Famous brands of the U.S. origin – Coca-Cola, Mickey Mouse, Playboy – cause harm and moral decadence, said leader of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic Alexandr Zakharchenko.
At a briefing, leader of Russia-backed militants said that since Ukraine gained independence, “they’ve been inoculating the ideology that is strange, alien to us. We grew up, abiding by such basic values as family, brotherhood, and love for Motherland. But now, we realize that we grow up on Coca-Cola, Mickey Mouse, jeans, Playboy, and so on. They offer us democracy that implies there can be two daddies or two mommies in one family. It’s absolutely unacceptable. The very idea of morality comes with the genes. We just need to explain to our kids that the traditional values should be of priority”.
Previously, the Kremlin agreed to substitute DPR leader Zakharchenko and LPR leader Plotnitsky in exchange for Ukraine’s recognition of militant-organized local elections in Donbas.
