Military Review

The head of the DPR parliament: "We have a unique opportunity to change everything ..."

We begin a cycle of interviews with top officials of the republic. Our first interviewee - Chairman of the Parliament of the Donetsk People's Republic Denis Pushilin.




Denis Vladimirovich was born 9 in May 1981 in Makeevka, Donetsk region in the family of metallurgists. He spent his childhood and youth in his homeland. In 1998, he graduated from the Makeyevka City Lyceum. From 1999 to 2000, in the Armed Forces, he was demobilized as a senior sergeant of the National Guard of Ukraine. Now it is hard for him to talk about it: “This is a completely different guard. Its very name has become a common noun, a synonym for punitive. When killing fellow citizens, the Kiev junta kills and the memory of the little good that connected citizens with that already unrecoverable Ukraine ...”

After the army I was looking for my place in the sun. Who just did not work - from the security guard to the head of the department of a trading company. At the same time he studied: he graduated from the Donbass National Academy of Civil Engineering and Architecture, an engineer by training. Married


-In early April, you became the deputy people's governor, Pavel Gubarev, one of the leaders of the protest movement of Donbass. What was the "trigger" of the irreconcilable resistance of the Kiev "power"?

-Maydan. The “trigger” for millions of citizens of the then united Ukraine was the chaos perpetrated on the Maidan.

From the first "peaceful" demonstrations to an armed coup d'état, I was in Kiev, I personally watched everything, talked with the Berkut fighters, soldiers of the Internal Troops, many Kievans and people who came to fight the Yanukovych regime from different regions. These are idealistic idealists of Euroormancy, and paid-for "full-time revolutionaries" without convictions, and ideological nationalists. Conclusion: supposedly spontaneous protests were tightly controlled from the outside, Maidan - a project of the final colonization of Ukraine by the European Union and the United States. And the direct organizers and implementers of the project: the oligarchs, the then opposition and ordinary Ukrainians for the project developers are nothing more than political technology stuffing. It was completely obvious: what is happening is exactly the same as the scenarios of all the designed revolutions, be it the 1917 revolution of the year, the massacre in Moscow in the 1993 or the events in Libya of the 2011. Already in the early days of Maidan, I predicted the inevitable appearance of snipers, and that is what happened. The tried-and-true "blow off and tie with blood" technology to divide the people into theirs and enemies, murderers and victims, and to make civil war inevitable.

It was completely clear to me: Maidan is a model of the future for Ukraine: the final spurt towards death, a fall along the 1991-2014 trajectory - from high technology and the best education in the world to radishes and pigs grown in the center of the capital of Europe’s largest state by feral “European choice” "...

It had to be confronted so that the whole country would not become a torn Maidan. Returning to Donetsk in early March, I immediately joined the protest movement. First, as an ordinary participant of rallies, then as an organizer. There were many dissatisfied events, but no organization. Different groups - with left, right, centrist views could not agree and act on a single plan. I considered my task to unite these groups. The most important goal that unites all those dissatisfied with the Kiev junta is holding a referendum on the status of the region, and striving for this goal dictated all other actions.

“Then the aim of the majority was only federalization, and there was no unequivocal interpretation of this concept among representatives of various political forces and social movements. How did you manage to convince them that federalization will not solve anything and it is necessary to submit the question of state independence of the region to a referendum?

-Yes, at first, the majority suited the federalization of Ukraine. However, there was a trap in this: the federal structure does not cancel Kiev’s obligations to sign the second part of the Agreement with the European Union. Let me remind you that in the text of this part of the Agreement - the only word in Cyrillic is “GOST”. The refusal - at the request of the EU - of state standards deprived us of trade and economic cooperation with the countries of the Customs Union, dooming our industry to degradation.

- The referendum was held, the region received the status of an independent state, the Cabinet of Ministers was formed. And the citizens of the republic immediately had questions: on what basis was the Cabinet formed and how did the Regionals with more than dubious reputation turn out to be in it?

