Head of the Luhansk military and civil administration Heorhii Tuka has described Russia's tactics of the Donbas infrastructure destruction in an interview with Liga, Censor.NET reports.
"I spoke to experts who were engaged in the restoration of infrastructure in Georgia after the Russian intervention. Unfortunately, their experience shows that the Russians leave scorched earth behind. The infrastructure - hospitals, schools, bridges, and enterprises - is intentionally destroyed... We receive reports from the other side that our enterprises are taken to the territory of Russia. They are disassembled and subsequently assembled in Russia. But there are numerous cases when the enterprises are simple sold for scrap. There are also enterprises that have come to a condition which makes it almost impossible to restart their work due to process discipline violations. For example, according to my information, we will have a big, almost infeasible problem with restoration of the ferroalloy plant," Tuka said.
Also, according to Tuka, the issue of mines flooded by the militants is already tackled at the international level: "It's a problem that we have already stumbled upon. It is being studied at the highest international level."
