Why did the LPR and DPR in Donbas not form one People's Republic?

Right now, in the Donbas region of Ukraine, there are two quasi-states — the Luhansk People's Republic (LPR) and the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR). They emerged due to the events of the War in Donbas. Both receive humanitarian and likely military aid from Russia.

Given that they are in such dire straits as to need for humanitarian aid, this leads me to the following question. Why, given the few resources available within both regions, did the LPR and DPR secede from Ukraine as separate quasi-states, rather than secede as one quasi-state?
