Borodai resigns as Donetsk People's Republic premier
The prime minister of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic, Aleksandr Borodai, has stepped down of his own accord. Borodai declared the decision himself at a news conference in Donetsk on Thursday.
Borodai said the leader of a structural unit of the Kharkiv-based non-governmental organization Oplot, Aleksandr Zakharchenko, was proposed as his successor.
"I am ceding my post to a local-born man," Borodai said, adding that he would stay in the DNR and continue his career as an adviser to the republic's prime-minister.
Alexander Borodai elected Prime Minister of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic on May 26.
