MOSCOW, February 5. /TASS/. Authorities of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) have started developing a domestic mobile network operator, DPR Minister of Communications Viktor Yatsenko told a press briefing at the Donetsk News Agency on Thursday.
"The Ministry of Communications has started full-scale work on developing a domestic mobile network operator on the territory of DPR," Yatsenko said. "It will be a national operator. First of all, it will cover the territory of the republic and possibly also territory of the friendly LPR (Luhansk People’s Republic)," he added.
On Wednesday, Ukrainian mobile network operator Kyivstar issued a statement on discontinuing operations on the territory of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions not controlled by the Kiev authorities.
