Dear veterans of the Great Patriotic War and residents of the Republic!
I wholeheartedly congratulate you on the 78th anniversary of the liberation of Donbass from the German fascist invaders!
This sacred holiday has a special meaning for all of us. Because that’s the great and immortal exploits of the valiant soldiers of the Red Army that bought the gift of freedom to all of us!
The heroic efforts and perseverance, loyalty to duty and selfless service to the Fatherland that were demonstrated by the front-line soldiers and home front toilers during the Great Patriotic War, are the highest example and the correct guideline, give strength to resist aggression and contribute to the restoration and revival of our native land.
We will never forget that the opportunity to live and develop, just to exist that we have exclusively thanks to the valour and sacrifices of the liberators of Donbass. And today their grateful descendants honour the covenants of their fathers. Just like then, 78 years ago, they are fighting for the freedom of their land!
Happy Holiday! I wish all citizens peace, goodness and health!
