Serious interruptions in the work of mobile operator Vodafone-Ukraine (MTS) are again observed in the occupied territory of the Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts. Local residents write about this in social networks.
"06:40 Donetsk Vodafone crushed L", "Luhansk Vodafone is not working... noticed that at 06:30", "MTS signal is completely absent. Something happened at night. We saw ambulances and heard gunshots", "08:35… there is Vodafone's signal, but it’s not possible to check the balance", - residents of the CDDLO write.
The operator confirms the problem. "Our specialists are already studying the issue, we are sorry for the inconvenience", - the representatives of Vodafone-Ukraine reported.
The fake "Ministry of Communications" in the CDDO claims that there was "an accident on Vodafone's own telecommunications network" in the occupied part of the Luhansk oblast.
As it was reported earlier, since January 11, Vodafone-Ukraine connection was not available in the "DNR" (in the "LNR", the connection was fully restored on January 19). The residents started to use the so-called "republican" mobile operator Phoenix. However, the local operator could not cope with the flow of subscribers.
The Vodafone signal appeared in the occupied settlements of the Donetsk oblast only on the night of April 28.
Since August 2, Intertelecom connection has disappeared in the occupied territory of the Donetsk oblast. During the absence of the signal of the Ukrainian operator Vodafone, the inhabitants of the CDDO began using services of Intertelecom. It was the only operator, which provided a possibility for the inhabitants of the occupation zone to call to free territory of Ukraine.
