The head of Makeevka administration Valery Lyakhovets officially presented a badge to Denis Pushilin during the event.
ʺThe Chairman of the DPR People’s Council Denis Pushilin is bestowed the title of honorary citizen for his personal contribution to the defence of fatherland, special merits in social, public and political activity, peace-building, development of the DPR’s statehood, active public activity and significant contribution to the development of Makeevka,ʺ Valery Lyakhovets said.
According to Denis Pushilin, every citizen of the Republic has the reverential attitude to his native land.
ʺIt is very surprising and pleasant. Of course, I have the greatest respect for Makeevka: I was born there, I grew up, my conscious life was there and that is why I always try to come and take part in important events.
I cannot maintain aloofness, and I guess that is absolutely normal for every citizen of the Republic – to think about native land tremblingly. We are well aware that we now have a responsibility of the whole Republic, but there are places that you have no right to bypass. Thank you so much!ʺ the Chairman of the DPR People’s Council said.
