After a coup in January 2014, the constitutional order and the democratically elected President of Ukraine were eliminated. The new leadership pursued a nationalist, anti-Russian policy, which was directed against the rights of national minorities of Russians in the country – which accounts for at least 10% of the population – and e.g. abolished the Russian language as one of the official languages of the Ukraine. The in the east and south of the Ukraine living Russians organized themselves and took over the power locally, in specific cities and regions, and proclaimed several Russian people's republics who aspired autonomy towards the Ukraine. The republics of Odessa and Kharkov had no long life and perished in the war, which the Ukraine startet, on the republics. Only the People's Republics of Donetsk and Lugansk could withstand, and they joined on 24th of April in 2014 to the Federation of New Russia. On 2nd of November were organized first elections in the republics, and the pro-Russian forces had been the winners.
