You are one of us! - Donetsk People's Republic Armed Forces


You are one of us! - Donetsk People's Republic Armed Forces

Patriotic sentiment, the call of military duty, the love for Motherland should be right here, not on paper, but over here, in one’s heart. We live here, we were brought up here and we defend our land. 

As the great military commander Alexander Suvorov puts it, a pint of sweat saves a gallon of blood. And the more our soldier sweats at a proving ground, during military exercises, the fewer chances he might have to spill blood on the battlefield.

- Army is a unified whole, a family.

The point of utmost importance is self-development, training should never stop. All the commanders’ orders should be executed in every particular and without question.

- Be yourself. 

Struggle against difficulties as one. It’s the first step on the way to a feat, and thus to immortality. 

- Cowardice will never make you immortal.

Dear compatriots!

Take my sincere congratulations on February 23 – Defender of the Fatherland Day! It is a special holiday for our State. Today residents of our Republic are fighting for freedom and independence up in arms. We battle and win! And participation of each resident of the Donetsk People's Republic is important in this people’s struggle. 

This day I want to congratulate and thank for service not only military personnel protecting our boundaries. Thanks to all the Donbass residents, patriots of the Russian world who have remained committed to their land, Homeland, and history. The Donetsk People's Republic appreciates the toil of labour fronts' workers, teachers, doctors, housing and utility services – all those who didn't surrender to the criminal Nazi regime which had come into power in Kiev. Today all of us, everyone in his/her position, are defending ideals of justice, freedom and equality. And I am sure – the God is on our side, the Truth is with us, and it means that we shall win!

On February 23 it is customary to congratulate men. But this day we cannot but spare a thought of our heroic women who rose to defend our Homeland on equal terms with men. Hundreds of women are serving in the ranks of the Armed Forces of the Donetsk People's Republic. Daily risking life, our sisters, wives, mothers show miracles of dedication and courage. For example, last year, for the first time in the country, a woman was awarded with the Star of the Hero of the Donetsk People's Republic – Yekaterina Panfilova who had brought hundreds of wounded soldiers of our army from the battlefield on her delicate shoulders.

Defender of the Fatherland Day, as well as Victory Day, is a tearful holiday for us. Unfortunately, war claims lives of the best. Our friends, fellow soldiers perish. This day I would like to pay a tribute to the memory of all those who gave life for the future of the Donetsk People's Republic. We bow down before you. Your feat, your sacrifices will not be forgotten by descendants…

Dear fellow countrymen, on this holiday I wish you all the best health, overwhelming happiness and wellbeing! Let prosperity always reign at your homes, harmony - in your hearts, and only peace – in the skies over our Fatherland!


Alexander Zakharchenko

The Head of the Donetsk People's Republic

In “OCCUPIED” by Ukies Kominetrnovo (VIDEO)

It is their imagination, or probably they encourage their military units in such a way.

I do not understand the sense of this lies, when they do no have real victories, they invent them.

Shells landed in the night from 3 to 4 February. Ukiees used howitzers.

Colonel Halyavkin Yuriy Abatolievich. We are in Kominetrnovo that was as if “occupied” by Ukrainian side.

Here you see the shop that is working, it was shelled. You can buy there all necessities, here is the village, however, Ukrainian troops are not here.
