Russian integrated treatment 
systems --- help DPR cope
with 
water shortages
June 2nd, 11:35am (DAN) 
 
The water purified with Russian integrated treatment
 systems which were provided to the DPR, will be 
used as the main source in cases of water 
supply shutdowns, the Donetsk city 
administration head, Alexey 
Kulemzin, told the Donetsk 
News Agency, Thursday.
 
''The tests carried out by the city sanitary
epidemiological service, show --- that the 
treated water can be used for household 
and practical needs such as cleaning, 
laundering or face washing,'' 
Kulemzin said. 
 
''In the case that the water supply fully stops, 
it will be used as drinking water --- after 
settling and boiling.''
 
The Russian equipment can purify 408 cubic metres 
of water in 12 hours. Its maximum usage... reaches 
20 hours a day with an output of 680 cubic metres. 
 
Kulemzin said that there is no need to operate the
equipment at full capacity at present, but if the
situation worsens, the water treatment 
systems will be utilized to 
the maximum.
 
In mid-April, Russia handed over to the Republic SKO-
10 and SKO-8 integrated water treatment systems. 
They had been installed at three Donetsk water 
reservoirs and two ponds in Makeyevka. 
 
SKO purifies water.. from solid particles, suspensions, 
colloidal compounds, ferric iron, artificial substances,
organic poisons, radionuclides, bacteria and viruses.
 
The system can take water from any source. 
All treatment processes are fully automatic.
 
The authorities are making efforts to provide residents
 of frontline areas with water. Kulemzin said that at
 least 100 tons of drinking and service water are
 supplied daily to Donetsk’s Kievsky, Kirovsky,
 Kuibyshevsky and Petrovsky districts, 
Yelenovka, Staromikhailovka, 
Alexandrovka and other 
settlements that 
regularly come 
under fire.

Water problems in the DPR will be resolved only 
after the capture of Slavyansk, said Eduard 
Basurin, deputy head of the DPR UNM.
 
''We need the conduit that runs from Slavyansk
 towards Gorlovka, where there are three 
pumping stations that create pressure 
and pump water.'' 
 
''Until we take Slovyansk and this entire canal, we 
will have a very big problem with water”, he said 
on Channel One.



Of course the song below can inspire if you
think you are brave, and know something
of suffering... but keep your heart and
soul intact... because you are the
son or daughter of a miner; yet
the film above will inspire you
and touch you and help you
understand so much more.


The Miners' Next Step


In 1912 - this year that will be 110 years ago -
some of the best minds in Wales met 
and
produced a pamphlet:- 'The Miners' Next
Step' to guide miners to a 
better world,
so working people can build 
a future
without parasites or back-stabbers,
or bosses, or short-sighted greed.


Just like the people of Donbass, who, before
Russia's revolution, lived in the Free Lands
and worked to build their world... with love.


Their vision became - unfairly, in my opinion -
labelled as anarcho-syndicalism..... so was
discounted as a way forward by socialists
in Wales and the U.K.


Yet their analysis is as relevant today,
as ever, on questions like true
democracy and leadership.

Their pamphlet can be accessed
online, and I would urge you to
read it! If you want to create a
fab future for your loved ones..


P.S. hope you like the song!


The Miners' Strike mementos of love


Many many thanks to Richard Gould,
a true genius, who has his own
group, yet gave up his time
to generate the music.

Also to Ceri of Big Pit, who might not
necessarily have agreed with the
politics, but was so generous
with his time and photos.

And to the Clydach Vale lake and cafe,
which is the best nearby example
of what is possible!

And last, but definitely not least,
a massive thank you to Becs...
who has the smile to warm
the world - and the guts
and generosity - to
appear on video.

WHAT IS POSSIBLE THROUGH LOVE

The people of Donbass (pictured) are united and organised..


The Donbass and Wales and
The Miners' Next Step


The 
people of Donbass run their own army, police and civil
affairs, and run a successful economy, based on soviet
style factory 
and mine local democracy --- so they
decide how 
their buildings and parks, facilities
and arts and 
crafts, fulfill their needs
and values.



