BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:20 P.M.) – Igor Plotnitsky, the leader of the Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) said that a referendum won’t be held in the immediate future.

In a video statement he said “In fact, we will not hold a referendum in the next month. Everything should be done at the proper time, especially in politics.”

The referendum will determine whether or not Lugansk joins Russia.

  1. It was never annexed. It was illegally separated from Russia in 1952 by an illegal direct order from then Soviet Secretary General Nikita Krushev and annexed to the Soviet Socialist Republic of Ukraine, Krushchev’s native land without the consent of the Supreme Soviet. Crimea then rejoined Russia upon the wishes of the overwhelming majority of who voted for that with more than 96% majority.
