DPR, LPR to be included in federal 

school renovation program for 2023

November 24th, 12:41pm (DAN)

 

“United Russia” Party branches in the new regions

have to submit applications for school repairs... in 

order to include schools in the federal renovation 

program for the next year, United Russia General

Council Secretary, Andrey Turchak... said on 

Thursday.. after discussing the intermediate 

results of the program implementation
with 
Russian Education Minister,

 Sergey Kravtsov.

 

As of now, 1,100 schools across Russia have been

 repaired under the program. In 2023, authorities 

plan to repair more than 1,500 schools. The

 renovation project is funded from the 

federal budget.

 

“It is important, that our branches which were set up in 

the new regions actively gather school repair requests

 for 2023 and help estimate the number of facilities in

 need of repairs,” Turchak said. “I’m confident that

the federal ministry and the government, would 

quickly consider the requests, approve them

 and put into practice.”

 

This task has already been assigned to the Party 

l branches in the DPR, LPR and the Kherson and

Zaporozhye regions, he said, noting that the

new regions... had had many rundown 

education centres, even before the 

fighting began and that some of 

them.. had been damaged by 

Ukrainian artillery attacks.

 

The DPR de-facto joined the school renovation

 program in the spring. A number of repaired 

DPR schools opened their doors to pupils 

as the new academic year began, in 

September. The program, is being

implemented at the instruction 

of the Russian President, 

Vladimir Putin.

Russian integrated treatment 


systems --- help DPR cope
with 
water shortages


June 2nd, 11:35am (DAN) 


 


The water purified with Russian integrated treatment


 systems which were provided to the DPR, will be 


used as the main source in cases of water 


supply shutdowns, the Donetsk city 


administration head, Alexey 


Kulemzin, told the Donetsk 


News Agency, Thursday.


 


''The tests carried out by the city sanitary


epidemiological service, show --- that the 


treated water can be used for household 


and practical needs such as cleaning, 


laundering or face washing,'' 


Kulemzin said. 


 


''In the case that the water supply fully stops, 


it will be used as drinking water --- after 


settling and boiling.''


 


The Russian equipment can purify 408 cubic metres 


of water in 12 hours. Its maximum usage... reaches 


20 hours a day with an output of 680 cubic metres. 


 


Kulemzin said that there is no need to operate the


equipment at full capacity at present, but if the


situation worsens, the water treatment 


systems will be utilized to 


the maximum.


 


In mid-April, Russia handed over to the Republic SKO-


10 and SKO-8 integrated water treatment systems. 


They had been installed at three Donetsk water 


reservoirs and two ponds in Makeyevka. 


 


SKO purifies water.. from solid particles, suspensions, 


colloidal compounds, ferric iron, artificial substances,


organic poisons, radionuclides, bacteria and viruses.


 


The system can take water from any source. 


All treatment processes are fully automatic.


 


The authorities are making efforts to provide residents


 of frontline areas with water. Kulemzin said that at


 least 100 tons of drinking and service water are


 supplied daily to Donetsk’s Kievsky, Kirovsky,


 Kuibyshevsky and Petrovsky districts, 


Yelenovka, Staromikhailovka, 


Alexandrovka and other 


settlements that 


regularly come 


under fire.

Water problems in the DPR will be resolved only

''We need the conduit that runs from Slavyansk

''Until we take Slovyansk and this entire canal, we

Of course the song below can inspire if you
think you are brave, and know something
of suffering... but keep your heart and
soul intact... because you are the
son or daughter of a miner; yet
the film above will inspire you
and touch you and help you
understand so much more.


The Miners' Next Step


In 1912 - this year that will be 110 years ago -
some of the best minds in Wales met 
and
produced a pamphlet:- 'The Miners' Next
Step' to guide miners to a 
better world,
so working people can build 
a future
without parasites or back-stabbers,
or bosses, or short-sighted greed.


Just like the people of Donbass, who, before
Russia's revolution, lived in the Free Lands
and worked to build their world... with love.


Their vision became - unfairly, in my opinion -
labelled as anarcho-syndicalism..... so was
discounted as a way forward by socialists
in Wales and the U.K.


Yet their analysis is as relevant today,
as ever, on questions like true
democracy and leadership.

