“Russian Spring” congratulates Alexander Zakharchenko on his birthday
Today, June 26, the head of the Donetsk People’s Republic, Alexander Zakharchenko turns 41.
For Alexander Vladimirovich – native of Donbass, the work pathway began at the mines in electromechanics after completing his studies in the Donetsk technical school of industrial automation.
Since 2010, he has led the public organization “Oplot,” which dealt with the families of those killed during the execution of militiamen, and servicemen, and maintenance of the monuments to the heroes of the Great Patriotic War.
Over the past three years, Zakharchenko has repeatedly proved that he is in his place: it is worth listening to conversations in any Donetsk tram or trolley – the most honest section of public opinion. Many of those who treated him with a fair amount of skepticism in November 2014, now call him “Batei.”
During the days of heat on the front, Zakharchenko changes his jacket for camouflage and goes to the people to the front line.
The staff of the “Russian Spring” congratulates Alexander Zakharchenko on his birthday and wishes him good health and long life.
