In 2019, the Ukrainian side of the Joint Control and Coordination Center of ceasefire and stabilization of the demarcation line in Donbas processed 880 applications for the provision of the repairs and replacements of damaged infrastructure as the JCCC reported on Facebook.
The Armed Forces of Ukraine provided the security guarantees only toward 56% of the application.
Only 41% of the applications were supported by the occupation authorities of the Russian Federation in Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
It is noted that the Ukrainian side of the JCCC intends to carry out actions aiming for the provision of the security and restoration of the damaged civilian infrastructure of Donbas.
As we reported, the casualty rate of Donbas occupants exceeded 1,5 thousand people in 2019.
