Strange situation: Donbass has already died? And on this topic, you can write either well or nothing? But the ancient Romans said a little differently: either well or nothing but the truth. Lies as if for a while I do not watch. Some, however, thought differently, but forgive me, it was not my fault that they did not know that there were elections in the Donbas. And it is in the people's councils of both republics.
So, essentially the question.
The treatment that we write about Donbass is either good or nothing, does not suit me personally. And I will not write about the series of endless holidays in the DPR. There are other people for this. If a journalist’s conscience allows someone to write two lines about a lost woman, and then avidly tell on two sheets that the same day was the celebration of the day of the St. George ribbon - this is to each his own.
What is happening today in the DPR causes a feeling of surprise and misunderstanding.
You have a war? Do people die? Then what kind of festivals are we talking about? "We will answer with provocative songs and dances to the next shelling?" And then from the feast right to the funeral? Brad of some kind, really feast during the plague.
A four-meter-high St. George ribbon. Well, not at your own expense. Present. It’s not for me to judge whether it is bad or good, but dragging this tape does not look very clever. Of course, it is better for Donetsk citizens to judge whether all these festivities are necessary or not. But we will be judged too, because we have every right to do so.
We are, of course, Russia. And our budget. "White KamAZ" is us. “North wind” is us. Gas and electricity that go for free is us. Money for salaries and pensions - again we.
It is clear that the monuments need to be repaired and, perhaps, to open new ones. And to celebrate, too, sometimes something is necessary. But not all the time. There seems to be a war. So it turns out in fact an interesting such alignment. A year has passed without active hostilities. Legal system can not be adjusted. Industry can not. The economy is more like the protection of the market in 90's with us. One excuse - "we have the same war." About the law generally keep quiet, it was not and is not even expected. Complete chaos.
With the constitution we turn, as we want, we expel the deputies, as in Russia, Gaster from work, if the muzzle did not come out.
By the way, in September a rally in support of Purgin was held (more precisely, he tried to be held). About 40 a person was arrested. So, according to my information received from Donetsk friends, everyone is sitting. And they will sit. There are no courts ... And there are no bomber as well, for the role of lawyers. For every extra word can happen to knock on the door.
And everyone is silent, everyone is happy with everything. The instinct of self-preservation works like a clock. And this is understandable and not deprecated. Everybody wants to live.
But what does the Russian world plum mean? Russia did not come up with laws on which it openly "puts". Not Russia thought up to arrange such elections, which took place in the DPR. When the deputies went to the lists from as many as two parties, and now the voters do not know who to run to. Because voted do not understand for whom. It is not Russia’s fault that the economy and industry are in a duplex state. Russia is not to blame for the fact that operating enterprises (especially those working for export) still pay taxes to Ukraine. And for some reason this suits both Plotnitsky and Zakharchenko. Russia is not to blame for the fact that the former militia left, and it is unlikely to return, even if it burns strongly. Because they are in Russia. Work for their own good.
It is clear that all the fault of Russia is that our divisions did not enter and did not take Kiev. Then there would be beauty and lepota. Well yes. Give us, and more, and we can eat ourselves.
And yourself? What are they? Oh yeah, war ...
But what a bad luck again. The two buildings of the LC and the DNI are 30 thousands of people. Well, take 40, with scribes, cooks, and so on ... And throw thousands more 10 on the MGB, and so on. This is to make it easier to count. Total 50 thousands of people who have something to do with the war. Or struggling with manifestations of this war. These are those who are related to "we have a war."
And there are still 2,5 million. That is, in the 1 war of 50. Rest? The rest of what? Never mind. Teach children. Treat people. Clean up the trash. Repair the pipes. Coal is mined. Not all 49, of course. But the main part. And if they prevent the war, that in the part that is adjacent to the front line. They live. Not at your pleasure, but - live. And we write about them, and we write with pleasure. And we will write in the future.
But that goes against the understanding, too, it makes no sense to remain silent. For the DNI is far from the Brazilian standard of "the country of the eternal carnival." Very far away. But Russia has nothing to do with it.
Yes, they put "their" Minister Borodai. And he seemed to have put his own Minister Strelkov. Did not come to court? No question removed. Is everyone local today? Everything. Any changes? It seems to be there. With last year can not be compared, better. From total lawlessness went to the lawlessness of a single group of individuals. Already progress.
