OFFICIAL Greetings of DNR Chairman of the Government A V Zakharchenko on City Day in Donetsk

00 Vitaly Podvitsky. Happy Birthday, Donetsk! 2014



Dear compatriots and Donetsk residents!

To Donetsk… our Hero-City and capital of our Peoples Republic!

I warmly greet you on your holiday… City Day… this being the first time that we celebrate it as the capital of an independent state.

Today, all progressive mankind sees Donetsk personifying the struggle against the fascist threat gaining momentum around the world. Supported by Western governments and the NATO military machine, the Ukraine inflicted hard and terrible blows on Donetsk. When Donetsk loudly said “no” to the Nazi Euromaidan putsch on the Maidan, the mad Ukrainian junta put our beloved city to a severe trial. They threw combat aircraft, heavy artillery, and AFVs against our peaceful and prosperous city, with its great labour traditions. Day after day, month after month, they subjected Donetsk to inhuman shelling and bombing. However, our young capital stood, and a new country stood about her… the Donetsk People’s Republic. The valiant defenders of our heroic city repulsed the attack of the Ukrainian aggressors and their foreign mercenary allies, inflicting terrible losses, forcing them to stop at the gates of Donetsk, which became a fortress, stopping the aggressor forces. Unfortunately, this victory came at a dear cost. The brutal Ukrainian attacks killed or wounded thousands of innocent people in Donetsk… women, the elderly, and children. Our beautiful and lovingly built city suffered unprecedented destruction. They destroyed homes, hospitals, schools, kindergartens, churches, and deliberately destroyed industrial infrastructure. However, I’m confident that with hard work and courage, along with our indomitable spirit and love for our hometown, the people of Donetsk will not only restore our city, we’d soon begin a new era of development in the capital of Donbass.

Dear Donetsk neighbours… with all my heart I want to wish you all good health and success in all undertakings, happiness, and a peaceful sky over your head! To the Feast, our Great City! To the feast, Donetsk, unconquered capital of the DNR!

V R Samoilov in Donetsk


Yu D Chicherina… Please… in memory of the murdered children of Novorossiya


Yu S Andreyeva with Arkhipelag in Donetsk on Victory Day (9 May 2015)


Today, young people flocked to a large festival concert in Shcherbakov Park to celebrate Day of the Miner and City Day (30 August). On the main stage, rockers and rappers, both local and from Russia, appeared, amongst them, Yu D Chicherina, Yu S Andreyeva with Arkhipelag, and V R Samoilov (founder of Agata Kristi), as well as musicians from St Petersburg, Samara, and other Russian parts. The event was truly massive… it filled the entire park; several thousand surrounded the stage. Despite this, the situation remained calm and friendly. An entertainment programme preceded the concert. The first number was a show called “Extreme Power”, put on by Donetsk homies and visitors from Taganrog. Anyone could show off their skills, to see who got the most interest from the crowd. Then, the bikers roared in. The crowd went nuts over the Donetsk branch of the famous Night Wolves MC. Their presentation wasn’t as large as planned, because there were so many people in the park that there wasn’t enough space to put it on in its entirety. However, the main draw of the evening was V R Samoilov, the founder and frontman of the famous band Agata Kristi. Every time that he tried to leave the stage ended in a long photo-op with the crowd. Vadim Rudolfovich is one of the most popular musicians in the DNR; he just couldn’t deny his fans. Local pols and figures gave their greetings and speeches; all those taking part in the festivities expressed their desire for peace and gave encouragement to the Donetsk homies. D V Pushilin, Vice Chairman of the DNR Peoples Soviet, addressed the audience, “We have a dual holiday… Day of the Miner and City Day. Needless to say, for us, our miners and their work are fundamental to our republic… greetings, Donetsk, our mining land, on your holiday!” Currently, the concert is still going on. Meanwhile, the older generation is waiting for tomorrow. One of their faves is appearing in Donetsk, the Generalissimo of Crooners, Peoples Artist of the Russian Federation and of the DNR, I D Kobzon {click here for Somewhere Far Away, the theme to the famous TV show, 17 Moments of Spring).
