Today, our correspondent on the scene reported that future defenders of the Donbass competed in a boxing tournament in Makeyevka honouring the 70th anniversary of the Great Victory. D V Pushilin, the Vice-Chairman of the DNR Peoples Soviet, said, “Our Donbass people have always had the reputation of having enormous fighting spirit; a lot of our boxers won European Championships and World Championships, as our grandfathers won the Victory in the Great Patriotic War. It’s very important to understand and feel the ties between the events that occurred in the distant 1940s and the events that’re happening now. Boxing is a sport that presents a fight where you are one-on-one with your opponent. During a match, you can’t lean on anybody else, for its only you and your opponent in there”. The tournament, held at the gym of the Donbass Academy of Construction and Architecture in Makeyevka, attracted young pugilists from the DNR and LNR. Pushilin said, “Your ancestors won the Great Victory, this is the 70th anniversary of that… this is one of the most important holidays for us. You, our athletes, continue their legacy, gaining victory in the ring in sporting bouts… this is also a fight, but an honest and fair one. I want all of you to have grit, passion, and good luck. To the Holiday!”
