According to CEO at MTS Ukraine (Vodafone) Olga Ustinova informed that the company does not provide technical service to their equipment in the occupied territories of Donbas. The company moved all communications equipment from the ATO area after military activity started, staff is managing the network remotely: “If the base station is no longer in working condition, we do not mend it. Currently just 60-70% of stations are in working condition”, - the CEO mentioned.
