Relationship of lamprophyre dykes, quarts veins and rupture dislocations of the Olkhovatsko-Volyntsevskaya anticline of the Donbas with the fields of tectonic stresses of Cimmerian age has been considered. Kinematic features of slickensides within the eastern part of the anticline have been studied. Parameters of the fields of tectonic stresses of Cimmerian age have been reconstructed according to orientation of lamprophyre dykes, veins and cross faults as well as the motions along the slickensides. The pulsing character of the fields of stresses has been revealed.
