Donetsk, Aug 22 - DAN. The flag of the Russian Federation has become the main symbol of struggle against the Kiev regime, Donetsk People’s Republic Head Denis Pushilin said on Thursday.

Under the Russian flag, the Donbass people rose against the Kiev regime in 2014, and under the tricolour, the Donbass militia went into battle for many years. In 2019, the issue of Russian passports to residents of the region began. “It means that we are one,” Pushilin said.

National Flag Day, marked on August 22, was established in Russia by presidential decree in 1994.*jk
