Today, on September 6, Aix-en-Provence court refused to abolish the state registration of the DPR Representative Center in Marseilles (France) without seeing any violations of French and international legislation in the Сenter's activities. Such a decision can be called as a big event, which means that the authorities of the European countries, despite the pressure from the Ukrainian foreign policy departments on them, are beginning to more objectively and fairly perceive the Donetsk People's Republic, its people and the right to self-determination.

We unequivocally welcome the outcome of the case on the Center in France and we consider the positive decision as the merit of Mr. Fayard and all the members of the Representative Center, who not only defended the future of our center, but also proved that the people of Donbass have huge support abroad. We are sure that this event will be instructive for all the persons, who are still trying to call us "terrorists" and "separatists" and will prevent the dissemination of truthful information about events in the Donetsk People’s Republic.
