Demonstrations in Donetsk
On Saturday, April 12, 2014, the residents of Donetsk demonstrated in support of the preservation of the integrity of Ukraine.Organisers of the demonstration chose the playground in the city centre to serve as the meeting spot. People arrived with their families and little children. Holding hands they walked along the main street, next to the shopping centres.
Proponents of the Republic of Donetsk reacted immediately. A motorcade of cars with Russian flags drove along the route of the demonstration. The motorcade was led by a car with a banner reading: SAY NO TO FASCISM! On the other side of the road, four young supporters of the Republic chanted “Donbas is Russia!”
