75 years ago the German troops has invaded in the USSR bearing a death, suffering, pain and destruction. This day will remain forever in the people’s memory as a starting point of the monstrous war that claimed lives of millions of people and perished hundreds of thousands of innocent women, old people and children.

Unfortunately, the history lessons are not always comprehended and acquired in a proper way. During these two years the citizens of the Donetsk People’s Republic have learned in a full measure all severities of a war period, all anguish of bereavement of relatives and close ones in the cruelest war.

In this tragic date for all Slavonic peoples we mourn deeply with those who lost relatives during Great Patriotic War. We will always remember the heroic feat of the Soviet people.
