Russia doesn't intend to rebuild occupied Popasna in Luhansk region
Russia's Minister of Construction and Housing and Communal Services Irek Faizullin says that the occupied Popasna, Luhansk region, will not be rebuilt, as there are almost no people left in the city
This is reported by the Russian propaganda agency TASS.
The official complained about the lack of funding for restoration work in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine.
"It is possible that we will not restore some cities under these conditions. Popasna used to be a city of 100,000 people, nothing is left, only seven locals live there, and they don't want to leave their houses. We are not doing anything there yet," said Faizullin.
Popasna has been under Russian control since May 8, 2022.
- In March, the Luhansk Military Administrative District reported that Popasna was not included in the list of towns and municipal districts approved by the Russian occupation administration. In other words, Popasna was effectively excluded from all documents, as if it did not exist.
