KIEV, October 17. /TASS/. More than 2,000 houses have been damaged in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) during Kiev’s military operation there, the DPR housing and utilities minister, Vasily Rassadnikov, told TASS.
“The figures are not complete yet. Over 2,000 residential buildings have been damaged to various extents, half of them are private residential houses, one-story housing,” Rassadnikov said.
“Regarding multistory buildings, the damage is varied. There are buildings where entire blocks of apartments are destroyed, and there are those where separate apartments are destroyed, that’s where shells directly hit the buildings,” he said.
The minister said work to inspect the buildings is currently being conducted. “It’s a matter of more than one day, it’s hard work for a long period,” Rassadnikov said.
He said special commissions and local self-government bodies are working to rehouse people whose apartments have been damaged too much.
The parties to the Ukrainian conflict - Kiev and the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s republics in Ukraine’s east - agreed on a ceasefire at talks mediated by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) on September 5 in Belarusian capital Minsk. The ceasefire took effect the same day.
