“A return to Ukraine for the LPR? It’s niet, unless”
“We have no option but to go to Russia, and we will not go anywhere else, and we will not be going back anywhere”
Lugansk. The return to Russia is the only possible option for the self-proclaimed Lugansk Peoples Republic, said the leader of the republic Igor Plotnitsky, who nonetheless specified conditions for a reintegration of the people of Lugansk into Ukraine.
For the head of the self-proclaimed Lugansk Peoples Republic Igor Plotnitsky, a eventual return to Ukraine is not foreseeable at the moment, he said on the air of the Lugansk television channel.
“The chief is responsible for the direction of foreign policy. So listen to what I say. And I’ve always said we have no option but to go to Russia, and we will not go anywhere else, and we will not be going back anywhere,” he said.
Mr Plotnitsky also added that the self-proclaimed People’s Republic of Lugansk could not return to Ukraine in the near future and even specified the reasons.

“Come back where? To the ashes? We do not have that Ukraine that existed before the war. There is no economy, there is no state, there is no national unity for a long time, the historical roots have been cut, everything is lost, the Nazis, the partisans of Bandera. Come back where?” lamented the leader of the republic.
He also stressed that the Minsk agreements provided for the construction of a “new Ukraine,” to which the republic could return only if its people approves of this decision.
