VIENNA, November 11. /TASS/. About 2,400 houses were damaged and need repair in Luhansk, the capital of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People's Republic, according to a report of the Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) for November 10 published on the organization’s website Tuesday.
“The SMM met the ‘acting mayor’ of Luhansk City who stated that currently approximately 400 multi-storey buildings and 2,000 private houses need to be repaired in the city,” the mission said.
“The interlocutor informed the SMM that at present only social enterprises are entitled to free construction materials for repairs, which is part of the humanitarian aid delivered by the Russian Federation. The interlocutor added that the next convoy with construction material from the Russian Federation is scheduled to arrive next week,” the report said.
Fierce clashes between troops loyal to Kiev and local militias in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions during Kiev’s military operation, conducted since mid-April, to regain control over the breakaway southeastern territories, which call themselves the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s republics, have killed over 4,000 people.
The parties to the Ukrainian conflict agreed on a ceasefire at OSCE-mediated talks on September 5 in Belarusian capital Minsk two days after Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed his plan to settle the situation in the east of Ukraine.
The ceasefire took effect the same day but has reportedly occasionally been violated.
