LNR Chairman of the Government I V Plotnitsky said that aid from the Russian people and government wouldn’t only restore the war-ravaged Novosvetlovsky Hospital, but also make it one of the best in the country. Today, the hospital received over 10 million Roubles worth of new medical equipment from Russia. Plotnitsky noted, “Thanks to the Russian Federal government, the Donbass Homeland Foundation, and personal donations from Iosif Davydovich (Kobzon), now, we can hope that Novosvetlovsky Hospital will be one of the best in the Republic. Many thanks to everyone that helped us, and to the Russian Federation, for being sympathetic to our problems”. Then, Chairman Plotnitsky thanked two of the RF MChS drivers who made multiple humanitarian aid runs to the LNR, and awarded them each the LNR commemorative medal “70 Years of Victory”. Yakov Samushiya, Vice President of the Donbass Homeland Foundation, said, “The medicines and equipment we received today are about 60 percent of those needed to equip the hospital”.

From 13 to 28 August 2014, there was heavy fighting in Novosvetlovka that left 28 civilians dead. The battle destroyed the kindergarten, hospital, recreation centre, agricultural high school, church, and shops; besides this, there are almost no intact residential houses. All six buildings of the hospital had severe damage; the building with the infectious and neurological wards was a virtual write-off. The LNR Ministry of Construction (Minstroe) noted that all major work to restore the hospital is now complete. Minstroe repaired walls and floors, replaced more than 2,500 square metres of roofing, installed 6,000 square metres of glazing, replaced 150, and completely replaced the heating system. Currently, workers are laying new pavement on the hospital grounds, putting items in the garden and other areas, and completing interior finishing work.

When I saw this Russian demot with its deceptively simple text (it was actually one of those things that was a snap to “English” too), I thought of three of my friends… it’s for youse guys in particular, besides being a public post.


24 June 2015. A Thought from Ivan Ilyin

00 Roeselien Raimond. Purple Haze. 2015. ilyin. 240615


I A Ilyin wrote this nearly a century ago… I’d say this to you… “The level of expressed religiosity and the amount of actual religion are often in inverse proportion to one another. That’s to say, those with loudest professions often have the least actuality”. Do think on that… for if one were to go by expressed religiosity, one would go badly astray in diaspora Orthodox circles. Do remember the Apostle’s words on loud clashing cymbals…
