DONETSK, October 19. /TASS/. A thirty-metre balck-blue-red flag of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) was hosted on Sunday in central Donetsk on the occasion of one of the first national holidays, the Flag Day.
“Regrettably, we have too few holidays now, but this holiday we will remember for years to come. Each of the occupied cities - Slavyansk, Mariupol, Kramatorsk, and others - will host our flag sooner or later,” DPR Prime Minister Alexander Zakharchenko said.
According to a TASS correspondent, about 2,000 people gathered on Sunday in Donetsk’s central Lenin Square. Representatives from various DPR districts carried in a giant flag measuring 30 by 14 metres made by residents of all towns of the republic. Denis Yurchenko, a bronze medalist of the Olympic Games in Beijing, and several other city residents made a number of final symbolic stitches. On a signal from Zakharchenko, the flag was hosted on the faзade of one of the buildings surrounding the suare.
“We have withstood much and are yet to withstand much. We are a united people and we shall overcome anything,” Zakharchenko said. “We will make our city better, we will restore everything that was destroyed and will live in the most beautiful city - let our enemies be envious.”
No violations were reported during the festivities.
