Yenakiyevo, where one of the largest steel plants known as YMP is located, was the site of a rally in support of the nationalization* of the plant by DPR authorities. The plant is owned by an infamouss oligarch known as Rinat Akhmetov, through his group “Metinvest”. The plant’s productions ceased last week, amidst a blockade of DPR products by Ukrainian extremist nationalists, who also marched in protest against the embattled and deeply unpopular Poroshenko government who is not only despised by DPR and LPR residents, but also by nationalists within his own country.
Residents rallied with slogans shown in pictures below stating their support for Zakharchenko’s nationalization measures, believing that it will increase trade with the Russian Federation, thereby improving the economic conditions of Donbass citizens.
Famed DPR soldier “Texas” remarked about the measures in concrete terms well: “Today we respond to nazi blockade – all businesses in the Republics will now be managed by and pay taxes to us, not Kiev regime and ukrop oligarchs. This will ensure tens of thousands of our citizens continue to work AND GET PAID, and it will increase our industrial and economic strength. The fascists tried to hurt us through economic warfare, but we use economic Judo. Their attack will cost them BILLIONS, add billions to our coffers and open new markets for us with the Russian federation.
Today was an economic Debaltsevo, an economic Stalingrad for the ukrop nazis. Every time they try to hurt us, they only hurt themselves.
They did this to themselves, it was not our idea. But we know, all we have to do is continue to stand strong and survive. The nazis will defeat themselves…”
