A festive multi-thousand march on the occasion of the third anniversary of the founding of the Donetsk People's Republic began today in Donetsk. About 50 thousand people from all the DPR cities and districts are participating in the action.
The march started from Lenin Square in central Donetsk. It will proceed along Artyoma Street to the republic’s Olympic Sport Centre where a concert is planned featuring Russian celebrities.
Some 100 Night Wolves Club bikers and the wind band of the city’s Philharmonic Society are leading the march.
It is followed by a column headed by the acting Donetsk administration head Alexey Kulemzin, delegations from the DPR towns and districts, and activists of the Donetsk Republic and Young Republic public organisations. The participants are carrying the DPR flags and flowers.
The DPR Head Alexander Zakharchenko, People’s Council chairman Denis Pushilin and guests from Russia, Abkhazia and South Ossetia and LPR are on the platform in Lenin Square greeting the marchers.
