KIEV, December 14. /TASS/. Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko ordered heads of law enforcement authorities to work on supplies of heat and electricity to the people living in Donbass, the presidential press service reported on Sunday.
“We should be sure people have opportunities to survive under the complicated conditions,” he told at meeting with heads of law enforcement authorities.
The president also touched upon humanitarian assistance to people living in Donbass, supplies of food products and medicines to Ukrainian citizens who are in the territories controlled by Kiev.
“They have the right and opportunity to rely on state support,” Ukraine’s president said.
In compliance with the presidential order of November 15, Ukraine’s government stopped at certain territories in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions work of state companies and organisations. The country’s National Bank was ordered to undertake measures to stop serving bank accounts’ operations.
Apart from that, Poroshenko positively assessed the ceasefire regime in eastern Ukraine that came into force from December 9. At the same time, he called for more energetic efforts to realease all prisoners of wars. He set a task for agencies concerned to take efforts to have “all those on the lists of prisoners of war return home by Christmas.” He said there were not more than 600 such people.
Authorities of self-proclaimed Lugansk and Donetsk People’s Republics called Poroshenko’s order “an act of genocide and robbing the people.”.
