Severodonetsk is one of the cities of Lugansk Region that was liberated from pro-Russian terrorists last year. Most of the Ukrainian authorities were moved there from occupied Lugansk. Yesterday people of Severodonetsk were celebrating the Independence Day of Ukraine together with the rest of the country.
I am very happy to see so many people here. Let’s remember what happened in the past. A gang of bastards, pathological kleptomaniacs, 1st were raping Donbas and after that they spread all around Ukraine. At the moment when people rebelled against those scums, those monsters run away. 1st time in the last 24 years we got an opportunity for development and not for slavery. And at that moment we got 1st “brotherly” stab in the back, that was in Crimea. We didn’t have time to recover and same bastards that were raping Donbas started a war here, telling people myths about “Russian world” and “Donbas can’t be put on the knees”. Sure you can’t “Put Donbass on the knees”, because after 15 years it was put down on the ground. Those people are trying to separate us bases on different characteristics. But they will fail. We are all united by one thing. You can’t choose your parents, and same way nobody can choose his Motherland. Our Motherland is Ukraine. We live on the land that was given to us by God and we will not give it away to anyone. I congratulate you all with the Independence Day of Ukraine.
– George Tuka, the head of Civil-Military Administration of Lugansk Region
