Deputies of People’s Council together with colleagues from Russian Federation visit festive event for children
On December 26, a concert, which was dedicated to New Year and Christmas holidays and organized for children, was held in the Donetsk Republican Palace of Children and Youth Creativity. The event was attended by the Chairman of the DPR People’s Council Vladimir Bidyovka, Head of the “Donetsk Republic” faction Valery Skorokhodov, as well as guests from Russia – the deputies of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation Nikolay Kolomiytsev and Evgeniy Bessonov.
Within the framework of their visit, the State Duma’s deputies brought New Year’s gifts, which would be given to children of various ages and social categories.
ʺWe have been visiting Donbass for five years in a row and we have brought 34,000 gifts for children now. My colleagues have headed to Lugansk for the same purpose today. Also we provide medical treatment to children, 2,000 children visited a health camp called “Snegiri” this year,ʺ the deputy of the State Duma Nikolay Kolomiytsev said.
The Chairman of the People’s Council noted in an interview with journalists that such assistance from the colleagues from the Russian Federation was important, first of all, as moral support.
ʺSuch assistance is important for the Republic, because children will obtain the gifts. But its greatest importance is the feeling of the shoulder of brotherly people. It is difficult to overestimate the importance of this assistance, especially from the moral point of view,ʺ Vladimir Bidyovka said.
In addition to the New Year’s gifts, about 15 tons of food products will be given to Republican orphan homes.
