The statement says that the Public Chamber stands for the immediate launch of a referendum on recognition of the Lugansk People’s Republic as a Russian federal subject. Joining the Russian Federation will secure the LPR territory and open up new opportunities for its restoration.

“We consider it more timely than ever to make a strong-willed decision on the immediate launch of a referendum on the territory of the Lugansk People's Republic. We believe the initiative will be fully supported by residents of the Lugansk Region, and joining the Russian Federation will not only become a triumph of historical justice, but will also secure the territory of the LPR, open up new opportunities for our region’s revival and restoration, as well as its return to a full–fledged peaceful life," the statement reads.
