MOSCOW, May 10. /TASS/ A march to mark the Independence Day of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) will be held in Donetsk on Monday.
"Taking part in it will be peaceful civilians who will march along the city’s central street to Lenin Square, where first part of the festive events will be held, including a concert featuring local stars," the Donetsk news agency quotes Donetsk Mayor Igor Martynov as saying.
According to DPR Minister of Youth, Sports and Tourism Mikhail Mishin, the celebration will be opened by a column of Donetsk bikers. "About 20 bikers with DNP flags will lead the march along the city’s central street," he noted.
The Donetsk region held a referendum on self-determination on May 11, 2014. More than 75% of its residents took part in it, with nearly 90% voting for the sovereignty of the Donbass region.
