Three prerequisites for the entry of Donbass into Russia

143

Not so long ago, the former first prime minister of the DPR, Alexander Borodai, announced the imminent entry of the Donetsk and Lugansk republics into Russia. But are there real prerequisites for such a prospect?


Although the Kremlin hastened to refute Borodai's words, it should be admitted that there are certain grounds to talk about the possibility of the DPR and LPR joining our country. There is no denying existing for this historical and ethnocultural foundations: the majority of the population of Donbass is made up of Russian and Russian-speaking people, and the region itself once became part of the Russian Empire as Novorossia, that is, it never belonged to the Little Russian lands.

A significant part of the Donbass during tsarist times was part of the Don Cossack Region, the same situation persisted after the revolution. Only in 1920, part of the territory of the Internal Affairs Directorate was annexed to the Ukrainian SSR.

However, some historical and ethnocultural foundations are not enough; real prerequisites are also needed.

Uncertainty of political status


The first among the three main prerequisites for the entry of Donbass into Russia is the impossibility of solving the problem of its political status in the current situation. Organizing the return of Donbass to Ukraine means pushing the region towards a new escalation of the conflict.

The only situation in which it would be possible to talk about this could take place only if pro-Russian forces came to power in Kiev, but this is now impossible. Returning Donbass to Ukraine in the face of its hostile attitude towards Russia would be an extremely short-sighted step.

Donbass will not survive on its own, and Ukraine will not return it, therefore, the only normal prospect for the region is its entry into the Russian state. You can, of course, imagine the scenario of "buffer republics", eternally unrecognized, like Transnistria, for example, but do not forget that the PMR has no borders with Russia, unlike the DPR and LPR.

Russian citizenship and other steps towards integration


The second important prerequisite is the gradual integration of political and economic structures with Russia. It is no secret that a significant part of the population of the DPR and LPR has already received passports of Russian citizens. Why would Moscow start the process of issuing passports if it did not think about the possibility of including the republics in Russia in the future?


The issuance of Russian passports to residents of the DPR and LPR is going on in droves and says a lot

Today Donetsk and Luhansk students receive Russian-style diplomas, residents of the republics work without obstacles in Russia, the structures of power in the DPR and LPR are increasingly reminiscent of the Russian model of organizing the administrative vertical.

As for the economic component, the region rich in natural resources, even now, after a long-term war, is of great interest, not only from a resource point of view, but also based on its geographical position. Almost the entire Donbass would have united if the DPR and LPR had entered the Russian Federation. Moreover, economically, the republics have long been tied to cooperation with Russia.

However, there is a certain problem here: Donbass is now divided between the republics and Ukraine, and the economic unity of the region is seriously damaged. After all, a significant part of it is under the control of the Ukrainian armed forces.

Amendments to the Constitution and the future of Donbass


The third prerequisite for the entry of Donbass into Russia is of a regulatory nature and is associated with the recent adoption of amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation. Thus, the concept of "compatriots" appeared in the Russian Constitution, and the protection of their interests is proclaimed at the constitutional level.

Formally, of course, it does not directly follow from this amendment that Russia should facilitate the entry into its composition of territories inhabited by Russian and Russian-speaking populations, but in the Donbas, compatriots are under the threat of Ukrainian aggression, that is, there is a situation where they need protection from the Russian state.


The integration of the Donbass republics with Russia is increasingly becoming the main topic of specialized forums and conferences

At one time, Crimea was included in the Russian Federation quite quickly and without any problems. The reunification of the peninsula with Russia took place following the results of a referendum, but no one bothers to hold such a referendum in the DPR and LPR.

Obstacles on the way


Despite the existence of prerequisites, there are undoubted obstacles to the entry of the republics into Russia, and these obstacles are no less weighty. The Kremlin remains the only actor capable of making a decision on the republics joining Russia. So far, Moscow has been pursuing a very cautious policy, continuing to talk about the territorial integrity of Ukraine. But one thing is the official statements of representatives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or the Presidential Administration of the Russian Federation, and quite another thing is real actions, which rather testify in favor of the prospect of entry.

Perhaps, the time has not yet come to state our position on Donbass. But if the Russian government decided to take such a step, its rating would go up, even despite the economic and social problems that are present in the life of our country.

