The event "New Year and Christmas postcards exchange between the children of Donbass and Europe" is held at the initiative of the Representative Centers of the Donetsk People’s Republic in European countries under the auspices of the DPR Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In its framework, schoolchildren from Donbass send greeting cards to their peers in European countries, who in turn transferred similar messages to the DPR children.

Today, the first parcel with postcards was received within the framework of this event. Schoolchildren from such Finnish cities as Helsinki, Hämeenlinna, Lahti and Nurmes sent 70 New Year and Christmas postcards for their Donbass peers. In the nearest future, these cards will be given to the pupils of the schools of the Donetsk People's Republic.

The DPR Ministry of Foreign Affairs thanks the Finnish like-minded people and the Representative Centre of the Donetsk People’s Republic in Finland, as well as the Finnish-Russian Association "Rufi" and its chairman Daria Skippari-Smirnova for participating in this event and their readiness to support the inhabitants of Donbass in difficult moments.
