Donbas reintegration law unties hands of Poroshenko, Ukrainian army on republics' destruction - DPR leader Zakharchenko

DONETSK. March 22 (Interfax-AVN) - The Ukrainian law signed by President Petro Poroshenko regarding the reintegration of Donbas is a law on the destruction of the region's self-proclaimed republics, the leader of one of them said.

"This is the destruction of the DPR and LPR [Donetsk and Luhansk people's republics] in general, the genocide of the people living on this territory, and an attempt to somehow guard oneself from consequences of the decisions made. This law unties the hands of Poroshenko and his military, and this is a violation of the Constitution of Ukraine. But they will not succeed," DPR leader Alexander Zakharchenko told reporters on Thursday.
