Dear Vladimir Vladimirovich! I sincerely congratulate you on your birthday! Donbass conveys particular appreciation to you. We are immensely grateful for your personal participation in the settlement of the civil conflict in Donbass and for the invaluable humanitarian assistance. Owing to such support, we were not only able to survive, but also got the opportunity to develop and make plans for the future, which we certainly see as part of Russia. But today we actually feel like Russians — citizens of the Big Country. You can always rely on us. Dear Vladimir Vladimirovich! On behalf of theDonbass residents, I wish you excellent health, many years of productive work to the benefit of the Homeland and outstanding success in your demanding political duties! You have already occupied your place of honour among the historical figures who have transformed the world, and many more achievements are still ahead. From the millions of our hearts we wish you peace and well-being! Head of the Donetsk People's Republic Denis Pushilin
