The Donbas militants don’t give guarantees of safety for conducting a renovation of the mobile connection equipment of Ukrainian phone provider on the occupied territory of Donetsk region, the JCCC informed, according to the Ukrainian Army HQ on Facebook.
The phone connection has already been renovated in Luhansk region. However, the Donetsk militants don’t guarantee the safety of the workers to renovate the equipment near Elenovka (Donetsk region), although the guarantees have been given by the Ukrainian Army and would be facilitated by the OSCE SMM.
The JCCC sees such actions as lack of interest in renovating the connection. As of now, the only phone providers available for civilians in occupied territories are the ones militants “nationalized”. As there’s no competition and they have established a monopoly, the prices for mobile connection soared. Vodafone-Ukraine is the last Ukrainian provider partly working in the occupied territory.
