The path you have travelled is uneven and full of challenges. I hope that it will be the past soon enough and there will be a new era, era of development, for Donbass.
I led people and prosecutorial officials five year ago and therefore I know how difficult it is to think not only about yourself, but also about your team, which risks its life every single day, risks everything, but remains to be devoted to its Motherland up to the end. We defended our Crimea, we defended our truth and we succeeded.
Everyone here acknowledges that you have people to care about and that you have to think not only about yourselves, but also about ordinary citizens, who have no one to turn to.
And I wish you, from the bottom of my heart, to succeed,ʺ Natalia Poklonskaya said.

I thank you for your hard and systemic work. I know what it is like to be the member of the regional parliament – it is constant communication with people, solving problems in all available ways. But I am sure we will succeed.
