The grand opening of the representative office of the Public Movement “Donetsk Republic” took place today, on July 8. The representatives of the Crimean parliament and representative of the Public Movement “Donetsk Republic” in Crimea, Andrey Kozenko, participated in the event.
Head of the PM “Donetsk Republic” Executive Committee, the DPR People`s Council Chairman Denis Pushilin stressed the importance of this event in his opening address.
“A truly significant event happens today –the representative office of our leading social movement “Donetsk Republic” is opened. It`s no secret that we watched with agitation what was going on in the Crimea in spring, 2014, and supported the informed choice of the Crimea which returned to its historic homeland. It is very important and valuable that our brothers, the Russians, do not forget about us. The citizens of the Donetsk and the Lugansk People`s Republics will feel more secure when they rest in the Crimea, with the representative office of the leading native PM “Donetsk Republic”. It is a necessary and important step to establish and develop links between the public movements “Donetsk Republic” and “Russian Community of the Crimea”. We pay our highest tribute to the Crimean residents for their fraternal support”, Denis Pushilin stated.
Vice-speaker of the Crimean Parliament, representative of the social movement “Donetsk Republic” in the Crimea, Andrey Kozenko pointed out effectiveness of the interaction at the level of the public organizations.
“Opening the representative office of the PM “Donetsk Republic” in the Crimea, we put into practice the cooperation agreement between “Russian Community of the Crimea” and “Donetsk Republic” on June 4, 2016 within the framework of the Livadiya Forum. We are not going to confine ourselves to some oral declarations and documents signed, we work and fulfil all the ideas and plans set”, Andrey Kozenko said.
According to Andrey Kozenko, “Russian Community of the Crimea” assists in international recognition of the Donetsk and the Lugansk People`s Republics. Choice of a building for the representative office was not random, it is the building of “Russian Community of the Crimea”, it was the Organization of Russian compatriots about 2,5 years ago. Today, it is the public organization which acts within the legislative framework of the Russian Federation which, according to the Charter of “Russian Community of the Crimea”, assists in international recognition of the Donetsk and the Lugansk People`s Republics.
This representative office will be engaged in human rights activities in the humanitarian sphere. In August the Crimea will host the first group of children who can rest here. We are also forming a delegation of the State Council deputies and representatives of “Russian Community of the Crimea” that will soon attend the Donetsk People`s Republic”, Andrey Kozenko reported.
