The Federal State of Novorossiya, usually simplified to Novorossiya or New Russia, was a Union of the People's republics of Luhansk and Donetsk.

Novorossiya only has little recognition, being recognized by only very few countries, some of which have limited recognition themselves. Ukraine classified the region as terrorists, and refuses to recognize them as a government.

History

Formation

The New Russia Party, founded on 13 May in Donetsk, Ukraine declared on its first congress of 22 May 2014 the formation of a new self-declared state named 'Novorossiya', inspired by the historical region of the Russian Empire that carried that name. The congress was attended by separatist officials of the Donetsk People's Republic, Donbass People's Militia as well as by the Donetsk Republic leader Pavel Gubarev, ultranationalist/Stalinist writer Alexander Prokhanov, nationalist bolshevist political scientist and Eurasia Party leader Aleksandr Dugin, and Valery Korovin. According to Gubarev the state would include Kharkiv, Kherson, Dnipropetrovsk, Mykolaiv, Odessa and Zaporizhia. Two days later, the self-appointed 'Prime Minister' of Donetsk Alexander Borodai and Luhansk "head of the Republic" Aleksey Karyakin signed a document behind closed doors formalizing their merger into the new confederation.

In an interview on 31 May, Denis Pushilin, then acting as head of state of the Donetsk People's Republic, stated that Novorossiya currently existed as a union of people's republics, but cooperation could be deepened if more territories were to join. On 24 June, the two People's Republics proclaimed their accession to the union of people's republics, and at the second plenum of the new Parliament of Novorossiya on 15 July, the confederation adopted the official name of Novorossiya. Since the 2 November 2014 Donbass parliamentary elections the Parliament did not gather anymore.

Military

The United Armed Forces of Novorossiya were composed of the Donbass People's Militia, and the LPR's People's Militia (formerly known as Army of the South-East).

The militias of the Donetsk People's Republic and Luhansk People's Republic, merged into one force on 16 September 2014, forming the "United Armed Forces of Novorossiya".

It is regarded as a terrorist group by the Ukrainian government, and was accused in the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 on 17 July 2014.

International recognition

Recognition of Novorossiya as a state has been very limited, only being recognized by Russia as a legitimate state. Other nations that recognize Novorossiya usually only have limited recognition themselves, like South Ossetia

Role in European Victory Mark II

Novorossiya's role in European Victory Mark II remains undetermined for now.
