After Ukraine recently announced the list of persona non grata in Ukraine, anyone who read the list suddenly discovered that official Kiev recognizes the existence of the Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics. 

Contrary to the familiar Ukrainian swear words like “separatists” and “terrorists,” such people as Alexander Zakharchenko, Igor Plotnitsky, Alexander Kofman, Vladimir Kononov, and others were mentioned with the names of their current posts.

Here is a Czech humanitarian organization “Person in need,” that exists due to cash infusions form America, which doesn’t recognize DPR and LPR. The sponsors don’t recognize them, but the Czechs do:

“Doctors without Borders,” in the name of which the current Ukrainian propagandist Savik Shuster went to Afghanistan in the ’80’s to howl about the USSR, recognize the LPR. 

This is a letter from the Patriotic Front of Greece:

The Danish Refugee Council wrote to the Minister of Health of the DPR:

The Swiss addressed this message to the head of the LPR, Igor Plotnitsky:

The Norwegian Refugee Council also referred to the “territory of the LPR” in its letter to Plotnitsky:

This is a letter which Plotnitsky received from the international organization, “Save the Children”: 

A famous Kiev Maidanite, Nina Potarskaya, toghether with journalist Irma Krat, once organized a “Women’s Hundred” at the time of the Second Maidan. She hates Russia, DPR, and LPR and such vatniki and colorados like me. But she recognizes the existence of the DPR and the fact that Alexander Kofman is the foreign minister in this state:
