January the 28th (and 27th)

9:35am Active youth of the Kherson region 
continue to share their impressions of the 
rest in Artek.
 
About 60 young residents from our region combine business
 with pleasure – active recreation in the clean Crimean air
 and exciting activities. The young leaders ended up 
exactly where their activism and desire to do 
something good for their homeland 
is appreciated.
 
After three weeks spent at the camp, the guys will take 
with them a valuable store of knowledge, as well as 
make new friends.
 
It should be noted that rest in Crimea is at the expense 
of the state – schoolchildren and students of Ukraine

In his opinion, the inhabitants of our region have never seen
 such an attitude under Ukraine – everything was looted.
 
“There was no normal social policy, families were not
supported. And, with the transition to the Russian 
Federation, many people themselves say ----- that 
they have never seen such a thing in their lives,

programs to support people. It is this support 
that is the main proof --- that Russia is a 
country that is fighting for peace”,

5G communications in the DPR
 
“In 2022, the technical specialists of the enterprise launched 
the first stand of the 5G standard. We cannot now talk about

 technically ready for such a development of 
events,” said Vladislav Trunov, Deputy 
Director of the ROS.

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 – Eduard Basurin
May 25th, 3:33pm
https://en.news-front.info/
 
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 111 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, originally from Merthyr.
 
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.

Two new checkpoints to be set up
 on boundary with Rostov region
 — Pushilin
January 24th, 1:04pm (DAN)
 
The Donetsk People’s Republic plans to set up two new
 checkpoints on the administrative boundary with the 
Rostov region and enlarge the capacity of one 
currently in use, DPR Acting Head, Denis 
Pushilin, said on Tuesday.
 
“We’ll double the ‘Uspenka’ capacity using the old terminal,” 
Pushilin said on the Solovyov Live program. “As for the 
pedestrian crossing, we plan to build a terminal for 
the scanner for quick indoor crossing. We plan 
two new checkpoins between Novoazovsk 
and ‘Uspenka.’
 
The measures will help decrease the load on the existing
 checkpoints. The checkpoint capacity was challenged
 by a large number of trucks carrying construction 
materials to the Republic. The new facilities are
 expected to reduce food prices in the DPR... 
because long truck queues at checkpoints 
provoke price hikes, he added.
 
“Price of delivery to our regions is actually 2 to 2.5 times 
higher than to any other neighboring region,” Pushilin 
said adding that the authorities were considering
 dedicated lane links to the checkpoints.
 
On Monday, Pushilin ordered the DPR government to
 find ways... to reduce food truck queues waiting 
times on the administrative boundary with
 the Rostov region.

 urban development master plan for the first time since

The adjustment will enable the local authorities to plan 
urban development and attract potential investors,

 The new Russian regions must be included in national
 projects as quickly as possible, President Vladimir 
Putin said at a meeting with Cabinet officials 
on Wednesday.
 
“We’ve already talked about it - and I want to
 emphasize, once again, that it is necessary 
to involve the Federation’s new constituent 
entities in the implementation of national 
projects. 
 
“It means, among other things, that funding must be
secured for national projects to be implemented in 
the DPR, LPR & Zaporozhye and Kherson regions”
 the Kremlin website quoted Putin as saying.
 
The government is already working on it, and this 
work must be completed as soon as possible,

 indicators for assessing the new 
regions’ development must be 
set for this year.
 
“I mean uniform and transparent criteria of work not

ministries and departments, can concentrate 
their efforts and resources on priority tracks 
that require foremost attention,” the head

DPR to launch utility 
customer service 
hotline

The Donetsk People’s Republic will launch a universal
 hotline for utility customers in the foreseeable future, 
DPR Acting Head Denis Pushilin said after a
 conference with the government and 
local authorities on Tuesday.
 
“Donetsk and Makeyevka residents keep complaining
 about failing water supply schedules. Furthermore, 
water points in basements and house entrances
  freeze due to low temperatures. Local
 administrations must address these
 issues, ” Pushilin wrote 
on Telegram.
 
He said that the authorities were launching a universal
  three-digit number  for consultations over utility
 service problems, following complaints about 
inaction of heat-, water-supply and house 
management companies which are 
unreachable by phone.
 
“We’ve made some headway in Mariupol, and 
similar customer services will be set up in 
other DPR towns,” Pushilin said.
 
Earlier reports said that utility charge exemptions
 would be extended from January the 1st for the 
customers who get water from the Seversky 
Donets-Donbass canal. The measure was 
implemented for the first time in August 
2022 due to the blockade of the region 
by Kiev.
 