- This is the government "kamikaze", the office of the transition period. The task of this government is to lay the foundation for future work. These people are worthy of respect already because they took upon themselves such responsibility with a clear understanding that they are unlikely to vote for, because the voters will not get the desired result of the work of the Cabinet of Ministers for a short period before the elections. The hardest work went to those who are now supposedly at the helm. In fact, their powers, for understandable reasons, are very limited, and their responsibility is extraordinary.

As regards the presence of the regionals, this is a necessary measure. In recent years, party and social movements have been killed in the Donbas, except for activists of the Party of Regions there is no one to choose. We have a hard shortage of personnel, for all the positions of the reserve, the DPR activists tested in the struggle are not enough. The combination of ideological and professionalism in the assigned case is a rarity in any revolution, and at the stage of the beginning of state construction the problem of personnel selection becomes paramount. The republic is in dire need of specialists - economists, managers, technicians for work in relevant government committees. We invite those who are willing and able to work for the good of the republic, full scope for social creativity. The people themselves must form a fair socio-economic system, adopt laws protecting traditional spiritual values, create a society not of consumers, but of heroes and creators.

- Why is there no Pavel Gubarev and his people in the manual?

- Pavel will enter the Coordination Council, which will be created after the signing of the Agreement on cooperation between the Donetsk and Lugansk republics. In the Constitutional Court, each republic will have an equal number of representatives, this is a prototype of the highest governing body of the future Novorossia. People from the entourage of Paul are involved in the work of the established government committees. Ekaterina Gubareva, named in the first days after the proclamation of the DPR by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, cannot hold this post for reasons of a non-political nature. It is necessary, at least, knowledge of languages ​​and the ability to move around the world, and Catherine has three children ...

- Elections are scheduled for September 14. Will the electoral system remain the same or is it planned to undergo a radical change, that is, the elimination of cash deposits, the mandatory recall of deputies and other measures that ensure clear feedback and constant reporting by people's deputies to voters?

-The electoral system will not remain the same, that's for sure. We have a unique opportunity to change everything, and we will definitely use it. With genuine democracy there can be no question of the cash collateral of candidates. The Republic guarantees to every citizen the right to elect and be elected to the authorities at any level, as well as the right of direct control of all representatives of the authorities and the possibility of their withdrawal and re-election in case of non-implementation of programs approved by voters. The regulatory framework of the electoral system is now in the process of development. For now, I will only say that IP will be majority-owned, and its conceptual basis is to separate power and business, to prevent the possibility of the occurrence of corruption mechanisms destructive for the state.

-Since the selective system of the DPR is a majority, then what are the main goals of the United Russia party you are creating and the party of Novorossiya Pavel Gubarev?

- The goals are ideological. We are now considering two options: either all parties in the republic will be banned, or they will be equated with public organizations whose purpose is ideological work, primarily with young people. For so many years, we were imposed on an alien destructive, godless-consumer system of "values", diligently liberal-fascist and ultra-Nazi dead mythology tried to replace our living traditions, to kill the memory of the One Motherland in us. And many began to forget that we are Russians, we are Orthodox, we are an organic part of a unique civilization that gave the world the greatest saints, warriors, poets, scientists, creators of the unique space technology and philosophies. As the great commander Alexander Suvorov said: "Every soldier must know his own maneuver." So it is with us - every citizen should know what benefit he can bring to the republic, and therefore to the whole Big Russian World.

- What will be the economic policy of the government at the first stage of state construction? Everyone understands that deoffshorization is inevitable, otherwise the republic will not survive. At the same time, the “master of the region,” Rinat Akhmetov, refused to pay taxes to the budget of the DPR, his metallurgical enterprises were guarded by the National Guard, there is information about his contacts with Kolomoisky in order to create a united front of struggle with the Donetsk and Lugansk republics. That is the most so far rich Ukrainian, in fact, declared war on us. How to answer?

- Outsourcing, re-registration of large business enterprises, changes in the tax system are inevitable. It is too early to say what specific forms it will take, but those who work honestly and honestly pay taxes may not worry about their business. As for Akhmetov ... he doesn’t make contact, he even refused to meet with the UN representative. But what is happening in his enterprises in Mariupol, his non-recognition of the results of the 11 May referendum, the statement about the decentralization of power and the European choice of Ukraine - all this causes many questions to the people. Akhmetov assured us that he was "from the flesh and blood of Donbass." If so, then 89,7% supported the independence of the DNI. What kind of federalization / decentralization within Ukraine does he say? Is he with us or against us? We hope for his prudence, while he still has a chance ...

