People live without power and water supply in temporarily occupied territories of Luhansk region — Artem Lysohor
People live without electricity and water supply in the temporarily occupied territories of Luhansk region located near the demarcation line.
Artem Lysohor, Head of Luhansk Oblast Military Administration, made this statement at a briefing at Media Center Ukraine — Ukrinform.
“There are no changes here. The “russian world” has a habit of telling people that everything is fine with them and everything is being done for them here, exactly the same thing is happening in the occupied territories. All the so-called newly annexed subjects, those near the demarcation line, live without electricity and water supply. If in Severodonetsk, they connected some districts and quarters to the electrical grid, then in Lysychansk, there is nothing of the kind. Because there is no power supply, and in general the situation is very, very bad,” he pointed out.
According to Artem Lysohor, it is practically impossible to leave the temporarily occupied territories of Luhansk region.
“Currently, leaving is very problematic, and it is almost impossible. This especially applies to the male population, as the units of the so-called police, the so-called local Ministry of State Security, are in full control. People are simply not given such an opportunity. People there take their various issues to that “authority,” and in most cases, if men turn to them, they are immediately mobilized and taken away,” he explained.
According to the head of Luhansk Oblast Military Administration, the occupiers are trying to force people in the occupied territories to get russian passports. However, he noted, they don’t have much success.
“They strongly insist on signing up with banks in order to receive at least some funds, as well as on getting passports and all other documents. They are trying to implement russian legislation. So far, it lags and sags. I think we will return these territories soon, and this parody of authorities will not have time to take root there.”
