The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Donetsk People's Republic expresses its gratitude to the leadership of the Republic of Abkhazia for a significant step - the official recognition of our state.
This event is of particular importance for the Donetsk People's Republic, because the residents of Donbass since 2014 have been walking hand in hand with the fraternal people of Abkhazia, who came to our aid in the most difficult days. It is a great honor for us to be friends and partners of Abkhazia.
Yesterday's decision by President Aslan Bzhaniya was a natural result of cooperation between our states, which has been fruitfully developing for almost 8 years now.
We are confident that after official recognition our cooperation will reach a new level and serve as a solid basis for strengthening and expanding the already established areas of joint activity.
