Russia will help the Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics (DPR and LPR), all the children and adults there, but it will take years to put everything in order, said Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“You are better than any other of the guys who are now present at this event in Artek (Russian kids camp), you know how many days you need to spend in order to put the entire economy of Donetsk, the entire Donetsk Republic, the Luhansk Republic in order. Therefore, our entire country will help both the LPR and the DPR, we will help your peers and adults who live in these territories," he said during a conversation with participants in the all-Russian competition "Big Change".
The President noted that "months, weeks and years" are ahead in order to put everything in order.
"But we will definitely do it," Putin stressed.
The United States does not recognize the entry of Ukrainian territories into Russia. Such a development will seriously complicate prospects for a diplomatic settlement
