Recognition of the DPR by Russia ~ Zakharchenko signs decree status of state border to the contact line in Donbass ~ The status of the border is assigned not to a certain line, but to the Front Line. Which can change !!!
The Head of the Donetsk People's Republic, Alexander Zakharchenko, has assigned, by his decree, the status of the state border to the contact line in Donbass.
This is stated by the press service of the DPR Ministry of State Security (MGB).
Zakharchenko signed the corresponding decree on February 27, but it has become known today.
The document says that individuals are prohibited to cross the border between the DPR and ‘the territory, on which the state authorities of Ukraine temporarily exercise their authority’, outside the control points.
It is specified that due to the adoption of the new norm, ‘actions related to the illegal crossing of the contact line, the organization of illegal exit and entry into the Donetsk People's Republic, will be qualified in accordance with the Penal Code of the DPR’.
The first comments on Zakharchenko's decree have already appeared on the web. In particular, the well-known nationalist-oriented Russian publicist, Yegor Kholmogorov, regards this as another step towards the recognition of the DPR by Russia.
‘Another way to the final separation from Ukraine. At the same time, the status of the border is assigned not to a certain line, but to the Front Line. Which can change. Who does the DPR border? It borders whom it wants to. I hope, in the end, this will all lead to Russia's recognition,’ Kholmogorov wrote on his social network page.