-St. 55 of our Constitution provides for the possibility of joining another federal state. You appealed to Russia, which asked "to consider the issue of the entry of the Donetsk People's Republic into the Russian Federation." What is the reaction of the citizens of the DPR and why is the Kremlin silent?

-This is done primarily to identify the reaction of citizens of the republic to the possibility of joining Russia. We were convinced: the dominant desire of fellow citizens is to be part of the Russian Federation. I emphasize that we are talking about the appeal, and not about the official appeal. We will receive an official response after an official appeal to the Russian authorities, and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov spoke about this. We are preparing the relevant documents.

      All this is good, but I’ll add a little bit of negativity: according to reports of Parubia, NATO aid is already on the border with Ukraine, and where is Russian help? Urgent means must be put in place to combat civilian air and ground terror: MANPADS and ATGM systems, it would be nice to help artillery and volunteers -specialists, it’s enough to look impassively at the massacres of the Russian population of the South-East of Ukraine! Glory to the DNI and LC!

      So play with Kiev ..

      And for me, everything is so correct. Figurative meaning: the government will be forced to leave after September 14, when the elections are held. And at the same time, it also takes on the first, most difficult blows, sacrifices a possible political future (its own) - and possibly life. "Kamikaze" is for us suicide bombers, for the Japanese - HEROES!

      I am joining. Akhmetov today called on the workers of his enterprises to protest against the DPR at 12 o’clock. Dobkin is already against federalization (mu.ak, but keeps his nose upwind). Kiev refuses to pay pensions to Slavyansk and Kramatorsk, leaves the rest. Troops, sort of like, withdraw. Somewhere, some kind of alignment has changed.
      For the DNI to exist autonomously, it is necessary to manage financial flows, but this is not. Here you need to take Ahmetka, only he can give a command. But as? Sea problems, I hope there is a clear plan. We are waiting for the development of events.

      All is correct. But Akhmetov must be driven by a filthy broom and nationalized his enterprises, so he will always be on the side of Kiev and the West, i.e. the goat should be driven out of his garden, so that then he would not have the desire to return back. Otherwise, this dirty little troubles could initiate in the territory of the DPR and New Russia.

          It’s time for Ahmetka to present an ultimatum and 24 hours to think it over, it’s not decided, let him forget about after that his assets on the territory of the DPR and LPR are no longer.

    It is interesting why the neoplasm was called the People's Republic, what kind of people it is if the oligarchs remain the owners of large enterprises. Nationalization is not even planned, strange people create power and leave behind insidious, vile enemies. History has repeatedly shown that the oligarchs in any case will interfere, okay still economically, but you can expect a knife in the back from them. The farther I look at all this, the more I am inclined to think that they will crush both the Lugansk and Donetsk Republics. They understood nothing and are not able to build. Constant appeals to join Russia is an extra proof of insolvency. In fact, it was not worth it, and if you don’t know what to do. why did people die and are still dying, and in fact the worst?

        Where does such knowledge come from? What do you have revolutionary experience? Does the example of building a people's republic of Venezuela tell you nothing? Why do you think it should collapse? Under normal leadership, everything will work like a clock. But strong power is needed, not mumbles. You hinted about the base, what do you mean? what such a base. Yes, until there is a tough and fair government, no basis at all will come of it. How many times it is necessary to remind you that communications, energy, water and gas supply, banks, all this must be taken under control in the very first days, without all this it’s stupid and not even serious to mention the supposedly popular republic.

People are now there and are engaged in gathering power, sculpting the constitution, forming the cabinet ... And the base should be the usual one for any enterprise. Are they analyzing everything and what's next? To whom should we supply products? Who should you sign contracts with? In what right field will they work?

