On July 30, representatives of the People's Front of Novorossia said the Donetsk and Lugansk republics were faced with a humanitarian catastrophe.
In such situations in Africa and the Middle East, the entire world provides humanitarian aid, Tsaryov said, adding "Nobody, but Russia, provides aid for us".
About 50,000 people were left without electricity in the city of Luhansk, 5,000 without water and 4,000 without gas, the chairman of the front's executive committee, Alexander Zinchenko, said. The Luhansk republic's Prime Minister Marat Bashirov confirmed the information.