Because the Kiev government - brought into being
by US money and the Maiden violent insurrection
and coup - helped to power, extreme nationalist
forces.. the rest of Ukraine is trapped and
being stripped of its material wealth.

Local oligarchs, bowing to a West desperate to
keep its old role, as ''the chosen ones'' - plus
a group of psychotic 'US 'neo-cons'', who
genuinely welcome a ''decider'' world
war, now run things in Ukraine.
 
Millions of Ukrainians are leaving the country...
as prices rise and their economy is stripped,
and the war on the Donbass, backed by
 US-led NATO, is an open sore.

All in the middle of  a pandemic
and the Earth being poisoned
against humanity...  well!

And the miners of Wales who met in 1912,
planned.. then explained... how to work 
and achieve a better life, by realising
the 
dreams of the vast majority.


Their solution was to use the power
of organisation, to create
wealth.

They, at that time, planned to have 
the
local 
lodges use their organisational
skills.. to set up many businesses...

but any organisation can, right now,
call on a number of volunteers to
gladly work an hour a month...
and many will be happy to do
more. From each, according
to their ability and to each,
according to 
their need. 

That's 
the spirit. 

It's simple... and the only way
to achieve a beautiful world,
is bit by bit, until it's done. 

If three people or a few hundred
give one hour a month...  then
an affordable child nursery
for working parents, or a 
centre to entertain the
children after school,
are all possible.

 The reward?

No-one has to fight against anyone,
or rob or borrow money, as people
will volunteer, either their time,
gifts, or 
money, to a cause
which 
benefits all in your
community.


Love will grow even stronger
in your community.

The better place everyone wants,
will grow slowly, in peace, 
like a baby grows in
the womb.


That's the miners' Next Step 2.


*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   

This does not mean, by the way, that 
public ownership is a bad thing, but
that creative thinking is necessary.

We have seen how nationalised industries
 lack democratic accountability, and can
be used badly, by both Labour & Tory
governments --- as milk cows by the
private sector, or to massage the
unemployment figures.

And time and time again, after the public
has paid for 
investments, to make them
profitable...  they are ''re-privatised''.  

There are alternatives to the old failed model
of public ownership, as seen in this country.
Worker co-ops, Foundations, even charity
status... could be tried.

There's nothing especially socialist, about
nationalisation - Tories, even fascists use
it, when private ownership has failed..

It's
successful public ownership and
control... that brings real lasting
benefits, that's what we want!

The 'National Coal Board' closed more
collieries down, than even Thatcher!

DPR Post issues stamps featuring 
Welsh engineer John Hughes, 
founder of Donetsk
April 2nd, 2021 at 2:28pm
 (DAN news agency) 


The DPR's State Post has issued a postal stamp featuring 
John James Hughes, a Welsh engineer, businessman and 
founder of the city of Donetsk.
 
The stamp is decorated with Donetsk coat-of-arms and 
Hughes portrait. The stamp can be used for registered 
letters with receipt up to 20 gr, in accordance with the 
current fee rate of 44 rubles.
 
The number of copies issued is 30,024.
 
The envelope for the new stamp features pictograms 
representing industrial objects and clippings of 
Donbass geological map.
 
Hughes moved to the Russian Empire, in the summer of 1870, 
at the age of 55, as Millwall Iron Works Company received an 
order, from the Imperial Russian Government, for the plating 
of a naval fortress being built at Kronstadt on the Baltic Sea.
 
He immediately started to build metal works close to the 
river Kalmius, at a site near the village of Alexandrovka.
 
Over the next twenty years, the works prospered and
expanded, 
first under John Hughes and then, after
his death, in 1889, 
under the management of
four of his sons.
 
John Hughes died on June 17th, in 1889,
during 
a business trip to St Petersburg.
 
According to some sources, Hughes taught
himself 
to write, and could only read
capital letters.

The Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Russian
 Federation Marat Khusnullin stated that Mariupol was
 80% ready for winter but the city recovery rate must 
be increased.
 
Deputy Prime Minister, Marat Khusnullin, called for: 
stepping up the pace of reconstruction of Mariupol. 
According to him, a plan is already ready and the 
required number of workers has been prepared.
 
