Artillery piece of the lugansk People's Militia on Display. The flag of the self-proclaimed confederation of Novorossiya (New Russia) is seen in the top left corner of the photo and the flag of the Luhansk People's Republic on the top right corner.

Novorossiyia was an unrecognised confederation of the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics, claiming the territory of the respective Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts in the Donbass region of eastern Ukraine. On 20 May 2015 the leadership of the Federal State of Novorossiya announced the 'freezing' of the confederation 'project'.

The Luhansk People's Republic along with the Donetsk People's Republic and the Republic of Crimea, are recognized by the Ukrainian government as "termporarily occupied territories" and remain unrecognised by any nation. (see Luhansk People's Republic Wikipedia page for more information).
