Opening of the exhibition “Industrial heritage of the Donbass”, which was organized by the Deputy of the faction “United Russia” Josef Kobzon and the Committee of the lower house of Parliament on culture will be held on May, 17 in the State Duma. Also, the proposal to establish on the territory of Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics of the post-industrial landscape and recreational reserve, which could provide the basis for the emergence of a large tourism cluster will be performed during the opening. Information about this was transferred by the resource “RBC”.
The exhibition will feature photographs of the industrial Donbass region since its formation (mid nineteenth century) to the present day. “Pictures by contemporary authors will be shown along with historic photographs and archival documents from the collections of the museums of cities and enterprises of the Donbass,” stated in the description of the exhibition. It is also expected that the acting Minister of coal industry of the Donetsk People’s Republic (the DPR) Eduard Golenko will take part in the opening ceremony.
The organizers say that the war-ravaged mines of the Donbass need urgent preservation.
“The looming threat of destruction of objects of industrial heritage is in its scale comparable with the recent events in Palmyra (Syria -approx.ed.), where the world heritage sites were brutally destroyed as a result of fighting,” explain the authors ideas.
Recall that in April 2014, “the acting President of Ukraine” Aleksandr Turchynov, who took the post in a coup, announced the beginning of punitive operation against the residents of the Donbass, who declared about their disagreement with the current political situation in the country. The new “government” cynically called the use of force against its own people as “anti-terrorist operation (“ATO”). These events caused the proclamation of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics by the inhabitants of the Donbass and creation of own armed forces, which were able to repel the Ukrainian militants-punishers.
Today, despite the declared truce, the Ukrainian side continues to destroy homes and infrastructure of the DPR and the LPR. Artillery and military equipment of the AFU, with a constant frequency, strikes as residential areas of cities and settlements and so industrial objects, communications and social institutions.______________________________________________________________________
