Dear workers of culture and art, I congratulate you on your professional holiday!
Art and culture play an important role in society, as well as in shaping the identity. This is not only the quintessence of the experience of previous generations and a determiner of future changes, but also an indicator of a healthy nation.
The active citizenship and fortitude that cultural workers of the Donetsk People’s Republic have demonstrated in the most difficult years of its formation and development are a good example of love for the Motherland and dedication. Despite the difficult military and political, socio-economic situation, you have managed to preserve and consolidate the cultural heritage of Donbass. The Republic is successfully integrating with the Russian Federation and developing its international relations, which increases the possibilities for sharing information about the developments in Donbass and contributes to the recognition of the Donetsk People’s Republic by the world community.
I express my sincere gratitude for your dedication and commitment. I wish you good health, inspiration and creative achievements. Peace and well-being to you and your loved ones!
Human Rights Ombudsman in the Donetsk People’s Republic Daria Morozova
