The humanitarian programme for the reunification of the Donbass people, initiated by the Heads of People’s Republics, is not just help to needy compatriots living in territories temporarily under control of Ukraine. This is a step aimed at preserving and restoring cultural, professional, social ties. This is another source of truth about how we live here, where we move and how we build our state.
The policy of genocide, chosen by the official Kiev, is leading Ukraine to decline, which causes concern on our part. It’s not just a socio-economic vector, we see the loss of the historical, cultural and spiritual heritage that shapes the foundations of the society. In my opinion, an important aspect of the humanitarian programme is the possibility of establishing stable social ties.
Already today various trade-union organizations, sports associations, creative collectives can come into contact with the profile ministries of the Republic to find ways of interaction in this situation.
It is important to remember that the people who have preserved their spiritual and cultural ties can never be defeated.
