Collaborators are constantly being unmasked in Donetsk Oblast, and some of the Russian strikes on the oblast are the result of the work of traitors.

Quote: "We have to face the truth and talk about it. Collaborators are constantly being exposed. The number of such people in criminal proceedings can only be named by investigators. Collaborators exist and they continue to act, and some of the attacks that take place in the territory of Donetsk Oblast, strikes on infrastructure facilities, are not the mega-work of the Russian secret services, but the result of the work of traitors."


Details: Kyrylenko said 95,701 residential buildings, 746 educational institutions and 216 medical institutions in Donetsk Oblast have been damaged or destroyed due to the Russian Federation’s full-scale war against Ukraine. 

Excluding casualties in Mariupol and Volnovakha, as of mid-June, 1,560 residents of Donetsk Oblast have been killed and 3,689 have sustained injuries of varying degrees of severity as a result of Russia’s aggression. 148 children in the oblast have been killed and 290 injured.

About 530,000 people still live in the oblast, whereas there were 1,800,000 residents before the full-scale war.

About 40,000 children remain in the oblast.

"If we consider settlements such as Zalizne, Pivdenne and New-York, where there is constant shelling, then in the Toretsk hromada and part of the Bakhmut district, the focus of our attention is currently the 286 children in need of mandatory evacuation. [A hromada is an administrative unit designating a town, village or several villages and their adjacent territories – ed.] This work is ongoing. I have given [my employees] one month to report from the field on the evacuation of children and parents who don't want to do it. This really only concerns parents because their child will go with them; we do realise this," Kyrylenko said.