    But if the Russian government decided on such a step, its rating would go up

    I'm afraid not.
    Firstly, a little late. After all, the question will arise if the territories were going to be annexed, why military operations, shelling, the mass death of civilians, and so on and so forth allowed.
    Secondly, after the pension reform, constitutional changes, zeroing and the like, the credit of trust in the government has been largely expended.
    Thirdly, quarantine. Even without him, the integration of Crimea was by no means painless, but he was not ruined by the war. The restoration of the LPR and the DPR will require large investments at times.
    In general, such a step, of course, is possible, but the benefits of it are not at all obvious.

      Although the Kremlin was quick to refute Boroday’s words, it’s worth admitting that there are still certain reasons to talk about the possibility of the DNI and LC becoming part of our country.

            What for? What exactly prevents LDNR from becoming independent states, or, better, one state? What prevents us from concluding an agreement on military and economic cooperation with them as states? And let them annex other territories under their flag that wished to leave the Kievites. What's wrong with that? In ten years this way, in ten years, you can consider joining them, when the whole world gets used to their independence. And today this is not necessary. We can solve all everyday issues with no less efficiency within the framework of interstate cooperation.

      Such a step is simply necessary .. and in the matter of the reunification of our people and territories the question of money should not be raised at all .. But as for the rest, I agree with you, we will not see this authority, the half-measures policy leads to the fact that we are being crushed from all sides , Armenia and Azerbaijan will look at the war, the situation in Belarus is not rosy, the Ukrainian people are making warlike statements .. on all fronts it’s cracking, and zeroed out in the bunker hid and can’t deal with internal problems (Khabarovsk) ..

      I love my friends, because although we have known each other for a thousand years, we are interesting to each other. I love your mother because ... because I love ...

      So it is here. There are probably few benefits and greed, but we are not the "skins" who look at the grief of their compatriots (citizens of one, even the former Fatherland, who turned out to be outside Russia of their own free will) and calculate the preferences of accession.
      This issue should not be decided in the Kremlin, but in a referendum, where the people of Russia will express their opinion on the inclusion of people in Russia who have determined their future with the Russian people. And we should not be interested in the opinion of politicians whose duty is to observe primarily state interests. We must be led by our own conscience, we must be led by our own prudence and compassion.

      You shouldn't be afraid, dear Senior Sailor. On the contrary, the rating of the authorities would have sharply strengthened. The Russian people have an extremely strong idea of ​​annexation, the return of Russian lands back to Russia. Although the Russian people do not go to rallies because of this, their attitude to the Russian land is unequivocal: the Russian lands with the Russian people are our Russian lands, and they will return to their homeland. Not necessarily now and immediately, but be sure to return. In equal measure, as the confidence that no one can and should not offend, let alone destroy the Russian people. Therefore, any message from the authorities to the return of our Russian lands is a deep demand and aspiration of our people.
      Yes, of course, the returned lands will require serious work from us to restore them. Precisely in order to spoil Russia as much as possible during the restoration of Donbass, the Banderlog brutally iron Donbass. But nothing will come of it. Donbass, like Crimea, will return to its homeland, and this will make Russia even stronger and more powerful. Now this, in turn, scares the liberals inside Russia and their patrons in the west. Therefore, the West, the Anglo-Saxons will do everything to prevent Donbass from returning to their homeland, or at least delay it as much as possible and make this return as costly as possible. Hence the articles on the Internet, about the fact that the Donbass does not need to be returned, that it will be extremely costly, that the pension reform and the epidemic have crippled Russia and it does not need to take care of the Russians living abroad, and even more so about the Donbass. Therefore, dear Senior Sailor, with your arguments, you would have looked better at the village of Ponomarev, Gudkov, Yashin, Khodorkovsky and other figures for whom Russia is a training ground for betraying Russia itself and its people.

