Speaker of Parliament Vladimir Bidyovka attends meeting of “Donetsk Republic” public movement’s active core
On August 8, a solemn meeting of the “Donetsk Republic” public movement’s active core took place in the Republic’s capital, the topic of which was wrapping up month’s work. The event was attended by the Chairman of the DPR’s People’s Council Vladimir Bidyovka.
The speaker of the parliament urged the citizens of the Republic not to respond to informational provocations in an interview with representatives of republican mass media.
ʺThe first festival called “Young Guard” took place, in which working youth participated – representatives of various enterprises and organizations of the Republic. Were there any shortcomings in its holding? Yes, there were, and, in particular, they were in information sphere. Alas, we have lost sight of the fact that we live in times of war, the fact that there are people out there, who are waiting for the moment to represent the Republic in a negative light, to dampen the mood of our citizens.
I wish to say, however, that this event had plenty of positive moments, which were never shown. For some reason, they did not show how the participants of this event sang patriotic songs sitting by the fire, they did not show a commemoration meeting, where young people reminisced about the soldiers, who died both in the Great Patriotic War and in our modern war. They did not show sports competitions and the work of a platform called “Points of sense”, where the participants had an involved discussion about the Minsk agreements and the processes that took place in the Republic.
It is crucial that all participants, who work in different parts of our state, have become friends, so I am sure that we should continue to hold such festivals, while taking into account and addressing the deficiencies, which were present in its work,ʺ Vladimir Bidyovka stated.
