On August 12, 2016, in large conference hall of the hotel Shakhtar Plaza a solemn event dedicated to the Builder’s Day of the DPR took place in Donetsk. The event was attended by the Chairman of the People’s Council of the Donetsk People’s Republic Denis Pushilin, Minister of Construction and Housing Sergey Naumets, representatives of other ministries and departments.
At the beginning of the event Sergey Naumets read out the Head of the Republic Alexander Zakharchenko’s congratulation on the occasion of the Builder’s Day.
“Dear builders! I sincerely congratulate you on your professional holiday – the Builder’s Day of the DPR! Profession of the builder is very important for our Republic. It is you who restore damaged houses, repair social objects and Republican infrastructure, build new homes. During the fighting Ukrainian castigators have destroyed more than 24 thousand dwelling houses and social infrastructure facilities. And from the first days of fighting, you got to work.
The shellings of the AFU do not cease, and every day there are new destructions, which means that the front of your task expands. Today, much has already been done. People of the Republic and leadership of the DPR’s are grateful to our builders for their hard work!” the DPR Head’s text of congratulations says.
Minister of Construction and Housing of the Republic also congratulated the builders.
“When I drive around the city and see the photo of a crying child, who asks, “Dad, where were you when our city was being destroyed?” I am aware that every one of you is proud to be able to answer their children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, that you didn’t go anywhere, didn’t run away, didn’t leave. And sometimes risking your lives under fire, you restored the city, thus paying sacred duty to their Motherland – duty that every man, in my understanding, must pay. I congratulate you on your professional holiday and convey deep gratitude of the entire population of the Republic!” Sergey Naumets addressed to builders.
On behalf of the DPR People’s Council the Parliament Speaker of the DPR Denis Pushilin congratulated the builders on their professional holiday.
“Watching how enthusiastically, with dedication from a pile of bricks, metal, concrete and glass you construct buildings that bring the comfort of home and place for work for thousands of our citizens, I feel very positive emotions. I am well aware that we stand the high rate defined by the Head of the Republic in the recovery plan.
This is very important because we live in a country that is at war. However, we are now engaged in the restoration, construction, and you stand at the forefront in this process. I wish you to maintain stamina and faith in our young Republic,” the Chairman of the People’s Council of the DPR wished the builders.
