On the 9th of February an event in support of Donbass people "Cooperation. Instead of confrontation" took place in Germany. The main purpose of the event was to draw attention of the world society to the escalated shellings of the DPR territories, death of civilians and destruction of the infrastructure.
Thomas Rudy from Thuringia´s regional parliament organized the event. He personally visited Donetsk People`s Republic in July 2016 and witnessed how biased Western media are when covering events in the region.
The event was visited by more than 100 guests. Among them - MP Olaf Kiesslich (regional parliament of Thuringia), Dr. Robby Schlund, deputy chairman of AfD Thuringia, Dr. Raissa Steinigk from the organization “Zukunft für Donbass” (Future for Donbass) and Manuel Ochsenreiter, director of the German Center for Eurasian Studies.
There was also a discussion of the origins of Donbass conflict, humanitarian and military operations in the area. Organizers of the event presented the photographs reflecting the harsh reality of life in the DPR.
At the end of the conference participants called on the international community to assist the diplomatic settlement of Donbass conflict.
