Denis Pushilin, Vladimir Bidyovka and People’s Council’s deputies participate in festivities dedicated to 170th anniversary of Novoazovsk
On 13 July, a celebration called “Sea fields” dedicated to the 170th anniversary of the town took place on Lenin square in Novoazovsk. The event was attended by the Head of the DPR Denis Pushilin, Chairman of the DPR’s People’s Council Vladimir Bidyovka, People’s Council’s deputies Olga Gryaznova, Alexander Kamyshov, Claudia Kulbatskaya, Natalia Chekareva and Vladimir Chekun, Head of the Novoazovsk District Administration Oleg Morgun, Acting Head of Novoazovsk Town Administration Alexander Balandin.
Denis Pushilin congratulated citizens and guests of the town on the holiday. He emphasized that Novoazovsk had always been one of the strategic outposts in the southern part of the Russian Empire and this town played a significant role in the life of the Donetsk People’s Republic today.
ʺDear compatriots! I congratulate you on Town Day! This is a land of amazing, active and sympathetic people, the people, who are deeply worried about their land, the Republic. The people, who multiply such concepts as patriotism, courage and honour every day.
The history of Novoazovsk began when the westernmost Cossack Army of the Don was formed here. Novoazovsk played a strategic role as a southern outpost of the great power. It had an important military and trade and administrative significance for Russia. And today, your district has acquired another special role for our state – it provides not only the citizens of the Donetsk People’s Republic, but also of the Lugansk People’s Republic with sanatorium treatment and resorts.
Novoazovsk is a nice and cosy town. I wish this town to blossom and develop every day! And this depends not only on city and republican authorities, but also on each of you. We are all responsible for what future generations will get.
I wish you peace, good, love and well-being. Happy Holiday, Novoazovsk!,ʺ the Head of the DPR addressed to an audience.
Vladimir Bidyovka congratulated the participants of the event on the town’s anniversary calling it a town of work, talent, strength and courage.
ʺDuring the 170 years of its existence, Novoazovsk from the village of Novonikolayevskaya, which had less than a thousand inhabitants, has become a full-fledged town with great industrial potential. The tireless work and sincere love of the residents for their home turned it into a town of district importance.
Novoazovsk went through tough times with dignity and honour: the Great Patriotic War, collapse of the Soviet Union, after which the Ukrainian authorities plundered all what had been built by older generation for 23 years and the current war – for the right to be themselves and to go back to historical roots. Unique people live here, thanks to which the town is reborn, but also rapidly develops.
I have no doubt that Novoazovsk and its residents will face further progress and new achievements. And no matter how difficult the path may be, it will inevitably lead to the well-being, peace and prosperity of our Motherland. We will achieve everything we dreamed of, because there are no unattainable goals for Donbass,ʺ the Chairman of the DPR’s People’s Republic said.
The programme of the event included a musical called “Crimson Sails”, performance of on-stage performance groups from the Donetsk People’s Republic and festive fireworks.
