The Governor of Lugansk Region Moskal brought humanitarian aid to Novotoshkivske near the front line.

The Parliament of Ukraine voted for the law that regulates military-civilian administrations in the areas where the local administration run away and left people on their own and in the areas with military activities. According to that law Lugansk Regional Administration will be renamed to Regional Military-Civil Administration. That decision was made because there is no Regional Council as its Deputies run away thinking that there will be economic and social collapse in Lugansk Region without them

Because the law isn’t signed by the President of Ukraine and wasn’t published, it means it’s not working yet, so Regional Administration took responsibility to supply food and things needed to the villages located on the front line that were left without local authorities. Almost every day we send humanitarian cargo to the villages that suffer from military activities. On Thursday February 5 2015 it was the 3rd time when we brought a truck with food, medicine, plastic for windows, soap and so on to Novotoshkivske which is located close to Ukrainian checkpoint #29 on “Bakhmutka” road. The day before we arrived the villages was under heavy fire from MRLS “Grad”. The rockets landed in the central part of the village and destroyed all shops that were there (they didn’t work over two weeks already as there were no supply of goods). Most of the houses in Novotoshkivske are damaged, some are destroyed and it’s not possible to restore them. Locals who are still there (that’s about 250 people) survive only because of humanitarian aid that we bring.

– Hennadiy Moskal, the Governor of Lugansk Region.

Ukrainian police units evacuate civilians from Tryokhizbenka on the front line.

Mobile unit of special police battalion “St. Nikolay” together with legendary police officer Leonid Pantykin evacuated people from Tryokhizbenka village located in Lugansk Region.

There are no Ukrainian Army units in Tryokhizbenka, but terrorists keep shelling at it using mortars and tanks from the side of Slovyanoserbsk village that they control. Obviously they want to destroy the village to the ground and claim that was done by Ukrainian Army.

After the shelling many houses are totally destroyed and it’s not possible to live there. Many locals already left the village, but some couldn’t do that. So they became the target for the terrorists. Soldiers saw the grave of a killed child in one of the yards…

Several women and a child with a fever were evacuated from the village. His mother was wounded. The medic of the unit gave her all needed help. The unit also evacuated some old woman who couldn’t get her pension for 8 months already.
