"Luhansk is devoid of power supply, in fact, it is in a state of a humanitarian catastrophe. Some of the population of the regional center has been devoid of water, power supply and telephone and Internet communications since Sunday. Many people have been living in a blackout for a week already. There is no telephone communication in Luhansk itself, and no calls have been put through to the city from elsewhere.
On Tuesday, a total of 250,000 peaceful residents of Luhansk, most of whom are pensioners and families with children who cannot leave because they have nowhere to go, have, in fact, become hostages in their own city. The people have to survive under conditions of an armed confrontation; foodstuffs, which have been scarce at shops which are still open, might vanish altogether any time.
Four city hospitals for peaceful civilians, wounded as a result of artillery attacks, have been partly destroyed.
