January 11, 2016 French delegation paid a visit to the Donetsk People’s Republic. Visit’s goal – facts collection on war crimes from the part of Ukraine against Donbass citizens for further information sharing among wide public of France and Europe.

January 12 2016, with an assistance of the DPR Ministry of Foreign Affairs and DPR Ministry of Defense a trip was organized round Donetsk, Debaltsevo and Uglegorsk.

In Donetsk guests visited Donetsk airport, Oktyabrskiy settlement and Saint-Iversk nunnery. Destructions they saw created a deep impression on French delegation’s members. According to them, nobody says the truth in France on happening in Donbass. That is why they came here in order to see with their own eyes the consequences of hostilities on the territory of the Donetsk People’s Republic and share this information among their compatriots.

Besides French guests spoke to the local residents of Oktyabrskiy settlement, who hadn’t left their homes during the hostilities and saw with their own eyes all war atrocities: destruction of buildings, loss of close ones, absence of condition for living.

In Debaltsevo and Uglegorsk settlements a number of meetings were held with city administration and locals, the most suffered areas were also overviewed.

The DPR Ministry of Foreign Affairs expresses gratitude towards Administrations of Donetsk, Debaltsevo and Uglegorsk for help and assistance in organization of a French delegation’s trip round cities of Donetsk People’s Republic.
