Donetsk, Nov 2 - DAN. The Donetsk People’s Republic territorial integrity should be restored on a timely historical date with minimal losses, DPR Head Alexander Zakharchenko said in the course of an online conference with residents of DPR and Ukraine.

“To restore the territorial integrity of our Republic, certain circumstances should come up, international ones in the first place, but not only these. We have no moral right to take our towns and then withdraw from them, because the terror against our citizens on the occupied territories will increase several-fold. We have to choose the historical moment to make sure our comeback is irreversible, with minimal losses,” Zakharchenko said replying to a question from an Artyomovsk resident.

Zakharchenko is answering questions at the online conference marking an anniversary of the DPR 2014 election. DPR residents living in Kiev-held areas as well as residents of Ukraine are welcome to ask questions. The DPR leader’s answers are published on глава.рус website. *jk