Their pamphlet can be accessed
online, and I would urge you to
read it! If you want to create a
fab future for your loved ones..


P.S. hope you like the song!


Image: The Miners' Strike mementos of love


Many many thanks to Richard Gould,
a true genius, who has his own
group, yet gave up his time
to generate the music.

Also to Ceri of Big Pit, who might not
necessarily have agreed with the
politics, but was so generous
with his time and photos.

And to the Clydach Vale lake and cafe,
which is the best nearby example
of what is possible!

And last, but definitely not least,
a massive thank you to Becs...
who has the smile to warm
the world - and the guts
and generosity - to
appear on video.

Image: WHAT IS POSSIBLE THROUGH LOVE

The people of Donbass (pictured) are united and organised..


The Donbass and Wales and
The Miners' Next Step


The 
people of Donbass run their own army, police and civil

affairs, and run a successful economy, based on soviet
style factory 
and mine local democracy --- so they
decide how 
their buildings and parks, facilities
and arts and 
crafts, fulfill their needs
and values.



Because the Kiev government - brought into being
by US money and the Maiden violent insurrection
and coup - helped to power, extreme nationalist
forces.. the rest of Ukraine is trapped and
being stripped of its material wealth.

Local oligarchs, bowing to a West desperate to
keep its old role, as ''the chosen ones'' - plus
a group of psychotic 'US 'neo-cons'', who
genuinely welcome a ''decider'' world
war, now run things in Ukraine.
 
Millions of Ukrainians are leaving the country...
as prices rise and their economy is stripped,
and the war on the Donbass, backed by
 US-led NATO, is an open sore.

All in the middle of  a pandemic
and the Earth being poisoned
against humanity...  well!

And the miners of Wales who met in 1912,
planned.. then explained... how to work 
and achieve a better life, by realising
the 
dreams of the vast majority.


Their solution was to use the power
of organisation, to create
wealth.

They, at that time, planned to have 
the
local 
lodges use their organisational

skills.. to set up many businesses...

but any organisation can, right now,
call on a number of volunteers to
gladly work an hour a month...
and many will be happy to do
more. From each, according
to their ability and to each,
according to 
their need. 

That's 
the spirit. 

It's simple... and the only way
to achieve a beautiful world,
is bit by bit, until it's done. 

If three people or a few hundred
give one hour a month...  then
an affordable child nursery
for working parents, or a 
centre to entertain the
children after school,
are all possible.

 The reward?

No-one has to fight against anyone,
or rob or borrow money, as people
will volunteer, either their time,
gifts, or 
money, to a cause
which 
benefits all in your
community.


Love will grow even stronger
in your community.

The better place everyone wants,
will grow slowly, in peace, 
like a baby grows in
the womb.


That's the miners' Next Step 2.


*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   

This does not mean, by the way, that 
public ownership is a bad thing, but
that creative thinking is necessary.

We have seen how nationalised industries
 lack democratic accountability, and can
be used badly, by both Labour & Tory
governments --- as milk cows by the
private sector, or to massage the
unemployment figures.

And time and time again, after the public
has paid for 
investments, to make them
profitable...  they are ''re-privatised''.  

There are alternatives to the old failed model
of public ownership, as seen in this country.
Worker co-ops, Foundations, even charity
status... could be tried.

There's nothing especially socialist, about
nationalisation - Tories, even fascists use
it, when private ownership has failed..

It's
successful public ownership and
control... that brings real lasting
benefits, that's what we want!

The 'National Coal Board' closed more
collieries down, than even Thatcher!

DPR Post issues stamps featuring 


Welsh engineer John Hughes, 

founder of Donetsk

April 2nd, 2021 at 2:28pm

 (DAN news agency) 




The DPR's State Post has issued a postal stamp featuring 

John James Hughes, a Welsh engineer, businessman and 

founder of the city of Donetsk, originally from Merthyr.

 

The stamp is decorated with Donetsk coat-of-arms and 

Hughes portrait. The stamp can be used for registered 

letters with receipt up to 20 gr, in accordance with the 

current fee rate of 44 rubles.

 

The number of copies issued is 30,024.

 

The envelope for the new stamp features pictograms 

representing industrial objects and clippings of 

Donbass geological map.

