The so-called "LNR" announced a secret letter of leader of the "republic" Leonid Pasechnik with a request to the "DNR" leadership to save the mines of the occupied part of Luhansk oblast from closure. The photo of the letter was posted by supporter of the "republics" Nikolai Vulich on social network. The letter notes that "due to the decline in the efficiency of mines" in the occupied Luhansk region and "decline in exports to the Russian Federation and Ukraine", the mines will be forced to stop coal mining, what in turn will cause discontent among miners and reduce public support for the authorities of the "republic". In this regard, Pasechnik asks the "DNR" leader Denis Pushilin to send experts from the "Ministry of Coal" in order to "introduce the experience" of the occupied Donetsk region in the "LNR" mines.

However, having realized the fallacy of his step, he expressed his readiness to testify regarding the criminal activities of the Russian terrorist forces in Ukraine.
The occupation authorities operating in Debaltseve abandoned plans to create a waterfall in the city center. This was reported by the so-called "administration" of the city, controlled by the militants. "On behalf of "head of the Debaltseve administration" Igor Zakharevich, it was planned to build a waterfall in the city center opposite the building of the School of Art. "However, the administration began to receive numerous requests from residents of the city to set a playground. In this regard, work will be done to fill the pit for the further setting of a new playground", - the report said.
