Then, in addition to visiting Russian provocateurs, quite a few local residents took part in such meetings, first of all, pensioners. The latter, by some monstrous misunderstanding, associated the present fully controlled oligarchy and thoroughly corrupt Russia with the Soviet Union in the 70s of the last century, with the so-called “full stagnation”, which seems to today's retirees as the embodiment of heaven on earth.
And they paid dearly for it.
During the five years of occupation, the residents of Donetsk received from the Soviet Union the boorish “officials”, the transcendent bureaucratization of all walks of life and elements of “war communism” – censorship, curfew and the total lack of rights of the common man.
And "total addition" became a "pleasant addition" to all this "magnificence". And the huge queues for charity dinners, which a considerable number of elderly adherents of the "Russian world" do not allow to die of hunger.
Recall, the Donetsk separatists beg them to save.
Also, there were terrible shots from the "capital" "DNR".
