The new monetary token of the DPR, probably a precursor to a new currency which will replace the highly unstable Ukrainian hryvnia.

“The state will push” — Boris Alekseevich Litvinov, a relative of the Soviet-era diplomat, emeritus prime minister, and now key economic policy maker of the Donetsk People’s Republic, shown with the author in Donetsk, April 22, 2015. Litvinov told Halyna Mokrushyna of New Cold War.org last November: “We want to build a parliamentarian republic, based on the state’s ownership of land and its resources, of air and water spaces, a state?s strong control of economic process, and a socially oriented state.”

In addition to formulating economic policy, Litvinov can be considered the Thomas Jefferson of his country, since it was he — aided in the drafting by colleagues Cherkashin and Purgin — who worked through the night of April 6 to 7, 2015 to compose the Declaration of Independence of the new People’s Republic of Donetsk. Thomas JeffersonIn contrast to the wildly false and defamatory portrayal of these events by Wikipedia (“The entity was declared on 7 April 2014 by a group of armed and masked militants …”), Litvinov and his associates — all leading intellectuals — carefully studied precedents in international law as they prepared for independence. Livinov has been working with two economic institutes in Moscow in developing his reform plans. The result may establish the DPR as one of the leading laboratories for anti-globalization and anti-IMF economic reform worldwide.
