LUGANSK, September 9. /ITAR-TASS/. Some 2,500 refugees return to the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) daily, LPR head Igor Plotnitsky said Tuesday.
“Our borders are always open for people. If the Ukrainian side does not let them go, we are ready to resolve these issues,” Plotnitsky told journalists.
He said citizens’ property will not be confiscated in the republic.
Fierce clashes between troops loyal to Kiev and local militias in the southeastern Ukrainian Donetsk and Lugansk regions during Kiev’s military operation to regain control over the breakaway territories have killed hundreds of civilians, brought massive destruction and forced hundreds of thousands to flee Ukraine’s southeast.
The parties to the Ukrainian conflict agreed on a ceasefire during mediated talks in Belarusian capital Minsk on September 5.
