On August 14, a solemn award ceremony of presenting membership cards to the employees of the enterprise (branch №2 ZAO “Vneshtorgservis”) took place in the auditorium of the Yenakiyevo metallurgical plant.
The event was attended by the Chairman of the DPR People’s Council, the Head of the Central Executive Committee of the “Donetsk Republic” public movement Denis Pushilin, the People’s Council deputies Petr Shimanovsky and Vyacheslav Tikhonenkov, the Head of the Yenakiyevo City Administration Dmitry Lysenko, the Manager of Branch №2 ZAO “Vneshtorgservis” Vasily Ivasenko.
During the meeting, Denis Pushilin emphasized the importance of the consolidation of society, to which the speaker said that the Donetsk Republic was working on.
ʺWhen the foundation of our Republic was laid, we decided to withdraw from the party system because the parties had exhausted themselves in Ukraine’s years of existence. None of the current political structures of Ukraine cares about ordinary people, acting solely in the interests of the oligarchs. There are people who were not afraid to take responsibility for the future of our young nation in the team of the Head of the DPR. We have many unresolved problems so far, given the influence of external pressure, which can be attributed to various kinds of blockades organized by the Ukrainian side.
If we look back and remember the days of the Soviet Union’s collapse, it may be noted that its collapse was not carried out by weapons, but by jeans and chewing gum. Our goal is not to succumb to Western values. We count on your understanding and support. We need your initiative. The future depends only on us, in which we and our children will live,ʺ Denis Pushilin said.
Petr Shimanovsky, in his turn, congratulated the employees of the Yenakiyevo metallurgical plant on joining the Head of the Republic’s team.
ʺI congratulate all those present on joining the public movement! We have a lot of work ahead of us, we have the most ambitious tasks that we must do together,” the deputy said.
Vyacheslav Tikhonenkov expressed the hope that the Yenakiyevo metallurgical plant would be fully operational by winter 2017 in an interview with journalists.
ʺToday, in a solemn setting, we presented the membership tickets and merit badges of the public movement “Donetsk Republic” to the plant employees. The employees of the Yenakiyevo metallurgical plant decided to join our team, and this indicates that the movement is gaining strength.
The Republic’s industrial enterprises increase their production every day. I hope the metallurgical plant will have worked at full capacity by the winter,ʺ the parliamentarian said.