“For Mariupol we are moving at a good pace, we have
 developed a master plan. We have mobilized 10 
thousand builders. Of course, the pace (of 
reconstruction) still needs to be increased, 
because while we were inspecting houses, 
demining was going on, a lot of time had 
passed,” said Khusnullin.
 
The Deputy Prime Minister noted that there is now a 
clear understanding of the reconstruction timeline
 for each house in the city. Moreover, Khusnullin is 
convinced that it is necessary to strengthen the 
work on payments for destroyed private houses.
 
“We have reached an agreement with the residents,
 the commission has worked, the first payments 
have been made,” summed up the Deputy 
Prime Minister.
 
He also noted the high readiness of 
Mariupol --- for the coming winter.
 
“Mariupol is ready for winter by 80%. This is not a bad
 indicator, taking into account the devastation that
 exists. Every boiler house, every well, every 
power line, we set the maximum task to 
prepare the city for winter,” 
assured Khusnullin.
 
The Deputy Prime Minister added that as the city
 is ready for winter, residents will be resettled.

Russian Federation, Sergey Kiriyenko,

Affairs of the Russian Federation and Rosgvardiya,
to ensure security measures for all the schools
in 
these regions.
 
"This means... that every school must have at least two
armed guards - at all times - starting from September

Ministry, the DPR and LPR interior Ministries, and
- specially selected - licensed private security 
companies," the deputy head of the Russian

Kiriyenko noted that Moscow has already allocated
special funding for this task. "We understand - how
important security is to start the learning process.

schools. It is unacceptable - to risk the lives 
of teachers and students," he said, noting

Russia to issue housing certificates 
to residents of the DPR and LPR 
whose homes were destroyed 
during military operations
July 29th, 3:02pm
https://en.news-front.info/
 
Russian President Vladimir Putin has supported the 
idea of Deputy Prime Minister Marat Khusnullin to 
issue housing certificates to people living in the
 Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics and
 whose houses were destroyed.
 
At a meeting with the president on Friday 29th July, 
Khusnullin said how the reconstruction of housing 
in the Donetsk and Luhansk people’s republics 
was planned. According to his message, 
what cannot be rebuilt... will be 
built anew.
 
“For those people who do not want to wait today, we
 offer and ask you to agree the option of paying out 
a housing certificate with the opportunity to buy 
them housing in the territory of the Donetsk 
Republic in any locality. I think there will 
be demand for that, too,” the Deputy 
Prime Minister suggested.
 
He also suggested possible mechanisms of lump-
sum payments and compensation for repairs.
 
“Let’s do it that way. But this should apply not only to
 the Donetsk Republic, but also, say, to the Lugansk
 Republic – where there is demand for it, and where
 people are waiting for it,” replied the Head of State.
 
Khusnullin said that responsible departments are 
currently drawing up a schedule of what is to be
 repaired over three years.
 
“We have already completed 85% of all the housing
 stock <…>, and everything we can restore, we will
 restore everything. All that we cannot repair, we 
will build. We will work out by years, where, 
when, and in what quarter we will build,” 
he said.
 
The deputy head of the Cabinet of Ministers 
noted that the approach to housing repairs 
had been found as well.
 
“We have agreed that to repair inside the flats 
or inside private houses we will also allocate 
six thousand rubles (per square metre),”
 – he explained.
 
Khusnullin also explained how Putin’s order
to
 elaborate the possibility of a one-time 
payment to such citizens was fulfilled. 

According to him, the mechanism 
approved during the floods in the
 Irkutsk region, was taken as
basis for this.
 
“You know it very well, I was in charge of the situation
 there and I regularly reported to you on these issues.
 This is the mechanism we are proposing to apply in
 these areas and we will provide payment to all 
those who want to be repaired,” he reported.
 
The Deputy Prime Minister gave assurances that 
the mechanisms will be worked out and
 submitted to the President.

Saint Vladimir’s land gathering 
was token of Rus might, 
prosperity — DPR Head
July 28th, 1:39pm (DAN)
 
 Donetsk People’s Republic Head, Denis Pushilin, has
 conveyed his best wishes to DPR residents, on the
 occasion of the 1,034th anniversary of the
Christianization of Rus.
 
