Creation of state of Malorossiya is inevitable – Russian lawmaker

The establishment of the new independent state of Malorossiya in Donbass is inevitable since it could help defuse a three-year long military conflict in the region amid Kiev's ongoing military actions, according to Russian lawmaker Leonid Kalashnikov, reports Sputnik.

The creation of Malorossiya would be "possible" and, taking into account the situation in Ukraine, even "inevitable," according to Leonid Kalashnikov, the chairman of Russian State Duma’s Committee for the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).
"Instead of resolving the issue, the [Ukrainian] government tightens the knot and intensifies military actions. People cannot live at war for a long time. Something needs to be done. So, the creation of such a sovereign state could be the solution for the people," Kalashnikov told Sputnik.
The lawmaker pointed out that such a scenario was considered by some Ukrainian regions long ago.
"Donetsk and Lugansk considered this option even before the conflict erupted and the DPR and the LPR [Lugansk People’s Republic] were proclaimed," he said.
At the same time, Kalashnikov suggested that the initiative will not be welcomed by the international community.