The key water supply canal originates in Kiev-
controlled territory, and Ukraine stopped 
supplying water in late February 2022, 
which made the DPR authorities 
introduce scheduled water 
supplies. 
 
At present, water is supplied to large DPR
 towns for three hours.... every third day.

DPR doctors perform first ever 
pelvic bone tumour resection
January 10th, 11:33am (DAN)
 
 Donetsk People’s Republic doctors have performed
 the first-ever surgery to remove a pelvic bone 
tumour in a 16-year-old boy, the regional 
Healthcare Ministry reported 
on Tuesday.
 
“A 16-year-old adolescent with a voluminous pelvic
bone tumour in a hard-to-reach area was admitted
 to the Republican Trauma Centre,” the Ministry
 said. “The doctors removed the tumour and 
restored the post-surgery bone defect
with
 a bio-implant.”
 
It was the first such surgery in the 
Republic. It lasted for three hours.
 
“Despite the atypical tumour site in a hard-to-reach
 area.. we succeeded in removing as much of the 
new growth as possible within normal tissue. 
Bioimplant insertion enabled the patient to 
get back on his feet two days later. 
 
“Previously, such patients had to stay in bed 
for about a month,” the Ministry quoted the 
Republican Trauma Centre Children’s 
Department Director, Yevgeny 
Zhilitsyn, as saying.
 
The adolescent is taking a rehabilitation course 
in the Trauma Centre, health officials said.
 

DPR preparing to join Russian  “Direct Payments” welfare project

DPR preparing to join
Russian 
“Direct
Payments”
welfare project
January 5th, 10:41am (DAN)
 
 The Donetsk People’s Republic plans to join the 
benefit allocation mechanism under Russia’s
 “Direct payments” pilot project, DPR deputy
 government chairperson, Larisa
Tolstykina, 
told the Donetsk
News Agency.
 
“The Russian Federation... is implementing the ‘Direct 
Payments’ welfare project and the Donetsk People’s
Republic is preparing to switch to this benefit 
payment method,” Tolstykina said. “The 
advantage of the system, is that
citizens 
get timely and
full payments.”
 
The system guarantees - that the size of the benefit
 meets the norms set by the law and that payments
 won’t be delayed due the employer’s shortage of 
funds, she added.
 
“Direct Payments” is a pilot project of the Russian
 Social Insurance Fund (SIF) - which merged with 
the Pension Fund into the Social Fund of Russia 
on January 1, 2023. Under the project, insurers 
pay full fees into compulsory social insurance. 
The fee cannot be reduced by the sum earlier
 paid by the SIF.
 
The interaction procedure between the Fund, 
employer and employee, is changed thus: 
a company receives an application and 
documents from an employee... 
confirming the right to receive 
benefits and sends them to 
the Social Insurance Fund 
in electronic form. 
 
The Fund then directly pays the benefit to the insured
 employee. The calculation method and the size of
 benefit remain unchanged. The system improves
 control over benefit allocation and collection.

 number of water points and water trucking
for
 residents, city mayor Alexey Kulemzin
said at a briefing on Monday, held at the

Kulemzin said.
 
 “Russia is now sending more vehicles for additional
 servicing of Donetsk districts. We plan to increase
 the number of water points and boost the
water supply.”
 
Director of the DPR Emergencies Ministry Civil Defense 
and Population Protection Department Vadim Kapustin
 said that Donetsk had launched 218 water points. 
 
Water is also supplied to 97 boiler houses. Service
 water is provided by five integrated treatment

under Kiev forces fire. Large towns... such as 
Donetsk, Makeyevka & Gorlovka introduced
scheduled water supplies.
 
 Tap water is unavailable in certain districts as repairs
 are not possible due to the proximity to the zone of 
fighting. To resolve the water problems, the 
authorities continue to look for alternative
 sources, actively build additional water 
supply lines and deliver drinking and

 head of the Presidential Administration of the 
Russian Federation, Sergey Kiriyenko, 
specifying that funds for this 
purpose will be allocated
 by Moscow.
 
Kiriyenko said that, earlier, Russian President Vladimir
Putin gave a separate order to the Ministry of Internal 
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

video message to teachers in Donbass, 
on Saturday, August the 27th.
 
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

Kherson region and parts of the 
districts of the Zaporozhye 
region, they are going to 
introduce combined

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.

 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.
