Russian-occupied cities of Luhansk region on verge of environmental disaster due to trash

Russian authorities are not cleaning up the trash from the neighborhoods. This is causing a serious environmental problem in the cities of the temporarily occupied Luhansk region

Artem Lysohor, who leads the Luhansk regional military administration, stated this.

"The cities in the occupied Luhansk region are very close to having a big environmental problem. Even though the situation in the areas taken over last year could be partly blamed on fighting and lots of damage, the cities that were taken over in 2014 are in this situation because of how they are being run," he said.

Lysohor explained that local residents are having a hard time with getting rid of their household trash. People in the Sievierodonetsk area and in Khrustalne, which has been under Russian control since 2014, are particularly dissatisfied with how the occupation authorities are handling this issue.

"For almost nine years, the people in Khrustalne have not seen Russia trying to make their lives better," he pointed out.

He also said that in response to many requests to deal with this problem before the so-called first elections, the temporary occupation authorities only sent four garbage trucks to the so-called LPR for the entire region. Lysohor mentioned that they seem to think that the local people should manage on their own.

  • Earlier, it was reported that the Russian occupiers had chosen a few of the least damaged nine-story buildings in Sievierodonetsk, which had been destroyed by them. They plan to fix them up just for show.
  • There is also a serious problem with people's well-being in the cities of the Luhansk region that are now controlled by Russia. The occupiers are not fixing the destroyed homes and infrastructure.

  • The National Resistance Center also said that the Russians are setting up garbage dumps in the parts of Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson, and Zaporizhzhia regions that they occupy. They are bringing garbage there from Russia.
