Donetsk, Feb 7 – DAN. DPR plans to relaunch the Stirol pharmaceutical manufacturer in Gorlovka, which has been out of operation for two and half years because of Kiev’s offensive, the Republic’s head Aleksandr Zakharchenko said at a meeting with Donetsk students on Tuesday.

“A plan to relaunch Stirol is in the works,” he said.

DPR is drawing a list of priority chemical and pharmaceutical companies which will resume operation. There are seven such facilities.

“We wish our republic to be able to produce the essentials in its own territory,” Zakharchenko said. *jk
