Dear compatriots, please accept my sincere and warm congratulations on Flag Day!
October 25 is a remarkable date for every resident of the Donetsk People’s Republic. Flag Day demonstrates the confidence, strength and determination of our young Republic. State symbols embody the honour and dignity for any country, and Flag Day is rightfully considered to be a holiday that unites the people.
More than five years on, the black, blue and red flag has been proudly flying over our homeland and representing its history. There are so many things in these three-coloured stripes: the nobility and courage of our citizens, their honesty, readiness to self-sacrifice and faith in our state.
On this wonderful day, I wish all residents of the Republic happiness, good health, prosperity and peace on our beautiful land.
Human Rights Ombudsman in the Donetsk People’s Republic Daria Morozova
