The Consulate General of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in Naples officially expressed its solidarity with the residents of the LPR and DPR who asserted their right for self-determination. This was stated in the letter sent by the Consulate to the LPR Trade Union Federation.
The trade unions specified that the letter had been signed by the General Consul of the Republic of Venezuela in Naples Signora Amarilis Gutierrez Graffe.
“For more than two years the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics have been heroically and resolutely defending their right for self-determination and sovereignty of the region. And today men, children, women, senior citizens continue to be exposed daily to bloody shellings conducted by the Kiev regime; hospitals, schools, kindergartens, factories, coalmines and other institutes were destroyed, what had a negative impact on people's everyday life,” says the letter.
“We would like to call on all countries of the globe for peace. As we are taught by our outstanding leaders Simon Bolivar and the eternal commander Hugo Chavez, the struggle for peace, freedom, social justice and dignity of all oppressed peoples can be achieved in unity, unity and only unity!” says the statement.
The LPR Trade Union Federation’s chairperson Oleg Akimov explained that by such an appeal Venezuela had extended a “hand of friendship and support to the residents of Donbass”.
“The courageous struggle of Donbass people for their right to live in a free country awaked an echo in the hearts of the freedom-loving nation of Latin America. Solidarity knows no borders!” noted the Republic’s Trade Union leader.
