Officials installed by Moscow in the regions of Donetsk in eastern Ukraine, as well as Zaporozhye and Kherson in the south, arrived by plane in Moscow on Wednesday evening, according to Russian news agencies. “I am in Moscow”, also announced this Thursday to the Russian news agency Tas the official installed by Russia at the head of the Lugansk region, Leonid Passechnik.
