An LNR student team won third place at the First Open Youth Military-Patriotic Civil Defence Sports Games (sponsored by the Российским союзом спасателей (Rossiskim soyuzom spasatelei: Russian Union of Rescuers (RSS)), which took place 2-5 October in Aksai Raion of Rostov Oblast. The main purpose of the event was to teach young people how to protect others and act in emergencies, as well as testing rescue skills and how well one used personal protective equipment. The events had several parts. Immediately after the opening ceremony, there was a combined fire relay. For two days, the teams demonstrated their skills in NBC* contamination situations. Contestants performed simulated rescue operations, including evacuation of “victims” and providing first aid. Finally, the teams took part in a military-sports relay race and a quiz on civil defence. Teams from Rostov Oblast, the DNR, and the LNR took part in the games. In particular, the LNR sent two teams, Slavyane (Slavs) and Zarya (Dawn), consisting of the 20 best youth competitors in an LNR MChS contest. An official spokesman noted:

Slavyane won third place amongst 11 teams participating in the competition. This bronze may be worth more than a gold. Of course, to achieve such a result, it had the help and support of the other teams. Our motto was, “We aren’t Yanks, we’re Slavs, the Russians are our brothers”. Our guys truly felt a brotherly attitude from the opposing teams.

Valery Sinkov, Chief of the MChS Rossii in Rostov Oblast, gave our team its well-deserved awards, including a cup, “For Fraternity, in the Name of Support”, which it shared with a team from the DNR. The good showing of the LNR side wasn’t a fluke… it had serious training from sports coaches from the LNR power agencies and some had competed in Moscow.

Today, Aleksandr Afendikov, head of the Debaltsevo GMA*, told us that the St Gregory the Theologian Russian Charity Foundation will fund the construction in Debaltsevo of a church dedicated to the Icon of the Most Holy Birthgiver and Mother of God “of Tikhvin”, with work to begin in Spring 2016, saying:

We want to build another church, with a dual dedication to St George the all-Victorious and the Icon of the Most Holy Birthgiver and Mother of God “of Tikhvin”. The proposal originated in the first half of September; our Russian friends are giving us the material to help us build the church, and they promised to help us with the work involved. The building site is in the Eastern micro-raion of the city, we plan construction to begin next spring. The funds came from an appeal by Vladyki Mitrofan Nikitin of Gorlovka and Slavyansk; then, he asked me to help him with acquiring a site for the church. The Donetskproektor State Design Institute is doing the design work on the project.

Patriot forces liberated Debaltsevo from fascist occupation on 18 February 2015. During their retreat, junta militants deliberately sabotaged transport networks, including the largest railway junction in the Donbass. In total, the city lost 80 percent of its buildings. The DNR government made rehabilitating Debaltsevo one of its main goals; work began on repairing infrastructure and housing on 18 April.

Today, DNR Minister of Communications Viktor Yatsenko announced at a press conference that Russian ISP providers would enter the domestic market next year:

Next year, we plan to start buying traffic from the Russian Federation. Ukrainian providers would remain in the Republic, but the price of Ukrainian ISP services has grown considerably. The Ukraine officially increased prices on internet traffic by 17 percent. This meant that the price rose to our operators, as we buy all internet access directly from the Ukraine. However, consumer internet access is much cheaper in the DNR than in the Ukraine. Access to services at speeds of 100 megabits per second is no more than 400 Roubles (41 Renminbi. 418 INR. 6.50 USD. 8.40 CAD. 9 AUD. 5.70 Euros. 4.20 UK Pounds), whereas, for example, in Kharkov, the price of this package is 250 Grivnya (732 Roubles. 75 Renminbi. 765 INR. 11.75 USD. 15.30 CAD. 16.40 AUD. 10.50 Euros. 7.70 UK Pounds), and 200 Grivnya (586 Roubles. 60 Renminbi. 612 INR. 9.40 USD. 12.25 CAD. 13 AUD. 8.40 Euros. 6.20 UK Pounds) in Dnepropetrovsk.
