The head of the People's Republic of Donetsk, Alexander Zakharchenko, announced the decision of the People's Republics of Donetsk and Luhansk (two breakaway territories in the Donbass, Ukraine) to create a new state - Malorossiya (translates as Smaller Russia).

"We, the representatives of the former Ukrainian regions, announce the creation of a new state that will become Ukraine's successor. We agree the new state shall be called Malorossiya, because the name "Ukraine" has discredited itself," the text of the constitutional act presented in Donetsk reads.

It was also said that Malorossiya will be a multinational federal state with broad autonomy. Its official languages are Russian and Malorussian. The flag of the new state is the flag of Bogdan Khmelnitsky. The capital of the new country is Donetsk, whereas Kiev remains a historical and cultural center, without the status of the capital city.
Zakharchenko suggested introducing a state of emergency in Malorossiya for three years to avoid chaos. During this period of time, activities of any parties in the new state will not be allowed. Zakharchenko also urged to conduct investigations into crimes against humanity committed in Odessa, Kiev (during Maidan riots) and in the Donbass.

The founders of Malorossiya stated that the People's Democratic Republic of Donetsk and the People's Republic of Luhansk were the only territories of the former Ukraine, where legitimate power was maintained.

Vice-Prime Minister of the DPR Alexander Timofeyev stated that the future Constitution of Malorossiya provided for the renunciation of the Kiev authorities' debts.

"Renunciation of the Maidan power’ debts. Succession in relation to the pre-Maidan Ukraine," Timofeyev said, reading out the constitutional act of Malorossiya.

We will not join Ukraine, but Ukraine can join Donbass - Zakharchenko interview

KP - translated by Inessa Sinchougova 
On Tuesday, July 18 the establishment of a new state was announced - Malorossia (Little Russia) with its capital in Donetsk.  Just how the decision was made, by whom, and how they see the new country forming, the head of the DPR, Alexander Zakharchenko , has given an interview to KP.
- Alexander, we assume the new initiative has nothing to do with the meeting of Putin and Trump and the creation of a special forum between Russia and the United States, on the "Ukrainian problem"?
- It is an initiative of ordinary people. Because the situation, which has now formed is a dead end. In order to stop the war, in order to save the state, it is necessary that the state reinvent itself as part of the Russian brotherhood, it is necessary to do these things. Otherwise, we will wallow in a great war, and there will be many casualties.
- Which regions have already joined the project?
- There were representatives from 19 regions of Ukraine during decision making. This is the vast majority.
- Where are the borders you see for Little Russia? I mean, I understand that it is the whole of Ukraine?
- Yes, that's right. We were born in one country, this is our land, this land for which our ancestors died, and why do we have to give any of it to some Bandera, a land for which our grandfathers and great-grandfathers fought?
- What will happen to the Minsk Agreement? Because Lugansk and Donetsk are registered, but Little Russia is not.
- If you read carefully the set of conditions we have announced, they are almost all the same as per the Minsk agreement - except the name change. I have said that the Donbass will never in its life join the current Ukraine - but the Ukraine could join the Donbass.
- And who will lead this association?
- That we will have to decide. For now the main thing is to make the necessary steps toward realising this. 
- Will Lugansk and Donetsk finally be united?
- But we were always originally together.
- I mean, united into a single state.
- Well, we actually currently exist as a new state. We have announced the creation of another state, which includes Donetsk and Lugansk but not limited to. Donetsk and Lugansk - these are flagship regions that have every right to call themselves as leading regions.
