January 8: The Lugansk Academic Puppet Theatre hosted the Lugansk Communists and Komsomol, who organized a wonderful New Year performance for the children of Lugansk.
This unforgettable experience impressed the young audience and adults alike. The performance did not cease to amaze with an intriguing storyline, exciting interactive games with the audience, and vivid and memorable characters.
Each year, the Communists and Komsomol members organize these holidays for the children of Lugansk. This year, the celebration would not have been possible without the assistance of our friends and comrades from Russia, the U.S., and many European countries. And we want to say a huge “thank you” for their support.
“A great event was held today,” was Lugansk Communists leader Maxim Chalenko’s impression. “In Lugansk, 200 boys and girls attended the puppet theater and received gifts from Santa Claus. What’s remarkable is the assistance we had from our American, Russian and Italian friends.
“Our children in Lugansk have had to grow up quickly, not in years, but in their thinking,” said Anna Brekhova, leader of the Lugansk Komsomol organization. “And I am pleased that, despite what they have lived through, they still believe in miracles. I hope that thanks to these performances, they will once again be free to be children — that they will not be afraid of explosions and loud noises, just have fun and laugh cheerfully, enjoying life every day.”