          Listen, what are you arguing about? In fact, this week the republic has no state apparatus, no army, no law enforcement agencies, no banking system, no finance - nothing at all! To reproach the DPR with the fact that industry is not nationalized among pro-Russian proprietors — this is ultra-revolutionary, where is Hugo Chavez! Chavez came to power in 1998, and for the first time began the nationalization of Venezuela's largest telecommunications and electricity companies - Compania Nacional de Telefonos de Venezuela (CANTV) and Electricidad de Caracas, controlled by American firms, only in 2007. Chavez had 9 years of rule before nationalization!

            He was categorically FOR the DNR and LNR, until I saw Strelkov's appeal and comments to him. To be honest, I do not envy from the bottom of my heart those people who will live in these "republics." These people are practically nobody in the world space. They will have passports that are not valid outside their republics, they will not go anywhere, even stupidly to Egypt. Plus the world blockade, plus the vague position of Russia ... and a lot more. So it is not surprising that no one wants to fight for this, because people see the hopelessness of their future in these DNRs.

          When the Bolsheviks took power in October 17th, they had a party with a ready-made program of action and strict discipline, and even at the first stage they preferred to attract tactical allies (though it’s not always cleanliness, to take some into allies is to discredit yourself).
          On the southeast, everything happened spontaneously, from below, without a leading and organized political force.
          For example, the Simonenkovskaya KPU, instead of direct and open opposition to the junta, until recently tried to engage in compromise with the usurpers, until those of the happy kicked them away, complete political impotence and self-discrediting, some sort of Gorbachevism. Now it is good for the leaders of the Communist Party of Ukraine if the revolted people of South-East at least accept as allies, even some regionals "orientated themselves faster. So, while the politically motley rebels finally self-organize and develop a" roadmap "of actions, some That time ... Something like that.

      As long as they remain owners ... people do everything sequentially. Yes, they may not have enough experience, but along the way they will gain it. It is amazing that with such pressure for the whole 23 years and zombie people in general, there were guys who could convey to the people the whole essence of what is happening, as well as unite and direct people. And the most important thing is that they are for the people and the people trust them. If the republics hold on and unite in the future, then it will be possible to talk about joining Russia. And this does not mean at all that: They did not understand anything and were not able to build. Constant requests to join Russia are more proof of insolvency. "

      In fact, it was not worth it, and if you don’t know what to do. why did people die and are still dying, and in fact the worst?

      And you think it was necessary to agree with the Nazi authorities and continue to live as if nothing had happened .. to become slaves in the full sense of the word geyropa and v.shingtona. Like disagreeing crush, and then the debris came out .. not a planned rebuff Donbas.

      God help you Orthodox Slavs !!! Hold on and do whatever you see fit.

    Money is power, and Akhmetov and others like him have it.
    It is unlikely that he would not stop using it at his discretion and objectively to the detriment of the DPR.

    I advise that all enterprises and organizations, including banks, that refuse to pay taxes in favor of the DPR or that transfer money abroad, should be nationalized. Put their directors and accountants at the head. And to introduce a temporary institution of people's commissars, who control the activities of enterprises and are subordinate only to the head of the DPR, so that not a single unit of the national currency "leaks" beyond the "border" or falls into the "pocket" of the covetous people with super-profits.

    That’s the answer to all our Chapaevites and Putin’s predecessors. The South-East is not the Crimea, there is a big political struggle and we should not get into the trap prepared by the West. Everything will be gradual, from the creation of a legitimate government and its recognition (through the gnashing of teeth) by the West, to joining the Russian Federation. Will.

    We somehow look at the citizens of the DPR and LPR who voted in a referendum but do not want to fight with a misunderstanding. And where is the rally in Russia with the support of our brothers? Why does the Kremlin help sluggishly? Diplomatic steps are good, but not enough. What awaits Putin, major bloodshed? Mistakes of the government of Ukraine? If you didn’t send troops, then weapons were at least thrown. I really hope that Yu-V will help, it is painful to see how our people are dying.

    Unfortunately, there are statements by the leaders of the DPR and LPR, there is no statement of a single entity that could have arisen during the referendum. It will take time to create it, which could be used to consolidate resources (military, human, technical) and their joint use. And now, one region will fight with the Akhmetovs, the other with the Kolomoyo, and they both, with each region separately (they will quickly agree on the use of force).

