announced.

On Tuesday, July 18, the Russian-backed leader of the DNR, Alexander Zakharchenko, announced the creation of a new "state" called Little Russia. Representatives of "LNR" declared about non-participation in this project.

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that the leaders of the self-proclaimed republics are the puppets of the Kremlin and the project "Novorossia" was buried.

The US State Department called Zakharchenko's statement about "Malorossia" unworthy of attention. US Senator John McCain believes that Putin is behind the creation of "Malorossia."

In the EU, the statement about "Malorossia" was called provocative rhetoric.