 

Hughes moved to the Russian Empire, in the summer of 1870, 

at the age of 55, as Millwall Iron Works Company received an 

order, from the Imperial Russian Government, for the plating 

of a naval fortress being built at Kronstadt on the Baltic Sea.

 

He immediately started to build metal works close to the 

river Kalmius, at a site near the village of Alexandrovka.

 

Over the next twenty years, the works prospered and
expanded, 
first under John Hughes and then, after
his death, in 1889, 
under the management of
four of his sons.

 

John Hughes died on June 17th, in 1889,
during 
a business trip to St Petersburg.

 

According to some sources, Hughes taught
himself 
to write, and could only read
capital letters.

power line, we set the maximum task to 

prepare the city for winter,”

 number of water points and water trucking
for
 residents, city mayor Alexey Kulemzin

said at a briefing on Monday, held at the 

instruction of the Donetsk People’s 

Republic Head, Denis Pushilin.

and Population Protection Department Vadim Kapustin

 said that Donetsk had launched 218 water points. 

 

Water is also supplied to 97 boiler houses. Service

 water is provided by five integrated treatment

February when its water supply facilities came 

under Kiev forces fire. Large towns... such as 

Donetsk, Makeyevka & Gorlovka introduced

scheduled water supplies.

 

 Tap water is unavailable in certain districts as repairs

 are not possible due to the proximity to the zone of 

fighting. To resolve the water problems, the 

authorities continue to look for alternative

 sources, actively build additional water 

supply lines and deliver drinking and 

service water to the population 

for free.

TO SHARE

 

Schools in the Donbas, Zaporizhia and Kherson regions,

will be provided with armed guards from September 1st

2022. This statement was made by the first deputy

 head of the Presidential Administration of the 

Russian Federation, Sergey Kiriyenko, 

specifying that funds for this 

purpose will be allocated

 by Moscow.

 

Kiriyenko said that, earlier, Russian President Vladimir

Putin gave a separate order to the Ministry of Internal 

Affairs of the Russian Federation and Rosgvardiya,

to ensure security measures for all the schools
in 
these regions.

 

"This means... that every school must have at least two

armed guards - at all times - starting from September 

1st. These are the Rosgvardiya, the Russian Interior

Ministry, the DPR and LPR interior Ministries, and

- specially selected - licensed private security 

companies," the deputy head of the Russian

 Presidential Administration said, during a 

video message to teachers in Donbass, 

on Saturday, August the 27th.

 

Kiriyenko noted that Moscow has already allocated

special funding for this task. "We understand - how

important security is to start the learning process.

We see that, sometimes, they shoot directly at 

schools. It is unacceptable - to risk the lives 

of teachers and students," he said, noting 

that, in some areas of the DPR, the 

Kherson region and parts of the 

districts of the Zaporozhye 

region, they are going to 

introduce combined 

training.

Plant, ” the press service said.

 

The water duct is comprised of two 6.5-kilometre

 lines. Specialists also laid two seven-kilometre 

6kW power cables, to feed two floating 

pumping stations.

 

The water duct will pump up to 30,000 cubic metres 

of water to the Velikoanadolskaya water treatment

 plant per day. This will help to maintain the water 

supply schedule to Volnovakha and the 

neighboring settlements of Olginka, 

Novotroitskoye and Vladimirovka.

 

Start-up works are currently underway.

 

In July, a water supply line was launched from

 Khanzhenkovskoye water reservoir to the 

Seversky Donetsk-Donbass canal --- to 

support the settlements experiencing 

water shortages. 

 

However, the Verkhnekalmiusskaya Water Treatment 

Plant stopped operation on August 20th, due to low 

water levels at the canal endpoint.

 

The DPR continues to experience water scarcity. 

Large towns such as Donetsk, Makeyevka, and 

Gorlovka introduced scheduled water supplies 

and arranged... the delivery of drinking and 

service water which is distributed for free.

we observed a year-on-year increase in the exports 

of pastry (up 5.8 percent), macaroni (by over 5
times), and grain and other agricultural 

products,” the press service said.

Russia to issue housing certificates 

to residents of the DPR and LPR 

whose homes were destroyed 

during military operations

July 29th, 3:02pm

https://en.news-front.info/

 

Russian President Vladimir Putin has supported the 

idea of Deputy Prime Minister Marat Khusnullin to 

issue housing certificates to people living in the

 Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics and

 whose houses were destroyed.

