Connection of the Vodafone mobile operator in the territory of CDLO has been restored. Separatist media reported this on the evening of August 9 with reference to the fake "Ministry of Communications of the DNR". At the same time, it is specified that the connection was restored "after the accident in the LNR".
Occupation authorities of CDLO decided to extend the "powers of head and deputies of the People's Council of the LNR", naturally, having passed their decision off as "initiative of the public". According to separatist media, the need for "extension of the term of office" was caused allegedly by the fact that "the LNR authorities launched the process of collecting citizens' proposals" regarding a certain "development program". Previously, such an initiative was stated by the "DNR" "public".

Now, when there were few days left before the beginning of academic year, some fake "officials" and directors of schools and lyceums began to force the parents to "voluntary" purchase of school uniforms.

The level of grain harvest in the fields of the occupied part of Donetsk oblast is projected to be much lower than last year, what will inevitably lead to higher prices for bread. This was written by one of the propagandists of the Russian World, militant and separatist Yevgeniy Tinianskiy (the nickname is "Karaul") with reference to his own sources. "I was informed that a closed meeting was just held in the Ministry of Agroindustrial Complex of the DNR. The grain harvest is projected to be 42% (!!!!) lower than last year. There are no reserves. In this regard, it is already planned to raise the price of bread and flour for the already poor population", - the militant wrote.
