The "DNR" militants are building company strong points near occupied Yasynuvata. This was reported in the separatist segment of social networks. This was explained by "a possible breakthrough of the 1st line of defense of the DNR". "The equipment of full-fledged strong points and dugouts is being carried out by "employees of the internal troops" and "the police of the Donetsk People's Republic", - the message said. "They are escalating the situation and trying to convince the population that the danger still exists", - local bloggers wrote in response. At the same time, they admited that ordinary residents of CADO did not believe in reports that "a full-scale murderous war will begin soon" and remain amazingly calm. "No one flies to the border, grabbing his property (well, maybe, except for those who have something to save). People are busy with their daily survival and are more concerned with rising prices, wage arrears, roads and problems in housing and utility sector", - the bloggers stated.
The windows in the building of the so-called "city administration" (where the city council was located until the summer of 2014) in occupied Donetsk were filled with sandbags. This was reported by the townspeople in local publics, having posted a photo. "They were laying the windows with sandbags in the city administration for half a day. Kulemzin (who calls himself the head of the Donetsk "administration" - ed.) pulled on his uniform. Are they afraid? Or they stir up panic to justify the rise in food prices, how should this be understood?", - the Donetsk residents ironized. The Donetsk residents also wrote that sandbags appeared not only in the building of the "city administration", but also in the windows of other "DNR departments". "The whole city is being laid with sacks. Starting with the District Department of Internal Affairs and all buildings of the Ministry of State Security. And the "administration" now. I wonder who in the center will shoot at them through bags of soil?", - residents of occupied Donetsk asked rhetorically.

"More than 3.5 thousand applications were received by the LNR military registration and enlistment offices from residents of the Republic who want to undergo a training program in military occupational specialties in the People's Militia of the LNR", - the occupiers assured.
