News from the territory which is controlled by the Ukrainian government:

The fare from the controlled territory of Ukraine to occupied Luhansk has risen several times. As it is impossible to get there directly, lots of people try to get there through Stanytsya Luhanska. However, seats in buses are limited and the number of them is not enough. That is why people have to pay exorbitant sums of money to illegal taxi drivers, according to “Donbas. Reality”.

Bill # 4301was registered by a group of Verkhovna Rada people’s deputies on indemnification for private accommodation destroyed or damaged during the ATO. The money should be paid out before 2017.
