As of the morning August 9, in Luhansk the situation has not changed and remains critical: for the seventh day the city has been without electricity, water, mobile telephony and fixed communication, Luhansk City Council said in a statement on Saturday.
“Most of the shops are closed, only a few pharmacies are open. Despite the absence of electricity Luhansk bakeries continue to work. Fuel reserves have been exhausted, there are no new supplies,” the report reads.
Banks do not operate, pensions, salaries and social benefits are not paid.
The shelling of the city by pro-Russian terrorists continues, the local authorities said.
