Secretary of the General Council of United Russia Andrey Turchak declared that the eight-year suffering of the inhabitants of Donbass will end in this four-day referendum on joining the Russian Federation.
“The Rubicon has been passed, and finally eight years of suffering, eight years of hope, they end in this four-day vote,” he said during the broadcast on Channel One.
According to the deputy, earlier to become citizens of Russia and to be in its composition for the inhabitants of the Lugansk and Donetsk People’s Republics was only a ghostly dream, but today it is a certainty.
