Dear residents of Abkhazia, I congratulate you on the principal State holiday! I send you sincere and cordial greetings on behalf of myself and the citizens of the Donetsk People’s Republic!

Donbass is proud to call Abkhazia a fraternal country, and will always be grateful for help. We are grateful to the selflessly dedicated and courageous heroes of Abkhazia, who took the disaster that came to Donetsk in 2014 personally.

I am sure that the friendship between our countries will only grow stronger, and many victories and achievements lie ahead.

May I wish all the residents of Abkhazia sound health, well-being, comfort and prosperity in their homes! Happy holiday!

Head of the Donetsk People’s Republic
Denis Pushilin
