Alexander Zakharchenko congratulates lawyers on professional holiday

Today, on August 30, the Head of the DPR congratulated lawyers of the Republic on the professional holiday.

The Head of State pointed out the importance of the Law servants’ mission in the process of building the state.

"Your profession has always been considered one of the most honourable and significant. However, the Republic’s lawyers are not engaged in professional activities alone. You are making history, creating the backbone of the new state. I want to wish you to be proud of being lawyers of the Donetsk People's Republic!

You have much to be proud of, as within a record-breaking short period, you have managed to create a sound basis, the legislative platform on which the country rests. Many have taken decades for this achievement. The legal profession is associated with a great responsibility for the destinies of people and is aimed at ensuring justice and the rule of law in society. You have been charged with an important mission – to uphold the lofty ideals of freedom, justice and equality, to build a true civil society," Alexander Zakharchenko said.


The Head of State also awarded Zita Abramova, head of the legal department of the DPR Emergency Situations’ Ministry, the title of Honoured Lawyer of the Donetsk People's Republic.
