Gift from Makeyevka Komsomol presented to resident of Volgograd Region
The only case of bestowing the Award of Honor of the Leninist Young Communist League of the Donetsk People’s Republic to a resident of Russia occurred in the Volgograd region.
In February 2018, Anton Saenko, first secretary of the Makeyevka City Committee of the Komsomol of the DPR, at the invitation of the Volgograd Regional Committee of the Young Communist League of the Russian Federation, visited the hero city of Volgograd and held a series of meetings with youth, members of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, the Union of Soviet Officers and others. This trip played a big role in the development of relations between the Makeyevka city organization of the Komsomol of the DPR and the entire organization in the Republic with comrades from Volgograd.
After this visit, Komsomol members of Volgograd and Makeyevka began active cooperation, which includes exchanging interesting information about what is happening both in the Russian Federation and the Donetsk People’s Republic. More and more people in Volgograd began to learn about how citizens of the Republic live, not just from TV and the Internet.
While communicating with Yevgeny Rozhkov, a young activist and supporter of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation who lives in the Volgograd region, it turned out that in his hometown of Surovikino, which, like Stalingrad, was drenched with blood during the Great Patriotic War, lives a lonely elderly woman who devoted all her life to serving the people, thereby fulfilling the most noble mission.
Information about the life of Galina Nikolaevna Nekrasova of Surovikino, who is a member of the city party organization of the CPRF, immediately became known to all Makeyevka Komsomol members. At a meeting of the city committee of the Komsomol, they decided to award Galina Nikolaevna with the Award of Honor. This is currently the highest award of the Komsomol organization.
On July 4, Yevgeny Rozhkov, along with his comrades in Surkovikino, went to visit the lonely pensioner, who did not expect this visit, and handed her the Award of Honor, as well as flowers, at the request and instructions of the Makeyevka city committee of the Komsomol. Despite her advanced age, the pensioner is forced to work for extra money to pay for housing and utilities.
“How did they hear about me in Donbass?” Galina Nikolayevna asked, barely holding back tears, looking at the young people as if she somehow felt guilty.
The guests told the woman that in Makeyevka, her loyalty to the Motherland, selfless service to the people and loyalty to communist ideals are known by the local Komsomols and Communists.
“Galina Nikolaevna shared with us her feelings and experiences: admiration for the inhabitants of Donbass, who defend their independence, reminiscences of the Soviet Union, and her confidence that we will all live again as one family of fraternal peoples — friendly, strong and truly indestructible. And I felt a lump in my throat. Galina Nikolaevna conveyed words of gratitude and heartfelt greetings to the Communists and Komsomol members of the DPR, hugged us, kissed and cried, but, in my opinion, still did not quite understand what had happened,” said Yevgeny Rozhkov after the meeting.