        So it was necessary to act in 2014 and not to let the "Russian Spring" on the brakes. Now, if we talk about the Russian people living in Ukraine (namely, the South-East), then no one will believe the promises of the Kremlin anymore, people will no longer take to the streets and there will be no such support that was, all the chance is missed. With Donbass too, have you looked at the map? which part is controlled by the Ukrainian side and which part is controlled by the LPR. It turns out that the LDNR has about half of each of the regions (even a little less) and then either liberate the territory to the borders of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions or accept it into Russia within the borders that it has. But again, if the Kremlin wanted to annex Donbass, they would have done it a long time ago, and according to the Minsk agreements, we recognize that this is the territory of Ukraine and under the same agreements we are trying to push this territory back. Passports were distributed for one single purpose - to drag compatriots to Russia so that they could settle down and live here, while Donbass, apparently, is not looking forward to a happy future. The conflict will continue for years, if one of the parties does not start active actions and then you will not envy those who stay there, the old people will die, the youth will leave for Russia, some for Ukraine, people with families, too, if they have the opportunity to try to leave a region where there are no prospects and which is constantly in a state of war .... so everything is very sad, and the prospects for Donbass are not encouraging.

            Subsidized regions of the Russian Federation

            The leader is Dagestan. Compared to 2018, subsidized contributions to the Republic of Dagestan in 2019. grew by about 10% percent. In the second large subsidized region (Yakutia), the level of subsidies increased by about 3 billion rubles.
            In 2019, subsidy contributions were increased for 49 objects of Russia, the number of regions that do not require subsidies is still small.
            What kind of production can be launched in LDNR under the conditions of sanctions (even if coal is sold through shell companies) so that the region is self-sufficient?

    The population of LDNR is about two million. Of these, Russian passports received about 100 thousand. This is 20% including those who have no other choice, i.e. about 20% of the LDNR population want to join Russia, and what will we do with the remaining 80% of the population?

    The fact that LDNR leaders need a roof in the form of Russia is understandable, but the people are somehow not very happy. A referendum on this issue has not yet been held, is it because the result is known?

        this is the entire population of the regions.
        ORDLO is 1/3 of the oblasts. (No more than 2 million in total remains and this is the data of the DPR itself, they themselves can’t calculate for sure)
        More migrants left for Ukraine than for the Russian Federation. Yes, and generally moves across the line of demarcation.
        So the population of Donbass is most of all in Ukraine. ORDLO is certainly not controlled.

Of this number, there are about 931 thousand retirees who do not live there, but have registered to receive their pension. Ukrainian.

            The census is official and in many ways there are many questions.
            The total population in the "DPR" counted 2 million 270 thousand people, the same department of the "LPR" stably "shows" 1.5 million people - only about 3.7 million
            For comparison, according to indirect indicators such as the consumption of drinking water and bread, UN experts estimate the population of uncontrolled parts of Donetsk and Lugansk regions at 2.8 million people. The difference is 900 thousand.
            As thought, you can look at just such a moment-
            The population of the shelled, depopulated on the front line of cities such as Yasinovataya and Dokuchavsk, it turns out, supposedly increased significantly compared with the pre-war level. For Yasinovataya, this is an increase from pre-war 35 thousand to 43.
            Apparently from shelling people multiply faster.
            Retirement is not easy. Demarcation line. They don’t want to let him out because of the virus.
            Yes, and age. But you need to get only on the controlled. For giving out where you do not control anything is absurd.
            However, there are questions who else is positioning themselves. If he is against Ukraine and wants to in the Russian Federation., But he wants a pension here and there. Or categorically chose one side. Or just wants to live outside politics.
            Ukraine gives out pensions. Provides water (on loan because of what problems)
            Any talk about the need to stop this "Charity" remained just talk. Although this is of course the military is called "supply" of the enemy's economy.

    The first among the three main prerequisites for joining Donbass to Russia is the impossibility of solving the problem of its political status in the current situation

    The impossibility of solving it by whom? Ukraine? - Yes. She does not need a rebellious region.
    Russia? - Yes. The economic component of direct costs + additional sanctions from the West against the background of a drop in GDP already by 7% means that the country's economic growth is impossible. And to restore you need money and only money. Elites are not able to change their capital in the West for the sake of joining, because in this case everything they have acquired will simply be blocked / confiscated.
    that a significant part of the population of the DPR and LPR has already received passports of Russian citizens.

