“Dear journalists, I congratulate you on the upcoming holiday – the Day of Mass Media and Printing Workers!
You are incredibly important for the Donetsk People’s Republic, especially now that Ukraine is intensifying the information war against us. Much needs to be conveyed to people. It is necessary to inform correctly, covering the difficulties that we have, and that need to be corrected. The media is a tool of openness, transparency of power, and I ask you to use this tool like a scalpel, professionally and carefully,” Denis Pushilin said.
During his speech, People’s Council Chairman Vladimir Bidyovka noted a significant professional growth and improvement of the republican media’s quality of work.
“Dear friends! From the bottom of my heart I congratulate you on your professional holiday!
As it was said today by the head of state, you have to work in conditions of war, including the information war, which is no less cruel and dangerous for humanity.
For five years, we have made a big step forward, including, as evidenced, the attitude of people in foreign countries, changing their perspective on what is happening in the Donetsk People’s Republic for a more positive way. Thank you for that! You are doing a great job and I am sure that only victories are waiting for us in the information field,” the parliament speaker said.
During the official part, the Chairman of the People’s Council awarded the best media representatives for high professionalism, diligent work, prompt coverage of events and the development of the information field of the Donetsk People’s Republic, as well as on the occasion of the Day of Media Workers.
