Vladimir Tkachuk, chairman of the DNR Army Sports Club (DNR SKA), told us:

The DNR SKA would provide disabled veterans opportunities to compete in sports. Currently, we have regulations to cover this. In addition, we have a list of sports that disabled vets could compete in. We’d coordinate the level of physical activity for disabled veterans with the Ministry of Sports and physicians. We need to determine what kind of stress that disabled athletes can put on their bodies. This is especially important in sports like Sambo and other types of combat martial arts. The level of disability won’t prevent anyone wishing to play sports. During the search for a site of the future training centre at the Yubileiny Sports Complex, I noticed a guy with no hands. I told the coaches with me that most anyone would envy his level of physical fitness. In future, the DNR SKA plans to train and coach Paralympic athletes.

DNR Scientists Introduced Technology to Extract Coal Products from Sludge Collection Basins

Specialists at Donetsk National Technical University (DonTU), together with UkrVibroMash technicians, developed revolutionary technology for Donbass coal mining enterprises to enable them to recycle resources. This will allow them to recycle coal products from waste sludge in water purification facilities at central processing plants, as this sludge has up to 40 percent coal slurry. Sergey Bukin, Tenured Professor of enrichment at DonTU, one of the researchers, told us:

We based it on vibration technology. We put a special unit into a settling pond to separate sludge, with the help of vibrating screens and separators, to isolate the coal products in it. The ash content of the concentrate after enrichment can be from 5 to 20 percent, we can use it both in power plants and in coke production. In just one hour, such a unit can process up to 50 tonnes of carbon-containing wastes, which now are sources of recycled resources. Sludge collection basins require substantial funds for maintenance and they occupy hundreds of hectares of usable space. With the development of this new technology, the Donbass benefits not only from new energy resources, but also solves a number of important environmental issues.

Currently, there are 80 sludge collection basins in the Donbass at central processing plants. They contain more than 70 million tonnes of waste sludge, previously considered contaminated toxic substances. In recent years, developments at sludge pit operations at the Samsonovskaya, Krasnodonskaya, and Belorechenskaya plants in the LNR have already brought improvements [in the environmental field]. In future, researchers plan to introduce processing to recycle nonferrous and noble metals in the sludge.

DNR Peoples Soviet Deputy Anzhelika Dobros: State Heraldry Personifies the State and Its Ideology

00 dnr medals 01 130915


00 dnr medals 02 130915


00 dnr medals 03 130915


Ideologically correct national symbols, complying with all the heraldic canons, are important in the DNR’s development. Anzhelika Dobros, head of the Department of Military Awards and Heraldry of the DNR Minoborony, DNR Peoples Soviet Deputy, and Deputy Chairman of the Committee on Constitutional Legislation and State Construction, offered these comments:

I took office in August 2014. At that time, for a month, nothing seemed to happen. I went through the papers; the documents were all in a mess. We began to look for people to restore the awards lists. People changed their contact info, so, it was very difficult to find them and restore lost documents. Therefore, we moved slowly, created an electronic database, and processed documents. At that time, the only DNR awards were the Order of St Nicholas, the St George Cross, and the medals “For Military Merit” and “For the Defence of Slavyansk”. Then, we established the award “For Military Valour” in three degrees. After this, in the autumn of 2014, we introduced the title of Hero of the DNR; the first awardee was DNR Defence Minister V P Kononov. Now, according to a Decree of the Head of the Republic, only the DNR Chairman of the Government can confer the Gold Star of the Hero of the DNR. Besides, we developed a number of awards, such as the “Internationalist”, for foreign volunteers who came to aid us, and the medals “For the Capture of Shakhtyorsk”, “For the Defence of Ilovaisk”, and “For the Defence of Saur-Mogila”. In addition, we have on proposal a special medal for military medical personnel. As for non-governmental awards widely accepted in recent times, I’m categorically opposed to them. Those who did such discredited the Republic and its ideology. Moreover, as experience shows, symbolism is of paramount importance, so, unofficial awards can muddy the record. This is not only true on a personal level, but also from the standpoint of national history.
