Leader of the "LNR" Leonid Pasechnik has admitted that the city of Popasna was completely destroyed by the russian invaders and cannot be restored. He told local and russian journalists about this.
"Perhaps we will not restore Popasna, because there is not much point. The city is really destroyed almost completely", - he stated.
About 20 thousand people lived in Popasna until February 2022. The city, or rather, what was left of it after merciless artillery and rocket attacks, was captured by the invaders on May 8, 2022.
