News Overview of the social and humanitarian situation

The current week in the Republic was marked by the return of our defenders from enemy captivity. As a result of the past exchanges, 9 more DPR servicemen were released. Most of them are mobilized students. At the moment, the soldiers are receiving the necessary medical care. The facts of torture, beatings and moral humiliation were documented. Information about these inhuman and violating international humanitarian law actions on the part of Ukraine will be a base for future criminal cases after the end of the SMO.

At the same time, our defenders continue the offensive to the all sectors of the front. Thus, the joint forces of the SMO is advancing in the areas of Andreevka, Belogorovka, Artemovsk, Bakhmutsky, Vremevka, Zelenopolye, Soledar, Mayorsk, Maryinka, Nevelsky, Novobakhmutovka, Pervomaisky, Yakovlevka.

In such a difficult time, unity and patriotism are more important than ever for the Russian people. That is why the Day of National Unity, which Russia traditionally celebrates tomorrow, on November 4, is so significant. It emphasizes the catholicity of the people of the Russian world, our loyalty to the Fatherland and spiritual values.

It should be noted that culture has been and remains one of the key factors of our singularity. A striking example is theatrical art. Thus, the artists of the Donetsk State Academic Music and Drama Theatre named after M.M. Brovuna go on a large-scale tour of the Russian Federation. They will show their version of the rock opera Juno and Avos. The performances will take place on the stages of Tambov, Lipetsk, Ryazan, Vladimir, Kineshma, Dzerzhinsk, Cheboksary. The tour will end in the capital of Russia.
