Head of the Civil-military cooperation Colonel Oleksii Nozdrachov said in an interview to Censor.NET.
"It is not only about humanitarian aid and evacuation (first of all, of children). It is about restoration of infrastructure as well. We are actively involved in restoration of electricity, gas, and water supply. We also contribute to the exchange of prisoners. All this is possible thanks to the favorable attitude of the local population," he said.

The local population started treating us radically better. Marinka was released a year ago and our group immediately entered the town. Besides hungry, exhausted people, who were afraid of Ukrainian troops, we witnessed the catastrophic state of the city, especially in the matters of supply. Now the attitude has changed. If then the support ranged from 20 to 30%, now it reached 80-85%.

"The most low suport is observed in the Luhansk region. It is still difficult to work there. The Donetsk region remains more pro-Ukrainian," he said.
Now, when we are more or less involved in the life of the Donetsk region, we will switch to the Luhansk region. I hope that the opening of the center in Sievierodonetsk town will give an impetus to this," he added.
