Fragile memory trees

20



Two years already live Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republic. Is it good or bad, but these are territories free from fascism. This is the territory where holy things are kept. историяwhere residents defended their right to speak in Russian, where veterans of the Great Patriotic War are honored and not beaten (as in the occupied Ukraine junta).

Thousands of dedicated soldiers sacrificed their lives for the Republics to live. People who stopped the Neo-Bandera Tankswho caused fire on themselves at Saur-Grave, who carried the wounded on themselves ... As in the “forties, fateful”.

In memory of the Donbass defenders, both in that war and this war, the Alley of Memory was laid in the Lenin Komsomol Park in Donetsk on April 11. Now the fragile trees planted by the younger generation will faithfully keep the memory of the fallen.



It is symbolic that this alley was created near the alley of angels. Near the stone dedicated to the children of Donbass shot by ukrohuntoy.



The head of the Donetsk People's Republic, Alexander Vladimirovich Zakharchenko, personally took part in the planting of young trees. Two veterans of the Great Patriotic War, Alexander Nikolaevich Dmitrenko and Vladimir Stepanovich Kurolenko, joined him as well as the schoolchildren. Together with them, Donetsk mayor Igor Martynov also worked.

And the ceremony began with the welcome words of the Head of the DPR. When the leader called him "the main defender", he declared that the main defenders were veterans of the Great Patriotic War, and asked them to stand side by side. Addressing these two venerable warriors, he said: “You were able to convey to us the feeling with which you were going into battle. The experience you gave us is the best science for us. This is the science of loving one’s homeland and giving its life for it. We could learn this from you. ”

Before declaring a minute of silence, Zakharchenko stressed that a nation that forgets its history and its defenders is a losing nation.

Olga Makeeva, deputy head of the People’s Council of the Republic, compared the newly opened walkway with Poklonnaya Hill. “Here lives the memory of the heroic deeds of our grandfathers, here we honor the memory of our children who died during the shelling,” she said.

The Minister of Information of the DPR, Elena Nikitina, said that young bear seedlings would now grow in the alley, and this tree lives for centuries: “The war has not ended, and we are in a hurry to thank. We are in a hurry to perpetuate the memory. The tree is a symbol of immortality. May the deed of those who gave their lives for peace be immortal. ”

Helped organize events and purchased seedlings guest from Russia Nikita Tomilin. This young man shared with the audience his impressions of trips to the warring Donbas.



In memory of those who died in the air, balloons of three colors of the flag of the Donetsk People's Republic — blue, red and black — were released.

In addition, the head of the DPR Alexander Zakharchenko answered questions from journalists. He urged the Ukrainian military to lay down weapon and surrender, thus ending the killing of Donbas civilians. Those who wish, according to Zakharchenko, can join the army of the Republic.

The head of the young state expressed the hope that "Easter holidays will pass quietly, and this Easter will not be bloody." However, he noted, from that side they like to attack precisely on holidays. “If they decide to attack, then this Easter will be bloody not for us,” he said.

When asked by the journalist about the resignation of Yatsenyuk, Zakharchenko answered concisely and with irony: "Pyotr Alekseevich, stop rearranging the furniture."

No matter how things develop further, there will be or will not be a new offensive, and those who have fallen are already invincible. And the Donetsk residents will remember them, walking along the alley of memory and touching the trees with their palms ...

    Very well said, Elena! Just the best, the most! The photos are good.
    And most importantly people on them! Peace and happiness to Donbass!

    Surprisingly resistant people in Donetsk and Lugansk. You are the defense of Russia and the Russian people from Bandera and the Nazis. Admire your stamina. I regret that your example was not followed by Kharkiv residents, Cossacks and Odessans. These were originally our territories and our people lived there. Apparently, this is a flaw in our special services. Everyone should do their own thing. I have the honor.

