A march of mummers took place in occupied Donetsk along the central street of Artem on the occasion of the next anniversary of the "DNR" pseudo-referendum. This was reported by eyewitnesses in social networks. Residents from smaller towns and villages of CADO were traditionally brought to the city to participate in the procession and holiday concert of the Lyube group. In addition, it is not clear whether it was canceled or not. Students, employees of budgetary organizations and, of course, children also had to appear without fail. Social networks showed numerous buses that brought the residents of CADO to Donetsk for a "holiday" and a concert. "All state structures went and walked in these columns under the order", - the Donetsk residents wrote. "The classics, everything, as the Party of Regions members had before the war", - the users commented. The procession was opened by bikers of the Russian Night Wolves club. Negative responses to this event from residents of the city in social networks prevail over joyful ones: "Some kind of clownery, fierce", "The Russian Federation has not recognized the republic for 7 years already. But we have Russian flags at every corner. This is some kind of parallel world", "Show-off is our everything". Many townspeople were also outraged by the holding of the festive procession despite the coronavirus pandemic: "As for the opening of border with the LNR - covid interferes, and there are no masks or covid at parades". There are also polls in the separatist segment of social networks, whether the residents of CADO would support the "creation of the republic" today - the overwhelming majority provides negative replies.