    Rave. Of the 3.5 million inhabitants of the LDNR, no more than 200 thousand have received a Russian passport.
    Why would Moscow start the process of issuing passports if it did not think about the possibility of including the republics in Russia in the future?

    exactly then, as given to Ossetia and the PMR. Issuance of passports does not mean a desire to enter
    Thus, the concept of "compatriots" appeared in the Russian Constitution, and the protection of their interests is proclaimed at the constitutional level.

    and the constitution will not allow "Russian Spring" to be drained completely now? She, "Russian Spring", died on the initiative of the authors of the constitution.
    the region rich in natural resources is of great interest even now, after many years of war

    not of any interest. The production facilities have been destroyed, and the reduction of mines is actually in full swing. Donbass coal is a competitor to Kuzbass.
    The reunification of the peninsula with Russia took place following the results of a referendum, but no one bothers to hold such a referendum in the DPR and LPR.

    So what's the deal? It is necessary to remember who did not recommend holding it in 2014
    But if the Russian government decided to take such a step, its rating would go up, even despite the economic and social problems that are present in the life of our country.

    nonsense! What a rating! Little victorious war? The dream of the authorities to get rid of existing sanctions and not get new ones, which will inevitably in this case, as well as an "anchor" for Ukraine on the way to NATO. Having torn off the territory from Ukraine, Russia will give a boost to Ukraine, receives a lot of sanctions and, most importantly, does not receive anything in return, and on the contrary, everything is sharply worsening for the country.
    "Caring for compatriots" is a screen and nothing more, unless compatriots live in the decaying West or the States.

    Formally, of course, it does not directly follow from this amendment that Russia should facilitate the entry into its composition of territories inhabited by Russian and Russian-speaking populations, but in the Donbas, compatriots are under the threat of Ukrainian aggression, that is, there is a situation where they need protection from the Russian state.

    Everything is rather simpler and more prosaic.
    The territory that is now called LDNR is temporarily (I emphasize temporarily) taken under the guardianship of the Russian Federation, until the conditions specified in the Minsk agreements are met.
    Guardianship implies the armed protection of the population from encroachment on their life, health and property.
    After the full, unconditional and irrevocable fulfillment of all conditions, the Russian Federation is considering the issue of granting the population of Lao PDR the right to choose.

    Easier does not happen.

    If the territory, then except for the occupation to own them does not work.

    Economically, foreign policy, from the point of view of defense - all this is now "out of the question." We would have to build and equip hundreds of kilometers of the border, redeploy military units and infrastructure to these territories - all this would be painfully similar to the mistake we made before the Great Patriotic War. These people would have to pay pensions (from what funds?), to treat and teach them, to organize the construction and restoration of houses and infrastructure (and financing this, again, from what funds?) - in an example of the active application of sanctions to everything that works in Crimea.
    The next kicking and shelling will have to be answered by the Russian army and border guards, in Kiev all this will clearly add points to the "war party". Under this sauce, the United States and Co. will immediately carry out all the still stalled sanctions, most likely even more efficiently cutting us off from income and contacts with the EU. That is, the money will become even less.

    In general, at the moment, all this is almost unrealistic, on the verge of an adventure. It should have been done earlier - but very gradually, linking steps towards such integration with the behavior of "Western partners". The guys introduced sanctions - get a referendum on joining. Introduced more - get a batch of military equipment transferred to the militia. Etc . But all this had to be implemented from the start - now the moment is missed, we frankly missed hundreds of slaps in the face of both Ukraine and the West, without taking advantage of the boil.

        Another question is that Ukraine is a little bit not China militarily (and politically, which is more important). The commentator said rightly above. A military solution to the CADLO problem involves the destruction of the 8th Guards Army of the RF Armed Forces. The current Armed Forces of Ukraine from the formulation of such tasks are quite far. Not to mention actually solving this problem.

                    Here you need to understand correctly.
                    1. Should we expect the RF Armed Forces to intervene in the event of a military solution to the problem? With a 90% probability, no. Ukraine cannot afford a military solution for completely different reasons.
                    2. Can Ukraine afford a military solution, not being ready for an escalation of the conflict according to scenario 080808, even if it is 10%? In my opinion, no, for Georgia it did not end well. Russia does not lose anything in the event of the closure of ORDLO, but for Ukraine the new Debaltseve is highly undesirable.

                        I think I was a bit confused.
                        1. The more time passes, the more obvious that neither Donbass, nor even Crimea, can be Ukrainian. Worse, the idea of ​​New Russia is absolutely correct - it is impossible to create a Ukrainian state within the current borders. Yes, in the beginning, on emotions, APU tried to recapture the Donbass. Not repelled, and glory to Ukraine, glory to the heroes.
                        For this reason, any government in Kiev will behave towards Donbass in exactly the same way as Zelensky and Poroshenko - they will not decide anything. Had to would decide if the issue of NATO and the EU was serious, but you should not even dream about that now. So the option of Ukrainian Transnistria / Abkhazia suits everyone.