    I hope that the Kremlin is vigilant, and the leaders will not be "smart" in search of their own path. The laws of nature and politics have been tested for centuries.

    The republics now need to show the whole world that they are fighting against Fascism. Example Spain 1936. Issue an appeal to all the peoples of the world for help in the fight against fascism and disseminate it by all possible means. Then it will be more difficult for the West to render assistance to the fascist government in Kiev, and they will receive international support. In Germany, Merkel is already booing at rallies.

    On the one hand, I don’t want to get involved in the war, it just seems to be all right, but it is our well-being that is an extremely annoying factor for the United States. So, Ukraine will end, with us, without us ... this is clearly unambiguous, and November will soon show someone in Ukrainian territory to live well. Why do many people think that GDP is not working ?? In my opinion, on the contrary .. there are a lot of movements, or for all the deployment of troops and only a video war is an action ?? Residents of Donbass and Donetsk ... it became bad to live here .. well, okay, so let's go to the good Olympic Bear, recall him that we are blood brothers, let him feed us, he has a lot of money, but it will be bad .. we’ll arrange a maidan ..
    And on the other hand .. we are already in the war, fighting ..
    It’s not clear why everyone is scared by NATO near our land .. Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia .. where it’s closer, but there are no tantrums.

      In addition, placing missile defense elements near borders is not always good for organizing an effective missile defense system. All these elements - radars, anti-missiles - are very easy to destroy - 10 seconds before the command to launch strategic missiles. Near our border it is much easier to do!

Secondly, let the "authorities" of the "DPR" and others decide what they want more all the same - to be independent or to become part of the Russian Federation. And thirdly - it's too late to drink Borjomi! It was necessary to take active steps in February, but now it's too late to rush about - only 2 small towns are fighting, the rest are deeply on the side.

          Do you think that many have the courage to go to war almost without weapons, and even if with weapons, then against the very superior forces gathered by the Kiev junta ?!
          If people think that they are leaked or merged anyway, do not feel support, then who will commit such suicide ?! Because few people go to war. Behind the Kiev junta is the de facto official power of Kiev and the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the radicals, and most importantly - the West. And Putin has only recently been talking about non-intervention, the withdrawal of troops, etc. After the massacre in Odessa, shelling of Slavyansk, Kramatorsk and other things - Russia has not really stood up for any Russians so far, except for the next blah blah blah. People are not fools - they see that there is no promised Russian defense. And will it be ?! I understand that Russia should not flog fever and stupidly send troops - this is very fraught and could be a mistake. This is not about that now. And ABOUT POSSIBLE MORAL AND OTHER SUPPORT. I EVEN DO NOT SEE IT ALREADY FOR A LONG TIME. For what and why should people go to war? They must understand this. A person must understand why he is going to risk his life. That in the east of Ukraine, far from everyone understands this - the facts say - few people are eager to take up arms.

And we can all give advice here!

    I already wrote earlier, but I repeat, today the DNI officially opened its representative office in Rostov-on-Don. while on the official website of the city it is indicated that the republic needs everything from food and medicine to body armor and ammunition.

    Here's a couple of phrases for you all, fighters against "fascism"
    The election of 42-year-old Moscow PR specialist Alexander Borodai as prime minister of the terrorist organization (according to the qualifications of Ukrainian law enforcement agencies) "Donetsk People's Republic" finally turned the idea of ​​Donetsk separatism into a farce. It demonstrated that the DPR has no mass support. Otherwise, in Donetsk, there would be a queue of representatives of the local political or business elite, intending to sit down on the grain and sign an agreement with Putin.

    Now Igor Girkin is the "Defense Minister" of the DPR. On May 17, this Moscow reenactor and a retired military man (these are aspects of his biography about which we can confidently speak) addressed the residents of Donetsk and Lugansk regions with a desperate appeal. He explicitly admitted that the male population of the region, especially the youth, did not want to join his army. He confirmed that only a few hundred people from Russia and different regions of Ukraine are under his command, mostly people over forty. The last Soviet generation that had not been at war, I will add from myself. Not finding a place for itself and occupation in modern Russia. Dreaming of remembering youth, when she ran so well with a machine gun in the ranks of the Soviet army, and there was still lush vegetation on her head.