      As for the Kharkiv residents, they already wrote that the mayor's betrayal broke them off and hundreds are now suffering in the SBU. In Odessa, on the Day of the Liberation of the City from the Nazis, there was also a sickly skirmish, and in Zaporozhye - ask how many Cossacks are in the ranks of the DPR army. No! Far from "everything is lost" in Ukraine.
      It’s nice and joyful to read such reports, thanks to Elena!
      But the bell rings, the alarm bell rings ...
      The head of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People's Republic (LPR) Igor Plotnitsky complained that investors were afraid to invest in the republic. He said this at a meeting of the Council of Ministers of the LPR. Plotnitsky’s video is available on Youtube.

      “And the implementation of our budget programs? How is it taken into account? Where is she with us? We have no investment development at all. That is, we are such a banana republic that no one will bring the ruble to us and there will be no investment, ”said the head of the LPR.

      So who is to blame for you that there is no development program? And this is necessary! With the banana republic of LPR compared! I urgently wanted an investment! Did the second Petro cut through? Oh, look people are better! In pursuit of investments, you won’t have time to breathe, as you will be taken hostage by the Ukrainian oligarchs, if only them.

        Do you think the standard of living in the DPR and LPR is normal for the 21st century?
        We’ll even ask differently, in 20 years young people will work and what level of salaries will be? 500-300-100-10 euros?
        At the moment, the pension there with our money is 3000-4000 rubles.
        My opinion is that the region does not get out of poverty. Sorry for the people ... but there are pluses
        We can say to everyone “but we live in a zone free of fascism,” which the rest of Ukraine will only dream of with envy.

          This is average, and the minimum is 1898!

          "Do you think the standard of living in the DPR and LPR is normal for the 21st century" - for a warring territory in the 21st century.
          And Donbass - it's still not Zap. Outskirts with second-rate blood. Our people were formed for work, and be calm - a few years of peace, and everything will become better than before the war.

            General phrases, I specifically asked what s / n you are counting on ???
            But I think that all the time it will sound "we are at war", and in 10 and in 150 years. How do people live in those regions where they don't shoot? What companies are launching and what salary do they pay?
            Honestly, I'm tired of reading this optimism that is not based on an empty spot. Of course, one can be proud, but alas, there is nothing ... and will not. This is a zone of SPECIALLY frozen conflict. There will be no serious enterprises, factories, etc., poverty and pride. all that remains there ... It will never be Singapore.
            Just don’t think that I want it this way, on the contrary, my grandmother lives there .. she lives with our help, otherwise it’s impossible to live there. And before these events, in the Lugansk region, I spent every summer there. The city of Red Ray, from a prosperous city has turned into the most impoverished city of which I have seen. And there was no war there. So no need to tell. that there are some other people who will build life more beautiful than before. Everyone lived in the city .. and will be. God forbid s / n to $ 100 would be. And pensions of at least 5000 of ours.

        Do not turn from head to foot ... or from Kiev know better? They pulled out words (however, you most likely used the resources of ukroSMI) about the complete absence of investment development plans in the Republic's Development Program. Moreover, this was not a statement, but a question for the deputies!

    Now there is not a single country where everyone’s standard of living would be normal for the 21 of the 20th century.
    Almost everywhere there are rich and poor.
    Is that in the Libyan Jamahiriya absolutely everyone had a decent level, but dealt with it.
    Maybe in Qatar's petroleum dollar, but I can’t vouch for it.
    Only some countries cover this with beautiful tinsel, while others do not.
    In the United States, there are a lot of people living in containers ... But it’s not about spreading too much.

      And what is the AVERAGE (read, those who want to work) in Germany, France, Switzerland?
      What is the pension? No country in the world has a normal life ????? Just do not engage in demagogy that everywhere there are poor. Take for example a doctor and compare sn?
      And you say that nowhere in the world do doctors live like they should in the 21st century?

        It is extremely incorrect to compare salaries without taking into account prices.

        Yes, and the average salary is the same as the average temperature in the hospital.
        One burns hot, the other - a corpse, and on average - all is well.
        The rich man ate two hens, the poor man went to bed hungry. On average, everyone ate a chicken. Wonderful.
        I would focus on the minimum wage, and then taking into account the minimum cost.

    April 10, 2016 (the anniversary of the liberation of Odessa from the German and Romanian invaders) - my friends shot the video. See how terribly tormented by Russian-speaking people under the yoke of ukrofashistov:
