The Speaker of the DPR Parliament congratulated the people of Makeyevka on the opening of the sports facility.
“It’s nice to see that new places for sports are appearing in the Republic. Before the outbreak of hostilities, events of this kind were a great event in the life of any city. It is pleasant to see that in our young state there are people who show such noble initiatives, who gladly support the deputy corps and local authorities.
The construction of new sports facilities will allow young people to devote more time to their health and actively engage in sports. If our children are healthy, then the whole Republic will benefit and we will become even stronger. I wish all the athletes victories, and the audience – interesting games and good impressions!” Denis Pushilin said.
Valery Skorokhodov in his comment to the press service of the People’s Council said that the construction of the sports ground has been conducted on the initiative and direct support of the DPR People’s Council deputy, Vladimir Chekun.
“This sports facility is a great gift for the athletes of Makeyevka. The initiative itself was put forward by our deputy Vladimir Chekun, who personally supervised and provided the necessary support in the process of construction.
I hope our youth will be able to channel their energy into a positive direction, thereby developing their sports skills,” the parliamentarian noted.