      This is precisely why there is no "local political elite" because, on the one hand, it must not be allowed in so as not to steal, and on the other hand, "signing an agreement with Putin" is not an easy task if he does not want to. And the elite understands that it will be necessary to "harness" in full, because there is a lot to do! Who is hunting?
      And further.. You somehow forgot to mention that Borodai is not only a PR specialist, but also a specialist in crisis situations! So his invitation is justified.
      Well, your alarmism is easily explainable - it's no wonder that such a nickname wassat

      So what? What thoughts are about these phrases? I’ll go to the censor now and I’ll phrase a dozen more.
      In your opinion, everyone should have turned to officials? And the reenactor, just in case, carries the entire Ukropov "army" with his muzzle on the table.

        Well, in Chechnya Basayev and company also at one time "carried our army to the table." Half a year will pass. The Ukrainian military will learn how to fight, and they are fighting for their land, and I think Girkin will have problems. Remember in 1994, how crowds of Chechen residents stopped the columns of troops, and now, like all terrorists in the world, "supporters of federalization" are hiding behind the backs of citizens, from here all these imaginary successes. And the "fascist" army of Ukraine for some reason tries to avoid casualties among civilians, does not bomb Sloviansk with aviation, does not bombard with Grad systems, does not iron tanks. Why?????

          Follow the media, sir! To say this after strikes on residential areas in Slavinsk is "PREGNANCY" AND "CYNISM"! If you do not know, decent people have such concepts, and they do not allow either one or the other. For you, this is obviously the norm of life.

            I follow the media, there are a lot of reports of attacks in the Russian media, I do not argue, but where are the reports of mass casualties? If these victims were there, would it really be that the VGTRK channel wouldn’t show them, relishing the details?

    Despite the threats of dismissal, no more than 200 people came to the Akhmetka rally "against the DPR" in the Donbass arena. Meanwhile, Chipushilin announced the beginning of the nationalization of industrial enterprises.

    Something like this...

    MOSCOW, May 20 - RIA Novosti. The head of the Presidium of the Supreme Council of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic Denis Pushilin announced the beginning of the process of nationalization in the region.

    Rally in support of the Donetsk People's Republic: On the eve of Rinat Akhmetov, owner of System Capital Management, urged his workers to go on a warning strike against the actions of independence supporters. The management of the Metinvest mines in Mariupol confirmed that they will stop working for three hours every day at noon.

    "Due to the reluctance of regional oligarchs to pay taxes to the budget of the DPR, it was decided to start the process of nationalization," the DPR's Twitter account quoted Pushilin as saying.

    Earlier it was reported that the Donetsk Railway came under the control of the republic.

    Election of 42-year-old Moscow PR man Alexander Boroday as Prime Minister


    Alexander PROKHANOV, writer, politician:

    - Of course, this is a fantastic situation, I agree. The revolution sweeps away all old structures, creates voids, and new faces appear in these voids. Beard is a unique person. I know him for a long time, still absolutely young, almost a youth. He is the son of a famous philosopher, metaphysician, who studied humanity, explaining why over time a person has many taboos that he cannot break. Amazing mystic, he was a friend of Leo Gumilyov. When I met his son Alexander, he was such a bright, charming, critical young man who later grew into a great connoisseur of domestic and foreign policy. His connections were striking in their versatility. He was friends with representatives of the radical patriotic opposition since 1993. On the other hand, his ties extended to oligarchic circles. In our newspaper he appeared frequently. He was the author of articles and a friend of our employees. His materials, which I remember and appreciate, were from the fronts of two Chechen wars. He participated in assaults and battles, he is a very brave and furious man. And, despite the fact that he is intellectual, he is also a “field commander”. Apparently, these two properties brought him to the Donetsk Republic. As for the fact that he is a citizen of Russia, this is not surprising. Saakashvili, for example, has American citizenship. But I heard that before becoming Prime Minister, Alexander Boroday accepted the citizenship of the Donetsk Republic.