Many of my friends from there whisper say that the Russians are very often behind the chaos. I listen. But since not a single last name has been mentioned, I don’t even extend to this point. There will be something to say - I will say. So far, only half-hearing and half-gossip.
But with the mayhem of local bottling 14 months of my skating with the help of the militia faced. Here are just Russians in them, I have never seen.
Not with the Russian woman Gubareva and her people, I had a nehily scandal in May last year. It was on the subject of where and how they sent our first cargo. And after that, the Lord (or rather, good people) took me away from the baryg intermediaries and gave me the opportunity to work directly.
Not the Russian militia in Avrosimovka tried to “ease” me by a quarter of the load in favor of the “glorious militia”. And the load was God forbid. And when I refused them and turned around to wait for the "Golden Eagles" on the neutral, the Avrosimovskys quickly plunged into the car and drove to overtake our truck. Considering that we naturally were without weaponswould have caught up and eased. But already on the big figure. And thanks to our Chechens, who did not give us an offense. And there already, and "Berkuty" pulled up.
Not a Russian, but a Donetsk man Misha “Konvoy” tried to deploy me in Kuybyshevo to Izvarino. Say, there will not miss for anything, and there I will drag you and unload. I would unload it ... Well, my friends from Donetsk suggested that this clown had already been a month since it had been expelled from the SVD Berkut.
Not the Russians, but the very residents of Bryanka calmly "pushed" the load of my friend Mokey, instead of taking it from me, to tell who should be in this town.
Not Russians stole 400 thousands from the Ghost Battalion. This, too, was not weak barking with the brain. While he was doing business under Debaltseve, the head of the humanitarian department was put in the basement, and money was withdrawn from her card. I lost my relationship with Mozgov, but I didn’t have to prove that Gladkov was nothing. And Gladkov pull out.
What happened next with the money, I don’t know, it wasn’t my business, but daddy with documents convincingly proving that while Gladkova was sitting, two people withdrew money, one in Donetsk (ours) and the second in Shakhty, still lies somewhere in Russia. And a flash drive with a recording of an ATM camera in Donetsk. Who went to the mine in a different way identified. So, just in case lies. Suddenly in Lugansk I will get together, there will be someone to show a kintso.
Not Russians shot the humanitarian Russian Zhenka "Zarya". He remained to the border kilometer 3-4. They were shot precisely because they refused to share. Caught on the way back from Lugansk. And they wrote off everything on the Ukrainian DRG ...
I did not write about it. How, casting a shadow on all the militia because of a couple or three villains ... But the longer I look at that side, the more I realize that everything is not as festive and rosy as I would like. And not at all in the way that the media of the unrecognized republics often want to show us. And the percentage of villains for some reason does not decrease.
People are the same everywhere. There is an opportunity to cling to the cut - they will be sawed while there is an opportunity. And sawing. And in the DNI, and in the LC. Such is the nature of man.
It took a long time, as there is no active hostilities in the Donbas. And after a year we can draw certain conclusions about the viability of the republics. And we will look further. If only because we have done our time in a good way, I think, a contribution to the victory.
Therefore, in the future, materials about life in the DPR and LPR will appear. Depending on how events will unfold. We have done so, and we will continue to do so.
And if someone has a weak nervous system, and he wants us to have materials on the endless achievements of the republics and holidays, then there is DAN for this. Donetsk Agency News. Love and favor. Everything is always beautiful there.
And we, forgive, will have those materials that are provided by our Donbass friends. To whom I personally believe. Which if they fought, it was not like some, "with one tube for three and two horns against the brigade of the rangers." Although such, too, God forbid.
And, gentlemen screamers, remember one simple thing. The Russians have already invested so much into the Russian world in the Donbas, with blood, health, work, money, help, with the words that only a traitor can speak of some kind of "plum". Both Russia and Donbass.
Russia will never “merge” the Donbass. Another question is that today Donbass itself often does a good job. With the apparent connivance of its inhabitants. Well, if there are real problems and it is difficult to talk about them - nothing, we can handle it.
There is a time to throw stones, and there is a time to collect them.
