“The city was in full swing, people were living their lives... But what was missing was some kind of, you know, pessimism in the air.

First Deputy Head of the Russian Presidential Administration Sergei Kiriyenko previously spoke about Peskov’s trip to Lugansk.

According to him, the Russian leader’s press secretary conducted a training program for representatives of the media and press services of the Lugansk and Donetsk people’s republics.

In August, it was reported that the Chairman of the Russian State Duma, Vyacheslav Volodin, visited the Donetsk People's Republic.
