In a move that will be regarded in the West as pretext for a Russian invasion and annexation, members of the regional legislature in Ukraine’s industrial center of Donetsk have proclaimed the city a People’s Republic. The legislature has called for a referendum on joining the Russian Federation and has asked Vladimir Putin to send a temporary peacekeeping contingent into eastern Ukraine.

Civilians have rallied at the Donetsk Regional city administration building and have hoisted the Russian flag. In addition, demonstrators have taken over the Ukrainian Security Service’s Donetsk department building. Activists described as a “people’s militia” are reportedly in the process of examining the building’s “archives, documents and physical infrastructure,” according to social media.

The Voice of Russia reports activists occupying the Kharkov regional administration are waiting for reinforcements from Donetsk and Lugansk. The activists took control of the building on Sunday. “We are tasked to get organized: be quiet, peaceful and calm and avoid marauding. Only the Ukrainian Eastern Bloc and the Civil Defense of the Region will stay inside, there will be no strangers here,” said activist Yehor Lohvynov, according to Russian state media.
