Staff of the Donbass Tours is a combination of officials, journalists, interpreters, volunteers and local tourism specialists.
Donbass region in the former Ukraine became renown due to the civil war, which began in April 2014 after the western-backed coup in Kiev. The local Russian population were forced to take arms and defend their land, stand for safety, culture and freedom. From the struggle and the popular referendum for Donbass independence, two young and proud republics, the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) and Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR), were born. The war for independence, defensive battles against the Ukrainian armed forces, continues today.
There is no such place like Donbass in the world. We will lead you from the famous slush fields of Ilovaisk, to the battle-scarred sites of Saur-Mogila and Debaltsevo, to the cultural, educational and economic offering of Donetsk and Lugansk capitals. The DPR and LPR offer countless opportunities, and most interesting sites for visitors.
In Donbass, you will feel the peace, beauty and silence, but you can also feel and hear the drums of war, witness the outcome of the geopolitic storm in Europe, misery of the civil war and see the ruins of military aggressions. With patriotic Donbass people, you will see the truth and learn to understand more and better the real nature of the war than you can even imagine.
Notice: Due to war in the region of the republics, the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republic can only be visited (without Russian or Ukrainian passports) by special invitation and in specially arranged friendship tours, like Donbass Tours offers. Only approved and confirmed foreign participants can join these tours.
