“The intention of the Syrian Arab Republic to recognize the sovereignty and independence of the Lugansk and Donetsk People’s Republics was received by the residents of the Lugansk region with special joy… The recognition of our independence by another country would open new horizons for cooperation on a new world level and would accelerate building relations in many walks of life, in addition to contributing to the mutual development of new markets,” Pasechnik wrote on his Telegram channel.
