Ordinary fellows from South-East Ukraine: You should not separate us!

A terricone in Donbas

Hello everyone!

We are not politicians. We are ordinary fellows from miner’s towns of Donbas and urban regions of Kharkiv. Among us there are residents Kherson plains as well as those who see pipes of the Kichkas [city district of Zaporizhzhya] every day.

Lately many people speculate about the South-East regions of Ukraine, creating a myth that this is not Ukrainian land. At the same time, no one really asks the opinion of the residents of the eastern and southern regions.

We disagree with this! We have one Motherland! We are all Ukrainians! We equally value the terricones of Snizhniy [coal mine in Donbas] and the slopes of Dnipro river, we admire both ancient Kerch and the beauty of Svytyaz lake.

You should not separate us! The South-East belongs to Ukraine!