                        2. The task of the Ukrainian people at this historical stage is, obviously, not the return of something there, but the creation of the Ukrainian state. Now it still does not exist, and the chances of its creation are minimal. Too badly Ukraine separated from the USSR, the overwhelming majority of Ukrainian citizens are not Ukrainians, respectively, for 30 years in a row the country's leadership has been only from anti-Ukrainian figures. Both Crimea and the Donbass within Ukraine can only worsen this situation - the population of these territories does not consider and obviously will never consider themselves Ukrainians.

                        3. When and if some other imaginary Ukraine decides to end it - the option of a major war with Russia should be considered as basic, regardless of its probability. Only a readiness for such a war (including, of course, the return of nuclear status) can guarantee that the problem of the Ordlo will be resolved relatively peacefully. As far as I know, Mr. Zelensky is infinitely far from such a formulation of the question. What is worse, his voters are infinitely far from such a question.

                        I, too, probably otzumburil.My main idea was that the solution (any) Donbass issue will depend not so much on the strength of Ukraine as on the weakness of Russia.
                        Otherwise, I agree with you. I can only add that 2014 brought benefits to Ukraine. I stopped sitting on 2 chairs and helped to finally choose the direction of movement. The path is thorny, of course, especially after 20 years of marking time, but this is better than the swamp in which we were .
                        I would rule out the nuclear status of Ukraine; no one will give them the go-ahead for this for a variety of reasons.

    And for me, the Kremlin has taken the path of a slow but systematic integration of the region into its economic and political realities. When the region begins to live actively like a part of Russia, when the border is even more stable, then this region (if Ukraine does not come to its senses) will probably decide in fact to be recognized as part of Russia. However, this will not be such a serious blow to the economy. They will give autonomy, and the region will gradually continue to integrate further. Here the game is long, and most importantly, purely technically, and Ukraine still has a chance of peace and return (they say he always had), and there will always be a chance to integrate, and peacefully again (after a lot of time then) and, in fact, in fact, has its own region .

    This is impossible. At least five obstacles.
    1. Economic. The likelihood of sanctions for border violations in Europe. They will lead to a drop in living standards and the economy as a whole. This means total sanctions. Like those under which now Iran.
    2. Economic. The need for multi-billion dollar tranches to restore the economy of Donbass. If you attach, then make a showcase out of it. There many factories sawn into metal. There are no such funds in the budget. We're not that rich.
    3. Legal. Russia is the legal successor of the USSR. This means that we inherit not only goodies, but also limitations. If the communists gave it away, they gave it away. There is no need to stir up the past. And then a lot of things will come out there.
    4. Foreign policy. All the republics of the former USSR bordering on us will not understand this. Who is next? Who should throw themselves into their arms - Beijing, Washington or Brussels?
    5. Internal political. While the people look like biathlon. He is sick of his own people, but detached. When they see that external activity is directly related to the lack of money in the family, then the president’s rating will fly out. First they cheer, of course, but then they will see. Prices in the store from Krymnash to this day have more than doubled. After that they will grow tenfold. And here everything rests on the president. Does he need this out?
    We have done the maximum for the republics. The rest is fantasy and illusion.

    Probably, the options for the development of events on the LPNR not only on the Internet are counting on the couch, but also serious people in the Kremlin (and the issue is specifically ventilated). Scenario 08.08.08 - attractive. And there to see who in Odessa will be hanging on the lanterns. And Ukraine is a suitcase without a handle - Western "brothers in mind" do not need it, and we do not need such a "mind" even more so.

    and then they voted a hedgehog to enter the Russian Federation !!!


    as you can see, the question was posed differently, and a certain Putin asked not to hold any referendum at all

    Quote: Corona without virus
    Why were the special forces of the Russian Federation in full combat readiness "sent on vacation" to Crimea so that the referendum in Crimea would take place without problems? Didn't it happen in Lao PDR? AND...?

    so the referendum in the LDNR still took place without the "little green men"


