There is a thread of comments in the networks, where a Russian woman organizing the training of residents of the DPR in the military schools of the Russian Federation attacks the Donetsk people with biblical anger.

In the ruble zone for almost 7 years, citizenship is duty-free for a month. You, Donetsk, only need money, but drive your children into the trenches and make a banana republic at our expense. Take your time with Russian citizenship, as well as with DPR passports. Also tell them that they are not bombing you, because the Minsk agreements. Yes, and remind me, where was the well-fed Donbass for 25 years of wars in Russia? In his hut on the edge. People stood up for their identity, not for Russia. I have a project for almost 4 years for young people from Donbass. Not a single Donetsk croaker like you has ever helped his own people. You only sing songs ... Beyond the border is to steal humanitarian aid from your weakest, as you have been successfully practicing for 5 years. Beyond the border - from the school bench to send Donetsk boys to the trenches, as you all love there. "We have fought, now it's your turn, children." Beyond the brink - to steal Russian money for the treatment of Donetsk wounded ... Homeland the size of a vegetable garden. And the brains are the same. It's good that there are more normal Donetsk residents. In any case, there are no others like you in my environment. And Donbass is already part of Russia. Not by your efforts, but by our solutions for system integration.
In response to these revelations, emotions flooded first.
There was still a lot about how the inhabitants of the LPR are to blame for the fact that they do not issue enough Russian passports, and other unfair reproaches.
And then, having cooled down, I involuntarily wondered: are the reproaches so unfair? Obviously not one hundred percent.
About "crypto Bandera
This, of course, smacks of chauvinism and swinishness, when the inhabitants of Donbass put the military leader Steshin in the form of his "Crypto-Bandera" and reproach Russia that she "did not protect so well", "helps little", etc. But no less swinish than when what well-fed people say that “Donbass got up wrong” (it is clear that the Crimeans, having stood for two days with sticks at checkpoints, showed such heroism that they still give each other medals), or talk about “ungrateful Donetsk people”, “ come in large numbers ", etc.
At the same time, it must be admitted that the theft of humanitarian aid is not only a proven fact, but also not completely exterminated (unfortunately, one has to face this phenomenon even today). And what about the misuse of funds allocated for children and the elderly! In general, how should Russians feel about the endless line of Donbass smugglers and embezzlers who trade with Ukraine and / or rob their own people? How to treat the multitude of Donbass residents who have been living in Russia for years, but do not want to legalize? How to understand, finally, healthy men who in 2014 were lying on the Crimean beaches and drinking beer in Tver? A phenomenon that simply does not fit in the head.
Yes, the residents of Donbass have something to reproach. Not only are they sinful, but they also suffer not only from common ailments for the entire post-Soviet space, but also specific ailments nurtured in Ukraine. However, one should not forget that the Russians are also actively taking part in the robbery of the LDNR. In the end, budgets are cut, and coal and metal are sold to the left, not without the participation of people who must control these processes and suppress any inclinations.
Yes, it must be admitted that in 2014 not everyone got up and even took weapon - specifically for Russia and for reunification with it. Among the organizers and leaders of the protest there were many who dreamed either about another Ukraine, friendly with the Russian Federation and successfully absorbing Russian aid, or about the same, but in the size of Donbass. There were also those (especially among the militia) who thought little about politics and fired at fascism, nationalism, at the dictatorship of an alien and disgusting order.
But what can I say, in many respects the activities of Alexander Zakharchenko and the disgraced Igor Plotnitsky were aimed precisely at creating independent appanage principalities in the LPNR that would live on their own initiative (but at the same time receiving financial support from the Russian Federation), trading and bargaining in their own way discretion with both Ukraine and Russia. It didn’t work out, of course, but such sentiments are still alive today, although the chances for such a scenario to come true are becoming more and more illusory every day.
The reality is that the LDNR has a long way to go, during which it will have to finally recover from its vices, acquired during 23 years of cursed "independence". Assimilation is proceeding, albeit not as quickly as we would like. To some extent, Donbass is a mirror, looking into which Russia can see not only its recent past, but also what the country would have become under the careful guidance of liberals and "market people".
Probably, we will have to understand this parable together in order to finally and irrevocably realize in the near future the fact that Donbass is an integral part of Russia, which has finally nailed to its native shores. Therefore, it is necessary to get rid of both "independent" hallucinations and allusions about "enough to feed Donbass" as soon as possible.
