276 cases of coronavirus disease were counted over in the occupied areas of Donetsk oblast over the past day. This was reported by the fake "DNR Ministry of Health". At the same time, judging by the "official" statistics, a record number of patients died in CADO over this day - 59. Thus, it was reported that the total number of cases of COVID-19 infection in the occupied territory of Donetsk region is 47 525, 3851 patients are undergoing treatment (inpatient and outpatient), 3580 people died (3521 deaths were reported on the previous day). The occupiers also identified 152 cases of "usual" pneumonia over the day. Of these, 119 patients were hospitalized. A total of 1606 patients with pneumonia are being treated, of which 711 are on oxygen support (+47 over the day).
About 1.5 thousand miners lost their jobs due to the liquidation of coal enterprises by the occupation authorities of CALO. This followed from the message of the so-called "republican employment center". Thus, the "employment center" reported that they were approached by more than a thousand of the dismissed miners in search of a new job. It followed from the message of the occupational "labor exchange" that 563 participants in the program have been assigned unemployment benefits. At the same time, the same report noted that the center "helped to find work every second from the beginning of the program for the employment of workers of the liquidated mines". Thus, if we assume that the number of beneficiaries and a new job is approximately the same, we can talk about 1100-1200 miners thrown out of the mines liquidated in CADO. But these are only those who have registered at the "employment center". According to this very center, it covers about 77% of the participants in the program to assist the employment of former miners. It turns out that more than 20% of them did not register at the "employment center". Thus, we can talk about 1.5 thousand former workers of the mines liquidated by the CALO occupiers. Apparently, the number of miners "laid off" at the CALO mines is even greater. According to OstroV, all the mines of the the Donbasantratsyt association (Krasnyi Luch - Khrustalnyi) were stopped and subsequently flooded back in 2015.
There are 42 unfinished apartment buildings in the occupied territory of Donetsk oblast, and the "DNR" residents decided to start completing them from next year. Separatist media wrote about this. Thus, Sergey Naumets, who calls himself "the Minister of Construction, Housing and Utilities", told that 42 unfinished projects were multi-apartment residential buildings with a total area of 240 840 sq. m. with a construction readiness of 50-80%. "Upon completion of the construction of the above facilities, it will be possible to obtain 3 234 apartments, which will make it possible to resettle the residents of houses destroyed as a result of hostilities", - Naumets said.
The coronavirus vaccine imported from the Russian Federation was perceived in CADO with apprehension. This was written in the separatist segment of social networks. "It turns out that both republics got not even Sputnik V, but the most unexplored drug, which is especially despised in the Russian Federation and is called the "vaccine of migrants". It is believed that the vaccine was invented so that Moscow would not be left without maintenance personnel from Tajikistan and other countries - migrant workers are vaccinated with Sputnik Light. It is clear that we are not in a position to sort out vaccines - probably, "light" is better than nothing at all", - a blogger popular in the local segment of social networks wrote. "The vaccine is shoddy and has not passed all stages of testing… To inject "light" or wait? You need to understand that there are no guarantees, because all deliveries are carried out at an unofficial level - all agreements are solely in word. No obligations and no responsibility for possible side effects", - was noted in social networks.
The Luhansk woman received six years in prison for "high treason". This was said in the message of the so-called "Prosecutor General's Office" of the "LNR". According to the occupiers, the woman was allegedly recruited by the SBU in March 2017, "from that moment until May 2020, she joined the service of the LNR people's militia on the instructions of the special services and transmitted information about incidents and situation in the defense department and law enforcement units of the Republic to foreign intelligence". "The defendant admitted guilt in the crimes she was charged with in full, repented of what she had done, and also, during the preliminary investigation, actively contributed to the disclosure of the SBU agent network and the exposure of the Ukrainian secret service personnel", - the message said.
