Today, at 4 in the morning, according to the fascist, as in the bloody 41, the Ukrainian armed forces committed an act of aggression against the civilian population of the Luhansk People's Republic.
In response to the appeal to the government of Ukraine demanding the immediate withdrawal of all the armed formations on our territory, the Ukrainian armed forces unleashed the bloodshed of the peaceful population of the cities and villages of the Luhansk region.
The leadership of the Lugansk People’s Republic appeals to you with a request to bring peacekeeping troops into the territory of the Lugansk People’s Republic.
The Russian Federation, through its official representatives and the people of fraternal Russia, recognized and supported the holding of a referendum on the creation of an independent republic in the territory of the former Luhansk region, whose residents took advantage of the people’s natural right to self-determination. His results were so impressive and convincing that there was no doubt left - the people made their unequivocal choice.
But the illegitimate, not recognized by the South-East of Ukraine, power in Kiev, which carried out a coup d'etat, is trying to impose its will on us with the help of overt violence. She is conducting a punitive operation against the people of the republic, supported by her western partners. Its troops, both regular and recruited from nationalist volunteers, continue to occupy part of the territory of the Luhansk People's Republic, unleashing outright terror against local residents and threatening the life of the young state. We do not have enough forces to completely expel a foreign aggressor from our land.
Russia has repeatedly demanded to stop the punitive operation against the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics. In response, the nationalist power in Kiev only expands the scale of the aggression, killing civilians and inflicting material damage. All proposals for a peaceful settlement of interstate relations act on her like a red rag on a bull. Creating the appearance of a dialogue, the junta in fact continues to kill, consciously planning the creation of a humanitarian catastrophe.
To prevent a humanitarian catastrophe, planned on behalf of Ukraine by its illegitimate government, can only enter the peacekeeping forces of Russia.
We have no doubt that our brotherly country will, sooner or later, make such a decision. And we hope that it will be accepted sooner than on the territory of the Lugansk People’s Republic a humanitarian catastrophe will break out, artificially created on our territory by the nationalist government of the neighboring state of Ukraine.
Head of the Lugansk People’s Republic VD Bolotov
