“At this moment, which is critical for all the people living in the Donetsk Coalfields Area and for all the citizens of the Donetsk People’s Republic, when hundreds of innocent people are dying and we are going through a humanitarian disaster […], we are turning to our compatriots to get a response from the bottom of their hearts,” says the text of the appeal published by the Novorossia news agency.
“Dear fellow-countrymen, do come to assist us, do help us with anything you can,” says the appeal signed by Supreme Soviet speaker Denis Pushilin.
“The Republic stands in need of strong, courageous young people and experienced soldiers capable of defending our homeland together,” he appeal says.
The authors of the document apply the term ‘compatriots’ to all the citizens of the Donetsk People’s Republic, “all the people who were born in Donbass (the Donetsk Coalfields Area), who live outside the boundaries of the Donetsk land, in other regions of former Ukraine, in Russia, and in other parts of the globe.”
“Fellow-countrymen are all the citizens of Russia, all the Russians by ethnicity, the Ukrainians who associate themselves with the united Russian World and Russian Civilization,” the appeal says.
