    On Donetsk territory the provocative leaflets continuing to distribute. One of the leaflets displayed up here.
    The content of this leaflets are aimed at warming separatist mood of Ukraine citizens based on Soviet propaganda during the Cold War, the identification of all people living in the territory of Ukraine and non-Russian nationality as nazis and fascists.
    Evidence of this was the essence of the conversation some individuals who approached to the building of Donetsk Regional State Administration that was caught by separatists for expressing sympathy with TVP channel (Polish) representatives.
    Opinion, which they expressed in response to a question asked by journalists "what they were fighting for?" was fully according to that covered by Russian TV. To the question "what is the final aim of all that happening in Donetsk and in the eastern part of Ukraine?". Unfortunately, no one could answer.
    In addition, on April 28, 2014, during a rally to the territorial integrity of Ukraine in Donetsk was clash with masked armed separatists with the batons and the bats .
    Before that, by the police officer approached pro-Russian aggressive man who began loudly called with unquotable words Ukrainians single holding national flags who were on the main street, in Donetsk to support of Ukraine.
    Then, suddenly ran several dozen masked green separatists and started beating people with bats, sticks, as well as at the head the victims already lying on the ground until they stopped moving.
    At the same time, police officers absolutely did nothing and just watched, and then disappeared altogether.
    Fortunately, many of the attackers managed to escape from the terrorists. Moreover, those who failed to do so, were beaten and severely crippled by pro-Russian separatists.
    Despite disperse pro-Ukraine meeting, terrorists continued to find out location of residents who were nearby, identifying as participants in the rally to support of Ukraine and beating them.
    During the following days, pro-Russian separatists captured the local television station, including the TV tower.
    Now, during broadcasting 27 channels, except for the logo channel placed the flag so-called Donetsk People's Republic.
    Throughout Donetsk region, the Ukrainian TV channels were disabled, including the first national channel.
    In place of, broadcasting the Russian channels, such as “RTR Planet” and “Russia 24”. From official buildings institutions that are not captured by armed separatists, the Ukrainian national flags were took down.
    Terrorist actions aimed at intimidating the population, the formation of pro-Russian mood before planned referendum on May 11, 2014 about illegal proclamation of Donetsk People's Republic and further join to Russia.
    In this situation, any citizen, who is beaten, taken hostage, intimidated his family cannot only freely expressing their opinions, but simply fear for his life.