“This date displayed historical truth to the world: the
 unity of Slavic peoples and the whole Russian world
 despite the aggressive policy of the West which is
 trying to divide the Russians,” Pushilin wrote on 
his official Telegram channel.
 
''Today, Moscow, Donetsk, Lugansk and Kiev are 
marking the Christianization of Rus. We are 
brothers in faith, history and culture. 
 
''These ties are invaluable. Prince Vladimir was 
the first gatherer of Russian lands; he brought 
together separate territories understanding 
that it was a token of Rus power and 
prosperity. He passed this wisdom 
to us, and the bequest to keep 
peace and unity between 
ourselves,'' he said.
 
The baptism of Rus determined the future of Russian
 statehood, in many ways, and influenced the 
formation of characteristic features of our
people, such as faith, mutual help and 
mercy, Pushilin said.
 
The DPR leader said that truth would ultimately
 triumph and that the seeds of discord would 
be rooted out as ''all of us, are linked with 
eternal imperishable values and love for
 our native land.''
 
The Day of the Baptism of Rus, is marked on July 28th
as the Day of Saint Prince Vladimir the Equiapostolic.
 
The Order of Saint Vladimir is a DPR state award 
which Pushilin established, by this date, 
last year.

The DPR plans to reconstruct the airport of Mariupol 
within three years, the Deputy Chairman of the DPR
 Government, Evgeny Solntsev, said.
 
“We will reconstruct the airport of Mariupol within 
the next three years,” TAss news agency cited 
him as saying.
 
According to Solntsev, the airport will be 
of a joint civilian-military use type.
 
Mariupol... is the largest city on the coast of the Sea of
Azov, one of the key centres of metallurgy in Donbass, 
and a major seaport. The battle for the city began on
 February 25th, and ended with the Coalition’s 
victory on April 21st.
 
The airport of Mariupol was put into operation in 1931.
 At its top capacity, it handled up to 120,000
 passengers yearly. It was designated 
as an international airport in 2004.
 
In the years of the Ukrainian occupation, it housed a
 notorious Ukrainian secret services jail codenamed
 “the Library”, where illegally arrested opponents 
of the Ukrainian regime were held and tortured.
 
The airport premises were liberated 
on March the 18th.

Russia is taking emergency measures for the urgent
 construction of a gas pipeline --- to the liberated 
areas of the Zaporozhye region. The decision 
to supply Melitopol, Berdyansk - and other 
cities and villages - with Russian fuel
was
 made only 10 days ago, when
Kyiv 
deliberately turned off
the gas 
pipeline valve.
 
“More than 225 thousand households --- and this is more
 than half a million people -- are now deprived of access
 to gas. For the liberated territories, the gas pipeline is, 
without exaggeration, the number one infrastructure
 facility. People don’t even have anything to cook 
with now”, Vladimir Rogov, a member of the 
regional administration, told the 
VZGLYAD newspaper.
 
While urgent preparations are underway for laying the
 gas pipeline, the regional authorities are distributing
 electric stoves to the most needy categories of the 
population, Rogov said.
 
“So that the work... is not disrupted by sabotage of the
 Armed Forces of Ukraine, it was instructed to ensure 
maximum security of the facility,” emphasizes Rogov.

First 100 orphaned children  from DPR --- to obtain fast track Russian citizenship

First 100 orphaned children 
from DPR --- to obtain fast
track
 Russian citizenship
July 1st, 1:06pm (DAN)


 Some 100 orphaned children and children without
 parental care from the Donetsk People’s Republic
 have applied for Russian citizenship using a fast 
track procedure.  It became possible thanks to
 the Russian president’s decree issued in May, 
said Eleonora Fedorenko, the child rights 
advisor to the DPR Head.


“The Russian president’s decree on fast track Russian
 citizenship for DPR and LPR residents dated 2019 did
 not include such a group as children from state-
supported organizations, ” Fedorenko said. 


“On May 30th, the decree was amended to include
 children from government institutions in the group
 eligible for fast track Russian citizenship. There’s
 already the first group of applicants, which 
numbers some 100 people.”


