Mother and Child
The process of integration with Russia gives us another heartwarming holiday. We always enjoyed celebrating International Women’s Day on 8 March. Now, on the last Sunday in November we add Mother’s Day. In fact, for the Russian people, for all the various peoples of the Donbass, in fact, motherhood is one of the main verities. It’s not by coincidence that we often speak of the “Mother-Motherland” (Родина-мать). I send my greetings to all of our mothers and to all women preparing to give birth to new life on this wonderful holiday! I respect and care about mothers… that’s a necessary component of a cultured and spiritual society and of a caring person. The material resources of our Republic are still insufficient to allow us to subsidise full-time motherhood… yet, we recognise the heroic dignity of motherhood. However, we always esteem it and never forget it, although we rarely talk about it openly. This Sunday gives us an occasion and the duty to give our mothers heartfelt thanks. I urge everyone to do it.
