On the Independence Day of Ukraine the DPR Flag Was Hoisted Over Kramatorsk

Translated by Lada Pyatnitskaya



Unknown brave men raised the tricolor of the Republic right in the centre of the city.

On the morning of August 24th, 2017, photos of the flag of the DPR on the roof of school No. 17 in the city of Kramatorsk, which is temporarily under the control of Ukraine, appeared on social networks. The school is located in one of the central streets, Kim Street, and it’s clearly seen all around the centre. Thus, the unknown patriots of Donbass congratulated Ukraine on its Independence Day.

It should be noted that this act could have cost these brave men their lives. According to local residents, the city is full of snitches. If there’s the slightest suspicion of “separatism” – there’s a delation to the SBU. The local residents are forced to love Ukraine. For refusing to go to any events with a yellow-blue flag, which are held almost every day, you’ll be fired.

“People are growing rabid because of all of this. They are all intimidated. They are afraid to discuss many topics even in their kitchens,” said a local to the correspondent of KP.

Against the background of such total surveillance and persecution of dissent, it is definitely a courageous thing to do.
