Russian flag raised over Donetsk

Today, over a number of administrative buildings of Donetsk, instead of the national flags of the DPR, the flags of the Russian Federation were raised.

The tricolors were raised on a trihedral pylon in the central square of the city at the monument to Lenin, over the building of the People’s Council of the DPR and over the dome of the Krupskaya library.

Thus, the Donetsk People’s Republic expressed gratitude for the support that Russia has provided since 2014, from the moment when the Ukrainian army began military operations against its fellow citizens in eastern Ukraine.

The event was timed to coincide with the double anniversary Day of the flag of Russia: this year marks the 350th anniversary of the first mention of the tricolor in historical documents and 25 years since its first celebration.

For the first time, the flags of the Russian Federation were raised above Donetsk in 2014, when residents of the miners' region expressed their rejection of the armed coup in Kiev, known as the Maidan, and committed by the Nazis and nationalists with the support of the United States and the European Union.

Recall that the first mention of tricolor banners is found in decrees of Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich of 1669, and the tricolor became the official symbol of the Russian Federation in 1991, by the resolution of the emergency session of the Supreme Council of the RSFSR, and the holiday was established by order of the President of the Russian Federation on August 20, 1994.

    Thus, the Donetsk People’s Republic denied its own national identity ...

      Igor, and what is their "identification" by nationality? Answer, if this does not complicate you ... And then I don’t remember something of such nationality - “Donetsk” (not to be confused with belonging to the place of residence).

    They are Russian, Russians have no other identification.

    All of today's problems in the "post-Soviet" space stem from a situation in which the historical events of 91-93 - political, economic, social, military, are not given an assessment in MOST Russia.
    Because of this, so many nations that were members of the USSR, Till now, cannot determine their status.
    An assessment will be given, which means that, based on this, both foreign and domestic policies will be built, both in Russia itself and in the peoples surrounding it!
    And so, we ourselves - in the Russian Federation - are not fish and not meat ... It seems that we left the USSR, but at the same time we are holding ALL in the orbit of our political, economic, social, cultural and religious rotation. Let’s, gentlemen, the leaders of the state, be determined - or we, nevertheless, are ALL EXTREMELY (and then ANY neighbor can be safely defined as the enemy - the actions of the amers there directly lead to this), or WE ALL are residents of ONE space - economic, political, cultural, social - TOTAL AND EVERYTHING ...
    And then how many people of Donetsk, Lugansk, Transnistria, South Ossetia ... you can scoff at - without accepting them, and without giving them FULL FREEDOM!

    It’s time to return the Donbass to Russia ... It is time to end with the occupation of Russian lands by any impudent non-Russia!
