In the Joint center for control and coordination of the ceasefire in the Donbas (SCCC) from 17 to 24 March, there were 40 applications for the repair works of the damaged infrastructure, however, the representatives of individual regions of Donetsk and Lugansk regions (ORDA) refuse to provide security guarantees, according to the Ukrainian side of the JCCC.
In particular, according to the Ukrainian JCCC representatives in the press center of the ATO headquarters in the social network Facebook on Saturday, the requests for repairs received from heads of the enterprises of the DTEK “Donetskoblenergo”, utility enterprise “Company “Water of Donbass”, PJSC “Ukrzaliznytsia” branch “Donetsk Railway” and the Trading house “Oil”, located on the territories controlled by Kiev and parts of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions.
“By the Armed forces of Ukraine, and also military-civilian administrations take all necessary measures to carry out repair works which are to provide security guarantees and the establishment of a “regime of silence” in areas where repair crews work on the territory controlled by the Ukrainian government and ORDO”, – stated in the message.
It is noted that the Ukrainian side agreed on 19 of the 40 requests to carry out works, including on the territory controlled by Kiev – 6, adjacent – 1, on-site ORDO – 5.
“However, such work cannot be carried out in the last week due to the failure on the part IDLO in providing similar security guarantees. The Russian side SCCC provided written notice of the security guarantees from the management ORDO only 15 of the 40 applications in this repair work are assumed to be exclusively in the area ORLO”, – stated in the message.
According to the Ukrainian side of the JCCC, the Russian side of the Joint center does not pay proper attention to ensure the repair works to restore electricity and water supply of cities throughout the Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
“By doing so, the user ORDO once again violates international law openly neglects the interests of the citizens, the provisions of the Minsk agreements and deliberately creates conditions for deterioration of the humanitarian situation in the cities”, – said the Ukrainian side of the JCCC.
