Plotnitsky called Donbass a part of Russia

Donbass is a historic part of Russia, said the Head of the LPR Igor Plotnitsky at the forum "The Great Russian Word" in Yalta.
'We are glad that the Crimea has returned to the harbor of Russia. There is no taiga here (in Donbass), but in our vast fields we know for sure that it is an ancient area of a bear habitat. It is well known that "a bear does not give up its taiga", said Plotnitsky.
According to him, the most important task for both Donbass and Ukraine is the struggle for forming the Russian consciousness in children.
'The first thing we asked from Russia as humanitarian aid was not food, but textbooks of Russian history, language, literature,' said the Head of the LPR.
The head of the DPR parliament Dennis Pushilin agreed with him. According to him, the result of the nationalist propaganda in Ukraine is 'the youth who are considering normal to burn people, and then do selfies against their background'.
Plotnitsky said that last year only the Crimea provided about 2 thousand citizens of the Republic of Lugansk with rest.
'However, it should not be only rest, we need joint camps to let children communicate. They have a lot of things to tell each other,' suggested Plotnitsky, adding that the Orthodox Church should also be involved in the educational work.
According to him, in Ukraine there are still many supporters of the Russian world.
'We know that the people there are just intimidated,' said Plotnitsky.