 

At a meeting with the president on Friday 29th July, 

Khusnullin said how the reconstruction of housing 

in the Donetsk and Luhansk people’s republics 

was planned. According to his message, 

what cannot be rebuilt... will be 

built anew.

 

“For those people who do not want to wait today, we

 offer and ask you to agree the option of paying out 

a housing certificate with the opportunity to buy 

them housing in the territory of the Donetsk 

Republic in any locality. I think there will 

be demand for that, too,” the Deputy 

Prime Minister suggested.

 

He also suggested possible mechanisms of lump-

sum payments and compensation for repairs.

 

“Let’s do it that way. But this should apply not only to

 the Donetsk Republic, but also, say, to the Lugansk

 Republic – where there is demand for it, and where

 people are waiting for it,” replied the Head of State.

 

Khusnullin said that responsible departments are 

currently drawing up a schedule of what is to be

 repaired over three years.

 

“We have already completed 85% of all the housing

 stock <…>, and everything we can restore, we will

 restore everything. All that we cannot repair, we 

will build. We will work out by years, where, 

when, and in what quarter we will build,” 

he said.

 

The deputy head of the Cabinet of Ministers 

noted that the approach to housing repairs 

had been found as well.

 

“We have agreed that to repair inside the flats 

or inside private houses we will also allocate 

six thousand rubles (per square metre),”

 – he explained.

 

Khusnullin also explained how Putin’s order
to
 elaborate the possibility of a one-time 

payment to such citizens was fulfilled. 


According to him, the mechanism 

approved during the floods in the

 Irkutsk region, was taken as
basis for this.

 

“You know it very well, I was in charge of the situation

 there and I regularly reported to you on these issues.

 This is the mechanism we are proposing to apply in

 these areas and we will provide payment to all 

those who want to be repaired,” he reported.

 

The Deputy Prime Minister gave assurances that 

the mechanisms will be worked out and

 submitted to the President.

republics. He clarified that it was now

Saint Vladimir’s land gathering 

was token of Rus might, 

prosperity — DPR Head

July 28th, 1:39pm (DAN)

 

 Donetsk People’s Republic Head, Denis Pushilin, has

 conveyed his best wishes to DPR residents, on the

 occasion of the 1,034th anniversary of the

Christianization of Rus.

 

“This date displayed historical truth to the world: the

 unity of Slavic peoples and the whole Russian world

 despite the aggressive policy of the West which is

 trying to divide the Russians,” Pushilin wrote on 

his official Telegram channel.

 

''Today, Moscow, Donetsk, Lugansk and Kiev are 

marking the Christianization of Rus. We are 

brothers in faith, history and culture. 

 

''These ties are invaluable. Prince Vladimir was 

the first gatherer of Russian lands; he brought 

together separate territories understanding 

that it was a token of Rus power and 

prosperity. He passed this wisdom 

to us, and the bequest to keep 

peace and unity between 

ourselves,'' he said.

 

The baptism of Rus determined the future of Russian

 statehood, in many ways, and influenced the 

formation of characteristic features of our

people, such as faith, mutual help and 

mercy, Pushilin said.

 

The DPR leader said that truth would ultimately

 triumph and that the seeds of discord would 

be rooted out as ''all of us, are linked with 

eternal imperishable values and love for

 our native land.''

 

The Day of the Baptism of Rus, is marked on July 28th

as the Day of Saint Prince Vladimir the Equiapostolic.

 

The Order of Saint Vladimir is a DPR state award 

which Pushilin established, by this date, 

last year.

Russia is taking emergency measures for the urgent

 construction of a gas pipeline --- to the liberated 

areas of the Zaporozhye region. The decision 

to supply Melitopol, Berdyansk - and other 

cities and villages - with Russian fuel
was
 made only 10 days ago, when
Kyiv 
deliberately turned off
the gas 
pipeline valve.

 

“More than 225 thousand households --- and this is more

 than half a million people -- are now deprived of access

 to gas. For the liberated territories, the gas pipeline is, 

without exaggeration, the number one infrastructure

 facility. People don’t even have anything to cook 

with now”, Vladimir Rogov, a member of the 

regional administration, told the 

VZGLYAD newspaper.

