On May 3, a solemn presentation of membership cards of the public movement “Donetsk Republic” to employees of the Donetsk Railway was held in Ilovaisk. The event was attended by the Chairman of the DPR People’s Council, the Head of Central Executive Committee of the public movement “Donetsk Republic” Denis Pushilin.
Speaking to the audience, the Speaker of the DPR Parliament noted that the establishment of the Donetsk People’s Republic as a whole depended on the contribution of every member of the public movement “Donetsk Republic”.
ʺIt is quite simple to stay on the sidelines — to criticize, to give advice, to seek support from the leadership and decision-makers. It is much more difficult to take responsibility and initiative, to participate directly in the formation and building of a state.
We have to change the world around without fear of assuming responsibility if we want to live differently, to live the way we want to. When we were a part of Ukraine, we were used to stay on the sidelines, because then our decision did not depend on anything. More specifically, we were instilled that we could not change an established way of life. Then our destiny was decided by the Kiev authorities, oligarchs and corrupt officials, but a completely different time has come – the time when it is not only possible, but it is necessary to act. The future of our nation depends on absolutely every member of the public movement “Donetsk Republic”,ʺ the Chairman of the DPR People’s Council said.
Also during the event, Denis Pushilin responded to the topical questions of railways workers on public traffic, its aims and objectives, the negotiation process in Minsk and the state building of the DPR.
