Head of the Luhansk regional military and civil administration Heorhii Tuka said at a press conference in Sieverodonetsk, Censor.NET reports citing L і ga.
"More than 20 towns and villages in the Luhansk region have virtually got no authorities now: there are no councils, no mayors and no possibility to establish civil-military administrations," Tuka said.
The press service of the Luhansk regional military and civil administration has specified that the statement of the governor of the Luhansk region primarily concerned towns and villages at the front line, such as the town of Shchastia, for example.
Tuka added that there was similar situation in the Donetsk region.
Among the reasons for the absence of local authorities he named the fact that the bill to amend the law on military and civilian administrations was submitted to the Verkhovna Rada back in August.
"When voting on the most recent amendments, the lawmakers in good faith have registered an amendment that freezes registration of new military and civilian administrations," Tuka said.