 

While urgent preparations are underway for laying the

 gas pipeline, the regional authorities are distributing

 electric stoves to the most needy categories of the 

population, Rogov said.

 

“So that the work... is not disrupted by sabotage of the

 Armed Forces of Ukraine, it was instructed to ensure 

maximum security of the facility,” emphasizes Rogov.

First 100 orphaned children 

from DPR --- to obtain fast
track
 Russian citizenship

July 1st, 1:06pm (DAN)




 Some 100 orphaned children and children without

 parental care from the Donetsk People’s Republic

 have applied for Russian citizenship using a fast 

track procedure.  It became possible thanks to

 the Russian president’s decree issued in May, 

said Eleonora Fedorenko, the child rights 

advisor to the DPR Head.




“The Russian president’s decree on fast track Russian

 citizenship for DPR and LPR residents dated 2019 did

 not include such a group as children from state-

supported organizations, ” Fedorenko said. 




“On May 30th, the decree was amended to include

 children from government institutions in the group

 eligible for fast track Russian citizenship. There’s

 already the first group of applicants, which 

numbers some 100 people.”




Russian citizenship conferment makes DPR orphaned

 children and children without parental care, equal in

 rights with Russian children, she added.




It will considerably ease the provision of assistance 

to them by Russia. “What is the benefit of Russian 

citizenship? It’s no secret that we send children 

to Russia for medical treatment, especially 

those with serious illnesses who cannot 

get medical assistance here. But this... 

costs money; we’re looking for money. 

But now they are citizens who enjoy 

equal rights with Russian children,” 

Fedorenko said.




On May 30th, Russian President Vladimir Putin 

signed a decree on fast track Russian citizen-

ship for orphaned children from the DPR, LPR 

and Ukraine. In April, Russia and the Donbass

 Republics coordinated the moves towards an

 agreement on the adoption of Donbass 

orphans in Russia.

Electric tortures mostly: 

DPR Ombudswoman... on how 

Ukraine treated DPR POWs

June 30th, 6:46pm (DAN)

 

 Donetsk People’s Republic ombudswoman, Darya

 Morozova, visited the DPR militiamen on 

Thursday, following their release
from 
Ukrainian captivity.

 

“Today, I spent the whole day talking with the
DPR
 defenders... who were released from
Ukrainian 
captivity in a prisoner swap,”

the ombudswoman’s office

quoted her as saying. 

 

“These are 47 people who were captured by Ukrainian

 forces, after the beginning of the special operation.”

 

“Unfortunately, most of them had to experience the

 brutal treatment by Ukrainian gunmen. Ninety-five

 percent of our fighters were tortured, beaten and

 subjected to other cruel treatment. Electric 

shock was the most frequent torture,” 

she said.

 

The documents of two servicemen were destroyed. 

Ukrainian courts forced the fighters to plead
guilty
 --- promising to put their names on
POW 
exchange lists.

 

 The ombudswoman said that the released fighters

 differed in the condition of their health and that 

nearly everybody had health problems. Many 

will be treated for the complications that 

developed after gunshot wounds or
fractures. They will receive

 full assistance.

 

“I’m very grateful to everybody who helped set 

our guys free. I again, draw the attention of

 international human rights organizations:

 to the critical situation with the rights 

of prisoners of war in Ukraine.

 

 I believe, that the numerous testimonies of our

 servicemen --- are hard arguments for taking 

proper response measures,” Morozova said.

 

 “Having ignored - again - the exposed facts of illegal

 methods of pressure, the international community

 will actually abet Kiev’s war crimes.”

 

On Wednesday, the DPR and Ukraine held the first

prisoner exchange, after the beginning of the 

special operation, under the 144 for 

144 formula.

DPR, Ukraine exchange POWs 

for first time after beginning

The Donetsk People’s Republic and Ukraine have

 exchanged prisoners of war... for the first time 

after the beginning of the special operation, 

under the 144 for 144 formula, DPR Head

 Denis Pushilin said.

 

“Today, we’re bringing home 144 DPR militiamen 

and Russian servicemen captured by the 

enemy,” Pushilin said.

