Occupiers of certain areas of the Luhansk oblast are trying to legitimize through the OSCE SMM their fake about "Ukrainian terrorists" who allegedly blew up a gas pipeline in the Lutuhyne district. This follows from the information posted on the CALO outreach resources. No evidence of the allegations was presented. By the "documents" handed over to the OSCE SMM, the occupiers mean a certain "final certificate" of the fake "LNR MIA" and photographs from the site of the gas pipeline accident. At the same time, information about the incident is absent in the January 15 daily report of the OSCE SMM, that is, occupation authorities of the "LNR" provided the Mission with no access to the site of the incident, and did not even verbally report it.
Five people died and seven were injured in fires in the occupied territory of Donetsk oblast over the past week. This was reported by the fake "DNR Ministry of Emergency Situations". In total, 37 fires occurred in CADO during the week.
The curfew in the occupied areas of Donetsk oblast (CADO) was canceled in the night of January 19. Separatist media wrote this. The occupiers took this step, since the Orthodox holiday of the Epiphany is celebrated in the night of January 19. At the same time, the "Minister of Internal Affairs of the DNR" was instructed to organize increased patrolling while the curfew was lifted.