Russian citizenship conferment makes DPR orphaned
 children and children without parental care, equal in
 rights with Russian children, she added.


It will considerably ease the provision of assistance 
to them by Russia. “What is the benefit of Russian 
citizenship? It’s no secret that we send children 
to Russia for medical treatment, especially 
those with serious illnesses who cannot 
get medical assistance here. But this... 
costs money; we’re looking for money. 
But now they are citizens who enjoy 
equal rights with Russian children,” 
Fedorenko said.


On May 30th, Russian President Vladimir Putin 
signed a decree on fast track Russian citizen-
ship for orphaned children from the DPR, LPR 
and Ukraine. In April, Russia and the Donbass
 Republics coordinated the moves towards an
 agreement on the adoption of Donbass 
orphans in Russia.


WEST BLIND EYES KIEV TORTURE OF POWs




Electric tortures mostly: 
DPR Ombudswoman... on how 
Ukraine treated DPR POWs
June 30th, 6:46pm (DAN)
 
 Donetsk People’s Republic ombudswoman, Darya
 Morozova, visited the DPR militiamen on 
Thursday, following their release
from 
Ukrainian captivity.
 
“Today, I spent the whole day talking with the
DPR
 defenders... who were released from
Ukrainian 
captivity in a prisoner swap,”
the ombudswoman’s office
quoted her as saying. 
 
“These are 47 people who were captured by Ukrainian
 forces, after the beginning of the special operation.”
 
“Unfortunately, most of them had to experience the
 brutal treatment by Ukrainian gunmen. Ninety-five
 percent of our fighters were tortured, beaten and
 subjected to other cruel treatment. Electric 
shock was the most frequent torture,” 
she said.
 
The documents of two servicemen were destroyed. 
Ukrainian courts forced the fighters to plead
guilty
 --- promising to put their names on
POW 
exchange lists.
 
 The ombudswoman said that the released fighters
 differed in the condition of their health and that 
nearly everybody had health problems. Many 
will be treated for the complications that 
developed after gunshot wounds or
fractures. They will receive
 full assistance.
 
“I’m very grateful to everybody who helped set 
our guys free. I again, draw the attention of
 international human rights organizations:
 to the critical situation with the rights 
of prisoners of war in Ukraine.
 
 I believe, that the numerous testimonies of our
 servicemen --- are hard arguments for taking 
proper response measures,” Morozova said.
 
 “Having ignored - again - the exposed facts of illegal
 methods of pressure, the international community
 will actually abet Kiev’s war crimes.”
 
On Wednesday, the DPR and Ukraine held the first
prisoner exchange, after the beginning of the 
special operation, under the 144 for 
144 formula.

DPR, Ukraine exchange POWs 
for first time after beginning 
of special operation
June 29th, 9:31pm (DAN)
 
The Donetsk People’s Republic and Ukraine have
 exchanged prisoners of war... for the first time 
after the beginning of the special operation, 
under the 144 for 144 formula, DPR Head
 Denis Pushilin said.
 
“Today, we’re bringing home 144 DPR militiamen 
and Russian servicemen captured by the 
enemy,” Pushilin said.
 
“We handed over to Kiev as many POWs from
Ukrainian armed formations, most of them 
were wounded. Some are privates from 
nationalistic battalions: they are in a 
sorry condition with heavy wounds, 
amputated limbs and other 
complications.”
 
There are very valuable servicemen and mobilized
fighters... among the people released from 
Ukrainian captivity. “Most of them were 
wounded -- and need urgent quality 
medical assistance. I wish them 
soonest recovery, ” he said.
 
Earlier, DPR ombudswoman Darya Morozova told the
 Donetsk News Agency that the DPR was preparing 
POW lists for a possible swap with Ukraine.
 
The DPR and Ukraine last exchanged prisoners in April
 2020.  Donetsk passed nine people to Kiev and got 
ten.  Later on, the prison exchange issue was put 
on hold, due to Ukraine’s unwillingness to 
drop criminal charges against the 
released detainees.