 

“We handed over to Kiev as many POWs from
Ukrainian armed formations, most of them 

were wounded. Some are privates from 

nationalistic battalions: they are in a 

sorry condition with heavy wounds, 

amputated limbs and other 

complications.”

 

There are very valuable servicemen and mobilized

fighters... among the people released from 

Ukrainian captivity. “Most of them were 

wounded -- and need urgent quality 

medical assistance. I wish them 

soonest recovery, ” he said.

 

Earlier, DPR ombudswoman Darya Morozova told the

 Donetsk News Agency that the DPR was preparing 

POW lists for a possible swap with Ukraine.

 

The DPR and Ukraine last exchanged prisoners in April

 2020.  Donetsk passed nine people to Kiev and got 

ten.  Later on, the prison exchange issue was put 

on hold, due to Ukraine’s unwillingness to 

drop criminal charges against the 

released detainees.

Impressively large, fast 

construction projects 

in western Mariupol

June 21st, 2:17pm (DAN)

 

Less than a week ago, Mariupol launched a large

construction project to build a neighbourhood of 

12 five-storey apartment houses with an 

outpatient hospital... by the winter.

 

Hundreds of people are working on the construction

site on the premises of the former Azovsky market. 

They pour concrete for foundations and

simultaneously break ground for new 

ones, unload construction materials 

and lay service lines, working 

around the clock.

 

The Russian Defense Ministry is project supervisor.

 It has a considerable experience in building

 infrastructure, for example prefabricated 

medical centres which mushroomed 

during the coronavirus pandemic.

 

Tractors, trailer trucks, cranes, shouts of builders 

and the sound of working machinery create an 

atmosphere which would normally cause 

irritation and discomfort.

 

But here, despite the background of frames 

of abandoned apartmentbuildings which 

had been damaged by Ukrainian gun-

men fire, this activity makes one 

happy as it gives hope for the 

revival of the city and its 

return to normal life.

 

Earlier reports said that it is planned to build almost

100,000 square metres of living space (over 1,000
apartments) in the area. Half of the houses will 

be commissioned by October, and the rest 

together with the hospital a month later. 

 

Construction projects are implemented by companies

 from three Russian regions in other parts of Mariupol.

 

Mariupol is the largest city on the Sea of Azov coast, 

a key Donbass metallurgy centre and seaport. It was

 liberated from Ukrainian troops on April 21st, 2022. 

 

The city housing stock and infrastructure sustained

significant damage. Damage assessment is under-

way. Water and electricity supply is being restored 

in the city. The seaport resumed operation in

 late May.

 Republic denies registration to the legal entities

 whose executives, founders or beneficiaries are

 residents of the unfriendly or offshore countries.

 

The list of these countries is attached to the

 document and includes Great Britain, the 

USA, EU countries and Ukraine (except

 the liberated areas).

 

The legal entities which have completed the

 registration procedure have two months to 

dismiss the persons or founders that 

belong to the above groups. The 

legal entity will stop operation

 if it fails to comply with these

 regulations.

 

The Administration of the DPR Head explained: 

the measures envisioned in the GKO resolution 

are aimed at ensuring DPR economic interests

 and security.

''We are going to our kin, and return our near and dear

Svetolodarsk to the fold; it has been cut off from the

town of Debaltsevo, for so many years,'' Zakharevich

said.  ''It's our native land. We will open the road to
traffic, 
and I will go there in person; construction
teams will 
arrive for repairs. They will also carry
out repairs, 
after yesterday’s dam explosion,
which damaged 
windows in houses; we will
carry out the 
repairs quickly.''




The authorities will promptly deal with the issues 

of pension and welfare payments in the town.

''The services are on stand-by. There’s much 

work to do,'' he added. 




Russian coalition forces reportedly entered

Svetlodarsk, on Tuesday morning. The 

Debaltsevo mayor confirmed to the 

Donetsk News Agency that the 

Svetlodarsk Town Hall, is 

flying a Russian flag.

Activists replaced the Ukrainian flag on the Town Hall - 

with the flag of the DPR. However, the Ukrainian army 

took the town in the summer of 2014. The town

 accommodates the Uglegorskaya thermal 

power plant, one of the largest

 improved, after the liberation of the larger 

part of the city. Water delivery has been 

arranged for the population, since. 

Several dozen tons of water are 

delivered to Mariupol, daily.
