Sixty thousand people are staying in the Government-controlled territory of Luhansk Oblast. Serhiy Haidai, Head of Luhansk Oblast Military Administration, reported this at his press briefing in Ukraine Media Center.

About 350,000 lived there before the commencement of the full-fledged assault by russians.

The evacuation of the Oblast is going on. Luhansk Oblast Military Administration called upon residents of Luhansk Oblast to leave the region for some time because a new assault by invaders and the intensification of hostilities were expected soon.
