DONETSK, May 8. /ITAR-TASS/. Food supplies have been organized to the north of the Donetsk region, where the Ukrainian armed forces' punitive operation is in its active phase, the region's vice-governor Andriy Nikolayenko told a briefing on Thursday.
"Stores in Sloviansk are supplied with food products in full from wholesalers in the city," he said, adding that supplies without delays would be ensured in accordance with an agreement reached with Ukrainian forces that none of the sides would prevent it.
