The DPR MFA Head commented on political pressure on DPR Representative center (diplomatic mission) in Italy

13 January 2017

The political pressure on the work of Representative center of the Donetsk People's Republic in the city Turin, in Italy will be recognized as discrimination and violation of democratic liberties. 

That is the opinion of Acting Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Donetsk People’s Republic Natalia Nikonorova about the situation. 
Natalia Nikonorova: " We know, there are several members of Italian government party, who attempt to put Representative center of Donetsk People's Republic in Turin under pressure. For today this representative center has already lent us aid, with it's work in information sphere, defense of our citizens’ rights abroad, and also consolidation of the civic community. That's why we think, that any kind of pressure, and any attempt to influence the work of Representative center is, first of all, a violation of human rights." 

DPR MFA Head had also reminded one more time, that Representative center of DPR was registered as non-profit organization according to the Italian legislation. 

For today same Representative centers also exist in Czech Republic and Finland, and our Ministry of Foreign Affairs does its best to make the Donetsk People's Republic known to the international community.