    Well, firstly - the vote was FOR independence from Ukraine - and then there was a request for Donbass to join the Russian Federation - I know firsthand, my relatives live there !!! good
    For the people of Donbass, the Nazis from the western regions of Ukraine are the same as for the inhabitants of Russia the stubborn Bandera = 1: 1

    And secondly, I personally know the laws of the Russian Federation well - and they minus me for every post when I try to speak according to the law = "The law is harsh - but it is the law" (c) wassat And the residents of Donbass wanted to say by their choice - that they are NOT on the way with Ukraine !!! good

    "The population of the LDNR is about two million. Of these, about 100 thousand received Russian passports. This is 20% including those who have no other choice, ie about 20% of the population of the LDNR want to join Russia, and what will we do with the remaining 80% of the population?
    The fact that LDNR leaders need a roof in the form of Russia is understandable, but the people are somehow not very happy. A referendum on this issue has not yet been held, is it because the result is known?
    Will it not turn out that during the day 20% will greet us with flowers, and at night 80% will stick a knife in our backs? "By points. 1. The population of the LPR on 1 is 09 people, the population of the DPR as of October 2019 (census) 1447992 2019 2. 270. The question of the referendum was closed in 939, banned 2. Before applying for a Russian passport, you need to get a republican one. - questions are not for me. Everyone is checked very carefully, which significantly slows down the speed of receipt. Plus, you need to obtain certificates of surname change, divorce, etc. of a local sample. There are also queues, and even not everyone has the opportunity to constantly ask for leave from work So, dear, you don't need to lump everything together. Faster, the numbers will be the other way around, 2014% will be greeted with flowers. Moreover, with such an active "manifestation" of love on the part of Ukraine, there are even those who showed sympathy for her , became its active and opponents.

    I think that the Russian Federation will not accept the LDNR as a member.
    In Ukraine, everything is going to the point that in the next presidential and parliamentary elections, OLE will win, or what will be there at that time. That is, the forces are ready to move towards rapprochement with Russia. It is already under the rule of these forces, and the return of Donbass to Ukraine will take place. And whether these elections will be timely or early - I do not know.
    But the people of Ukraine, voting for Zelensky and the "servant of the people", showed that it was precisely the end of the war, criminal punishments of the previous government and the elimination of Nazi rampant, this is what the people want and what they voted for.
    Another thing is that the Green Prezik and his gang simply brazenly deceived their voters.

    Why is it needed now? At the moment we are satisfied with the Transnistrian-Abkhazian scenario. The buffer territory, which is not ours de jure, but ours de facto. Less stench from all sorts of rotting. With Crimea, this would not have happened due to its extremely important military importance. If the GDP manages to strengthen the economy of the Russian Federation, to cleanse the government of an unreliable element, to optimize the regions, then it will be possible to annex all the former republics in bulk. Yes, they themselves will want it.

    And I imagine the future of Donbass in this way ... Of course, in the very near future, Donetsk and Luhansk regions will hold a referendum and become part of Russia. Next will be Nikolaev, Kherson, Odessa, Kharkov, Dnepropetrovsk and Sumy. The wait is not long. And what is more, everything will be done with decorum and dust-free.

    The defeat of the Russian Empire, which began in February 1917, was painful, since the nationalism of the outskirts was tearing for centuries the established economic, cultural and family ties of peoples integrated into the life of a huge country. For example, it is worth looking at the Russian railways from West to East and from North to South Their colleague did not allow trains from Europe to move along the Russian Railways without replacing wheelsets. This situation persists to this day. And if you look at the Donbass, then there was the densest railway network. When the USSR was created, which included the Ukrainian SSR to Little Russia was attached to the strong-willed decision of the region of Novorossia with a purely Russian population in order for the essentially rural Little Russia to have industry and the working class (proletariat) as a support of Soviet power.

    Continuation - And if it were not for the counterrevolutionary events of 1991-1993, there would be no need to tear apart the country along the administrative borders, but also to experience a lot of difficulties in the implementation of economic, cultural and political ties with all corners of the once large country. Slowly but persistently, Russia is fighting not only for its sovereignty, but is also moving in small steps to return its lands with the economic structure serving it. And this process will be continued by our ancestors not with fire and sword, but with a good soul and cordiality. Motherland never will not reject his sons and daughters!
