Donetsk teachers have appealed to their countrymen to help free them from terrorist militants. They rallied on the Donetsk Bridge with Ukrainian flags in their hands.

The teachers point out that what is happening now in Donetsk is an absolute outrage.  Pro-Ukrainian teachers are being kidnapped and tortured.

Message signed by activist teachers:

“Donetsk Oblast is currently ruled by terrorist groups that have subordinated local authorities, taken over private buildings and industrial plants, organized their own tax system and bank, and intervened in the health and education sector. They consistently and persistently destroy anything Ukrainian that was created earlier in the Donbas. They have banned Ukrainian symbols, the Ukrainian language is perceived as a provocation, and anything said in defense of Ukraine or the Ukrainian Army is viewed as direct enemy propaganda. We are in a state of complete psychological isolation with regard to information. We are asking our countrymen to help us and liberate our land! Sincerely, Donetsk Ukrainians.”
