On November 2, 2014, Sende Rovich on Facebook shared this photo of what looks like draft notices issued by the so-called Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR) to Donetsk city residents on October 31, 2014. Notice that these letters make references to laws of the Russian Federation. My translation from Russian follows.
