00 dnr donetsk pr m leshchenko 310815


Today, Maksim Leshchenko, Head of Administration for the DNR Chairman of the Government, told us:

By order of DNR Chairman of the Government A V Zakharchenko, we sent an official invitation this morning to the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights to send observers to monitor our local elections [on 18 October 2015]. Zakharchenko signed the request on Saturday, 29 August. We expressed our confidence that we’d soon get a positive response to our proposal. We have no intention to hide and hold closed elections in the region. Despite the difficult situation in the DNR, we’re committed to the Minsk Agreement and are ready to comply with it, even unilaterally. We’ll do everything possible to see to it that our local elections are fair and open. To show that everything is transparent and complies with the letter of the law, we hope that the OSCE would help us. We guarantee security for any [OSCE] mission and we’d see to the prerequisites for its fruitful work. Provocations are possible, but they’d be even more probable if the OSCE refused our invitation. We’ve never confirmed any case of cessation of attacks just because the OSCE mission came to a town intensively shelled on the previous day.

Zakharchenko sez We Won’t Build a Strong DNR Without the Active Work of Our Youth

00 a v zakharchenko 120815


Today, in a special message marking International Youth Day (International Youth Day is on 12 August; the UN General Assembly established it in 1999), DNR Chairman of the Government A V Zakharchenko pointed up that young People in the DNR are directly involved in the struggle for the Republic’s future, both in the military on the fighting line and in building peace, as well. He said, “You’re our future. In many ways, everything that we do, we do for you; however, I’m convinced that without your selfless participation in constructing a strong and independent state, it simply won’t happen. On the one hand, young people create social projects, they contribute to the development of our economy and industry, and they help in patriotic education; on the other hand, side-by-side with experienced fighters, they fight the invaders with arms in hand. Today, in our country, it’s really a time for young people. There are youth organisations all over the DNR, the number of activists increases by the day. Already, in the various youth associations enrol thousands. The largest DNR youth organization DNR, Молодая Республика (Molodaya Respublika: Young Republic), has about 10,000 members. My message isn’t just for people aged 16 to 35; it’s actually rather conventional. I want to greet everybody, I wish that all of us would always stay young, keep our youthful enthusiasm, vigour, and confidence in our strength, regardless of the birthday in our passport. Then we’d be able to shoulder any task”.
