There is not a single confirmed case of COVID-19 in the "republic". From today, residents arriving in the "republic" from the Russian Federation will also undergo a self-isolation regime", - the message said.

The so-called "Prosecutor General's Office of the DNR "opened a "criminal case" against ex-president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko "on suspicion of organizing the murder of militant commander Arsen Pavlov "Motorola", - separatist media wrote.

Basic foodstuffs have risen in price in the occupied part of Donetsk oblast over the past two weeks by 10% or more. This was reported by author of the popular in the occupied Donbass Telegram channel "Donetsk Aborigine". "Basic vegetables - 10-15%, for example, potatoes - from 18-20 rubles per kilogram to 25-30. Sugar from an early price of 24-25 rubles rose in retail chains to 36-38 and 40-50 rubles in the markets. All cereals took a jump in the same percentage - 10% for retail chains and 20% for the market. Price increase affected the remaining less mass products a shade less, sunflower oil (5-7%) and the like", - the author wrote. The "Donetsk Aborigine" notes that the rise in price could be attributed to the hype created by the population against the background of the situation with coronavirus, but it is also a matter of the fact that the occupation authorities have been mowing exporters and wholesalers for years, from those staying afloat, who did not fall under the MIA outrage - only those who are under a share roof with Pushilin (the "DNR" leader - ed.)".
