"Head of the DPR delegation" at the Minsk Contact Group: "The intentions of the Ukrainian authorities to abandon the so-called ATO in the Donbass and instead take measures to "reintegrate" the region is unlikely to lead to peace. Ukraine already signed agreements aimed at a peaceful settlement of the conflict. However, in three years, none of the points of this agreement was fulfilled. Moreover, even the first point has not been fulfilled - they have not stopped shooting".
Media: "The representatives of Ukraine will try to use the nearest meeting in Minsk to imitate the implementation of agreements by presenting the draft law on the reintegration of Donbass that was not agreed with the LPR and DPR. This was stated by the authorized representative of the LPR in the Contact Group Vladislav Danego".
"Chairman of the People's Council of the LPR Vladimir Degtyarenko”: "Covering themselves with the new format of the ATO, the authorities of Ukraine are trying to organize open military operations in the front-line areas, and in fact legalize and justify the daily shelling that is being conducted across the territories of the republics. Kyiv’s plan is another nonentity, unlike the program for the reunification of the Donbass people, operating in the republics".
"Minister of Emergency Situations of the LPR" Sergei Ivanushkin: "The activities for water supply, that have been approved by the recovery plan, are now on schedule. Before the end of this week, additional wells will be launched, and we will add up to 5 thousand cubic meters of water supply per day".
Media: "On June 19 in the DPR there were malfunctions in the work of mobile operator MTS Ukraine (Vodafone) due to the failure of a specialized automatic telephone station. This was reported by the Minister of Communications of the DPR Viktor Yatsenko. "One of the MSC has failed. MTS specialists have eliminated the damage. At the moment, the process of restoring the working capacity of the mobile communications segment of the MTS is underway", - Yatsenko explained".
