LiveJournal Found, translated, and sent to me by FRN’s founder, Kristina Rus! Maxim Pishenin – the executioner of Nikolaev – Naspravdi – Friends in Nikolaev have been telling many stories about the lawlessness, horror and bloody crimes of the “Security Service of Ukraine” in those territories that should be called “temporarily occupied by the Kiev regime”.

Published 2019-04-16 19:37:27 by Tom Winter in Donbass, Donetsk, Eurasia, Headline-News, Lugansk, Russia, Ukraine

Erwan Castell Translator note: This report on the fifth anniversary of the Donetsk and Lugansk Declarations is actually a panegyric to the spirit of Donbass. It is worth reading or I would not have taken the trouble, and trouble there was: many of these sentences in the panegyric style were hundreds of words long, and replete with literary figures and rhetorical devices, so it has been more than the usual work to produce a smooth-reading English that conveyed what the French conveyed. Please accept it as a well-deserved panegyric to the unbowed spirit of the Lugansk and Donetsk Peoples Republics!
