Dear residents of the Republic!
On behalf of the Human Rights Ombudsman’s Office I sincerely congratulate you on the Flag Day in the Donetsk People’s Republic!
October 25 is an important date that unites all residents of the Donetsk People’s Republic and embodies the spirit of our people. The flag of the Republic, as well as the coat of arms and the national anthem, is the main symbol of the state. It is highly important that every citizen of the Donetsk People’s Republic respect his/her national symbols and be proud of them.
Tricolored flag of the Donetsk People’s Republic is the embodiment of our independence, the present and the future of our Motherland. The black color symbolizes fertile land and coal of Donbass; the blue color is the symbol of the people’s spirit and the water of Azov Sea; the red color symbolizes the blood shed for the liberty of the people.
Patriotism, love for the Motherland and a feeling of unity warm the hearts of Republic citizens, as the national anthem sounds and the national flag flutters.
On this remarkable day I wish you true happiness, good health, prosperity and peaceful skies in the Donetsk People’s Republic!
Human Rights Ombudsman in the Donetsk People’s Republic Daria Morozova
