Leader of the "LNR" Leonid Pasechnik banned Ukrainians who do not have registration in CALO from entering the occupied territory of Ukraine. This was said in the "decree" he signed. Thereafter, entry into the occupied territory of the Luhansk oblast for citizens of Ukraine who do not have registration in CALO is allowed only on the basis of the lists compiled by a certain working group. The lists may include Ukrainians entering CALO for treatment, education, caring for sick relatives and burying relatives. These restrictions are introduced allegedly "in connection with the unfavorable epidemiological situation in Ukraine and the threat of the spread of a new coronavirus infection (COVID-19) in the LNR, as well as in order to ensure the safety of citizens of the Luhansk People's Republic". As it was reported earlier, the occupation authorities allow leaving the "LNR" to the territory controlled by the legal authorities for the citizens of Ukraine registered in CALO no more than once a month.
The so-called "LNR Prosecutor General's Office" opened a "criminal case" against citizen of Belarus Roman Protasevich, previously detained in Minsk on suspicion of "extremist activity". Separatist media wrote about this. It was reported that the "case" was initiated "on the fact of participation in the activities of organization, which is recognized as terrorist in accordance with the LNR legislation". The point is that Roman Protasevich voluntarily joined the ranks of Azov in the summer of 2014. "Using heavy weapons - MT-12 cannons, D-30 howitzers, mortars and anti-aircraft mounts, Protasevich committed a number of gravest crimes…", - the message of the occupiers stated. Earlier, leader of the National Corps party Andriy Biletsky confirmed that Protasevich took part in ATO in the Donbas, but only as a journalist.
Another 307 cases of COVID-19 were detected in the occupied part of Donetsk oblast over the day. This was reported by the so-called "DNR Ministry of Health". In addition, another 25 people have died over the past day. In total, as of May 27, 38 183 patients were infected with COVID-19 in CADO, 4248 patients were treated (inpatient and outpatient) and 2859 people died. The occupiers also identified 96 cases of "usual" pneumonia over the day. Of these, 70 patients were hospitalized. In total, 1761 patients with pneumonia are being treated, of which 694 are on oxygen support (+24 over the day).
The Donetsk Metallurgical Plant (DMP), which has been seized by the "DNR" occupiers, and has a so-called "investor", is looking for workers. This was written about in the separatist segment of social networks. A local blogger admits that the enterprise has begun to pay wages, and this, as for the situation in CADLO, is already an achievement. "But now the management and the new "ambitious" investor of the DMP are faced with another problem - personnel. And it is not yet clear how to solve it. We have a lot of vacancies for industrial worker jobs. We need welders, crane operators, loaders… The management of the plant counts on the employees of the ruined metallurgical enterprises, as well as those who left the DMP earlier and left for Russia to work", - the blogger wrote. "Why there is no queue of people wishing to find a job at the DMP is understandable. According to chairman of the trade union of metallurgists and miners of the DNR Igor Zhadan, the average salary of a metallurgist is $245. This is average, he emphasized, many get significantly less. You can earn $550-680 thousand rubles as a storekeeper or bricklayer in the nearest cities of the Russian Federation", - people write in local social networks, specifying that it makes no sense to return to the enterprise where they pay significantly less.
A road traffic accident with three victims happened in the occupied Horlivka. This was reported by the fake "Ministry of Emergency Situations of the DNR". A BMW passenger car collided with a tree on the Kuznetsova-Zubareva street in the Tsentralno-Miskyi district of the city. Three victims were unblocked and removed from the car with the help of hydraulic tools. "They were transferred to the ambulance cars and one of the victims was given first aid. The victims, born in 1987 and 1990, were hospitalized in a medical institution of Horlivka", - the message said.
