The DPR and LPR and Russian writers presented the “Donbass Choice” collection of stories to the public on Tuesday.
The book was unveiled by the Union of Russian Writers co-chairman Nikolay Ivanov, the LPR Union of Writers chairman Gleb Bobrov and the DPR Union of Writers member Vladimir Skobtsov who leads the “Big Donbass” project. Several writers who contributed to the project were present at the ceremony.
“It’s a unique book. As photographers adjust white balance before starting to take pictures, so is balance observed here. Everything is here: war and peace, life and death. It consolidates the writers with the theme of serving one’s Motherland, the theme of pain, sympathy, and compassion,” Ivanov said.
"We understand that the most trusted solider in the war is the one carrying his commander’s flask. Donetsk and Lugansk writers are like the fighters carrying water, and this reviving gup will help us go on,” he said.
The 672-page book comprises stories by 61 authors. The contributors include representatives of the DPR, the LPR, Russia, Serbia, Israel, Ukraine and Kiev-controlled part of the Donetsk region. The stories belong to difference genres, such as prose, poetry and drama. The book’s print run is 1,000 copies.
