Head of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic Ihor Plotnytskiy announced his readiness to hold a referendum on joining Russia in LPR.

“I am planning to introduce for consideration by the people’s council of LPR a decree on the preparation for holding referendum at which people of Luhansk republic will decide whether we remain an independent state or join Russia,” he wrote on his Facebook page.

At that, Plotnytskiy noted that if people speak in favour of joining, then Russia will obtain the right to send its regular army on the territory controlled by LPR.
