Today, 11 July, at the Monument to the Victims of Fascism in the centre of the Park of Slavic Culture in Donetsk, the DNR MID* (aided by the Administration of the DNR Chairman of the Government and the NGO Donetsk Respublika) held a memorial event dedicated to the Day of Mourning and Sorrow for the Volyn Massacre of 1943-45. Present were DNR Minister of Foreign Affairs A I Kofman, DNR Minister of Culture AA Paretsky, Deputy Chairman of the Executive Committee of Donetsk Respublika A V Muratov, as well as other leading figures from the DNR.

  • MID: Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Opening the event, Kofman drew a parallel between the tragic events back of 72 years ago and the war unleashed by the Kiev junta in Novorossiya, “In Volyn, they killed Armenians, they killed Poles and Jews, they killed Ukrainians, as well as Russians. Fascists respect no nationality… they’re the scumbags of the human race; we must smother them. If they raise their heads again now, 70 years later, we must destroy them again. I’m very glad that Europe’s starting to wake up; many volunteers come from all over Europe to fight for us. They also know what fascism is all about. However, the European leadership doesn’t want to remember that, they want to forget about it. Nevertheless, I’m confident that we can do it. Today, we came here to honour the memory of those who died then… they were victims of fascism”.

Not only DNR official representatives at the event, but it also attracted Europeans, those who cared about the events taking place on the ground in the DNR. Mateusz Piskorski, from the Polish political faction Zmiana, emphasised that despite the fact that the DNR MID sent an invitation to Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs to come, the latter deigned not to reply. He said, “I want to declare that a Polish government delegation should’ve attended this present event. Incidentally, the DNR MID invited them to be here. After all, where better place is there to mark the anniversary of these tragic events, if not here… on the long-suffering Donbass land? After all, unfortunately, the ethos of the Volyn Massacre continues; those who subscribe to the ideology of Banderist fascism continue to rule one of our Eastern European countries, with the active support of the main abettor of Nazism… the USA. However, I’m sure that the repeat of the Volyn Massacre that they want to perpetrate here in the Donbass won’t succeed. We should remember the victims of the Kiev régime here in the DNR. Only one country in the world officially marked this year’s anniversary of the Volyn tragedy… the DNR”.

At the end of the evening, in tribute to the memory of all the victims, our children released white balloons into the sky as a symbol of hope for a peaceful and bright future.
