"Our main goal is to bring people together, because everyone understands that we divided deliberately and unnatural border that should not be. For all residents of Donbas on both sides of the line of demarcation is clear that we – a single whole. And here are the different activities we are trying to prove that for us there is no division into "us" and "them." We have one language – Russian, the same mentality, the same values", – told reporters the General Director of the Philharmonic Alexander Paretsky.
