“There is no electricity in the majority of districts,” she said, adding that Internet connection had been lost practically all around the town too. According to the spokeswoman, water supplies had not yet been resumed in the majority of districts.
Massive air strikes and artillery shelling by the Ukrainian army on June 3-4 damaged the town’s central water supply system and water supplies to Sloviansk, Kramatorsk and a number of nearby villages were interrupted. By now, water supplies have been resumed to a number of populated localities.
“Genocide on behalf of the Kiev authorities is at the full steam,” she said. “They (pensioners) paid taxes all their lives, and now the authorities terminated all social payments intended for them.”
She also said the situation is also grave with medicines in the city as there was an extreme shortage of antibiotics, painkillers and bandaging materials.
A military operation, conducted by Kiev against federalization supporters in Ukraine's south-east territories, has already claimed dozens of lives, including civilians. The Donetsk and Luhansk regions held referendums on May 11, in which most voters supported independence from Ukraine.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly dismissed Western claims that Russia could in any way be involved in protests in Ukraine's south-east.
Russia has been insistently urging Kiev to stop the military operation, which involves armored vehicles, heavy artillery and attack aviation, and engage in dialogue with the south-east.
