"Dear Denis Vladimirovich, Please accept sincere congratulations on the national holiday - the Day of the Donetsk People's Republic.

Eight years ago, the DPR people made a choice in favor of state independence. Today we are waging a joint struggle so that the citizens of the Republic can exercise their legal right to a free and peaceful life in accordance with their age-old cultural and spiritual traditions in friendship with fraternal Russia.

I am sure that by joint efforts we will be able to overcome all difficulties and achieve victory.

I sincerely wish You good health and success, and all Your fellow citizens - courage, firmness and fortitude.

Sincerely, Vladimir Putin"
