Donetsk, Feb 13 – DAN. Seventy-seven thousand DPR residents have signed the petition to the Russian, US and German leaders, the Republic’s parliament press service told Donetsk News Agency on Monday.

“The signature collection campaign in support of the joint appeal by the DPR and LPR parliaments speakers is ongoing across the Republic. As of 13 February, 77,000 signatures have been collected thanks to DPR deputies outreach and Donbass people’s wish to stop the war,” the press service said.

On 31 January, DPR and LPR People’s Councils chairmen Denis Pushilin and Vladimir Degtyarenko brought forward a joint petition to Russian President Vladimir Putin, U.S. President Donald Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel asking them to make Ukrainian leadership stop the Donbass genocide. The petition with signature lists will be handed over to OSCE special representative in the Contact Group Martin Sajdik and later on to western and Russian leaders.*jk
