There is an order in the "DNR", according to which separatist media should regularly mention the so-called "Donetsk Republic" social movement. Local journalists told this to Russian journalist Marina Akhmedova.
"According to the republican journalists (we cannot name their names), the editorial staff of the DNR have an order to mention the "DR" social movement at least once in local TV stories and for every three thousand characters in each article", - Akhmedova writes.
In particular, the number of mentions depends on the number of characters in the article: at least two mentions of the "organization" are required for three thousand characters.
"If there are more characters, there should be more mentions. It does not matter what is told about in the TV story or article. The editorial staff is obliged to mention the organization, even if it is referred to asphalt laying", - M.Akhmedova noted.
NGO "The Donetsk Republic" is in fact the ruling party in the occupied territory, headed by the "DNR" leader Alexander Zakharchenko personally. It is characterized by an artificial build-up of its strength by means of the forced admission of ordinary members to its ranks, that is, ordinary citizens living in the occupation.
