On behalf of the residents of the Donetsk People’s Republic, I express my profound condolences to the families and friends of the victims and to the entire Ossetian people,” the Head of the DPR said.

During the conversation Denis Pushilin and Anatoly Bibilov discussed the situation with the coronavirus proliferation, as well as the transfer of humanitarian cargo to South Ossetia for anti-COVID-19 activities.
