ILOVAISK, October 14. /TASS/. Infrastructure and buildings in the city of Ilovaisk in the Donetsk region will be restored by captured Ukrainian servicemen, the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic Prime Minister Alexander Zakharchenko said on Tuesday.
The city was destroyed in combat actions in summer, he said. “These 98 people were captured here. Let them look at what they did. They will restore the city. They will work as miners and masons,” Zakharchenko said during the inspection trip.
The government sees its priority in launching enterprises in the city, the Donetsk railway line and the Ilovaisk mines to allow people receive wages for buying something, he said.
Serious damage has been caused to Ilovaisk during the shelling, Zakharchenko said. "Problems are the same everywhere - there is no water and no electricity. The city withstood many attacks. The city is heroic. We’ll deal with restoring enterprises," he added.