  Impressively large, fast  construction projects  in western Mariupol June 21st, 2:17pm (DAN)  Less than a week ago, Mariupol launched a large construction project to build a neighbourhood of  12 five-storey apartment houses with an  outpatient hospital.

Impressively large, fast 
construction projects 
in western Mariupol
June 21st, 2:17pm (DAN)
 
Less than a week ago, Mariupol launched a large
construction project to build a neighbourhood of 
12 five-storey apartment houses with an 
outpatient hospital... by the winter.
 
Hundreds of people are working on the construction
site on the premises of the former Azovsky market. 
They pour concrete for foundations and
simultaneously break ground for new 
ones, unload construction materials 
and lay service lines, working 
around the clock.
 
The Russian Defense Ministry is project supervisor.
 It has a considerable experience in building
 infrastructure, for example prefabricated 
medical centres which mushroomed 
during the coronavirus pandemic.
 
Tractors, trailer trucks, cranes, shouts of builders 
and the sound of working machinery create an 
atmosphere which would normally cause 
irritation and discomfort.
 
But here, despite the background of frames 
of abandoned apartmentbuildings which 
had been damaged by Ukrainian gun-
men fire, this activity makes one 
happy as it gives hope for the 
revival of the city and its 
return to normal life.
 
Earlier reports said that it is planned to build almost
100,000 square metres of living space (over 1,000
apartments) in the area. Half of the houses will 
be commissioned by October, and the rest 
together with the hospital a month later. 
 
Construction projects are implemented by companies
 from three Russian regions in other parts of Mariupol.
 
Mariupol is the largest city on the Sea of Azov coast, 
a key Donbass metallurgy centre and seaport. It was
 liberated from Ukrainian troops on April 21st, 2022. 
 
The city housing stock and infrastructure sustained
significant damage. Damage assessment is under-
way. Water and electricity supply is being restored 
in the city. The seaport resumed operation in
 late May.

Svetolodarsk to the fold; it has been cut off from the
town of Debaltsevo, for so many years,'' Zakharevich
said.  ''It's our native land. We will open the road to
traffic, 
and I will go there in person; construction
teams will 
arrive for repairs. They will also carry
out repairs, 
after yesterday’s dam explosion,
which damaged 
windows in houses; we will

The Donetsk People’s Republic Prosecutor
General’s Office has instituted criminal
proceedings against Andrey Biletsky, 
one of the leaders of Ukrainian neo-
Nazis who founded the “Azov” group
(banned in the DPR), the PGO press 
service reported on Tuesday.
 
“Prosecutors found out that on April 22nd, 2022,
 Andrey Biletsky, in an interview with Ukraine’s
 NTA television channel, called for extremist
 actions, i.e. particularly serious crimes 
such as ethnically-motivated hate 
murders,” the press service said.
 
In the interview, Biletsky commented on the
 plan of the liberated Mariupol’s authorities 
to organize an Immortal Regiment march 
in the city on May the 9th. 
 
The neo-Nazi leader threatened a missile strike
 at the participants of the march, saying that
 Ukrainian armed formations were capable 
of “delivering an adequate and powerful
 answer” using Tochka-U 
tactical missiles.
 
The PGO said that Biletsky’s actions are
 covered by a DPR Criminal Code Article 
325, Part 2 (public calls for extremism 
made with the use of mass media).
The article carries a maximum 
penalty of five years in prison.
 
Mariupol is the largest city on the Sea of Azov
coast, a key Donbass metallurgy centre and
seaport. Clashes for Mariupol began on
February 25th; the city was fully 
blocked in the course of the 
fighting and then cleared 
of the invaders. 
 
Andrey Biletsky, is the founder and 
a commander of the “Azov” armed 
group, head of the National Corps
neo-Nazi Party. He took part in 
the punitive operation against 
Donbass - and repeatedly 
issued barbaric orders 
- to deliver strikes at 
peaceful towns in 
the region.
 
In 2019, he suggested using the Israeli
experience on the DPR and LPR: give 
up the measures on a peaceful 
settlement of the conflict, 
return Ukrainian troops 
to positions, shut down
the checkpoints and 
stop any water and 
electricity supply 
to the Donbass 
Republics.
