The Head of the Donetsk People's Republic Alexander Zakharchenko congratulated the inhabitants of Donbass on the New Year.
"I will not speak about war. For all of us, the war has become a routine fact of life. Today I want to speak about peace, because the peace is what we are fighting for, working for, building and restoring. We are building, despite the war," the congratulation says. "Dear fellow countrymen, I wish you all happiness and goodness, love and joy. Let 2018 be the year of victories and achievements for the benefit of our Motherland."
The Head of the DPR noted that the year 2017 was rich, full of positive transformations and important events. According to Zakharchenko, the Republic managed to resume the work of the largest enterprises, preserve the production potential of the state, save working places, and increase revenues to the budget.
"In order to live and develop, we must look a few steps forward. Therefore, it is very important not to lose the younger generation, to implant in them that spark, that fire of love for the Motherland, which help us live, build and fight," the Head of State said.
