LUGANSK, August 19. /TASS/. More than 95% of citizens who fled the conflict have already returned to the self-proclaimed Lugansk and Donetsk People’s Republics after reconstruction, LPR head Igor Plotnitsky said on Friday.
"We have restored schools, social facilities, infrastructure, railways and industry. Today all this is working," Plotnitsky was quoted by the LuganskInformCenter as saying.
The citizens are returning to the republics as they "see the difference" between the conditions there and in the territory controlled by the Kiev authorities, he said. "This shows that people have not just come back home, they trust us."
