You're reading: Creation of sovereign republic declared in Donetsk

The people who have occupied the building of the Donetsk region's state administration had a meeting on Monday afternoon, in which they voted for a declaration of the sovereignty of the so-called Donetsk People's Republic.

The meeting participants said this declaration will become a
foundation for the creation of the Donetsk People’s Republic, an
Interfax correspondent has reported.

“Only the Supreme Council of the republic can speak on behalf of the
people of the Donetsk People’s Republic. The most important state issues
associated with the development of the republic and its relations with
other countries are put up for public debate and referendum,” the
document says.

Ukrainian television journalists were barred from the meeting.
