Nearly 230,000 DPR residents have signed the petition to world leaders asking them to force Kiev to stop genocide of Donbass residents, the Republic’s parliament press service reported on Wednesday.

“As of the evening of Feb.27, the petition to the Russian, US and German leaders was signed by 229,778 DPR residents,” said the representative of the press-service.

On 31 January, Denis Pushilin and Vladimir Degtyarenko, the DPR and LPR People’s Councils Chairmen brought forward a joint petition to Vladimir Putin, Russian President, Donald Trump, the U.S. President and to Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor asking them to make Ukraine’s leadership stop the genocide of Donbass residents.

The campaign to collect signatures in support of the document began in the Republic on the same day. The petition with signature lists will be handed over to the OSCE special representative to the Contact Group Martin Sajdik and then to Western and Russian leaders.
