On the night of April 26, the 80th year of his life, died a talented Italian journalist, writer, social and political activist Giulietto Chiesa

On behalf of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Donetsk People’s Republic, we express sincere condolences to the family of Mr. Chiesa. His death is a great tragedy and loss, not only for relatives and friends, but also for all those who knew Mr. Chiesa as a professional, experienced journalist and a locomotive of independent Italian journalism.

Giulietto Chiesa was a great friend and associate of the Donetsk People's Republic. He repeatedly visited us on informational and humanitarian visits, actively supported the desire of our people for independence, and made every effort to spread the truth about events in Donbass in European countries.

We will remember him as a bright, benevolent, truly strong-willed person who lived with dignity and courageously defended the principles of humanity dear to him and the concepts of honor, justice, equality and freedom.
