Arrow Stalino Oblast

The Animals - House of the Rising Sun..

Donetsk Oblast Flag...
Until November 1961, it bore the name Stalino Oblast, as its capital Donetsk was named Stalino in honour of Joseph Stalin at that time..On April 7, 2014, following the 2014 Crimean crisis, separatists occupying the Donetsk Oblast administrative building declared independence from Ukraine and held a referendum on separating from Ukraine on May 11, 2014.. Subsequently, the War in Donbass started.. After Donetsk was under control of the separatist government, the Donetsk Oblast administration was relocated to Mariupol, and later to Kramatorsk..The state historic-architectural preserve near the city of Sviatohirsk with the Sviatohirsk Lavra was nominated for the Se7en Wonders of Ukraine..The basic minerals found here are: coal (reserves – 25 billion tons), rock salt, lime carbonate, potassium, mercury, asbestos, and graphite.. The area is also rich in fertile black earth..There are about 26 health centres and pensions, 52 rest homes and boarding houses, and rest camps for children in the oblast..Overall, the Donetsk Oblast contains about 70 objects of nature and park fund including branches of the Ukrainian steppe park, six state reserves,10 memorials of nature, landscapes, and 6 park tracts... are not the kind of people who, when the word "anarchism" is mentioned, turn away contemptuously and say with a supercilious wave of the hand: "Why waste time on that, it's not worth talking about.. We think that such cheap "criticism" is undignified and useless...
