Ukraine is going to free civilians who are victims of enforced disappearances, who are subjected to physical, sexual and psychological violence. Citizens of Ukraine are convicted on trumped-up charges of extremism and terrorism. There are also cases when they are in torture chambers without formal charges. 

Oleksandr Kamyshin, Minister for Strategic Industries, says that Ukraine produces analogues of Iranian Shahed-131/136 kamikaze drones. The production capacity in 2024 is no less than that of the aggressor country Russia. 

Armoured vehicles produced by Ukrainian Armor are 30% cheaper than imported ones. Not only in quick repairs at Ukraine’s own factories, but also in long-term testing of machines in the conditions of the war in Donbas. During this time, the designers managed to see the shortcomings and adapt the machines for the war on the territory of Ukraine. New challenges on the battlefield give rise to new vehicle models. Currently, according to the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Ukrainian Armour has created an enlarged version of the Novator vehicle for 10 seats.

Yurii Bielousov, Head of the Department for Combating Crimes Committed in the Context of Armed Conflict of the Prosecutor General’s Office, reported that since November 2023, the number of shooting of surrendered Ukrainian servicemen has increased by russian invaders.

Some businesses are carrying out reconstruction work, but some people have been hired for a specific type of repair. They do not deal with emergencies as there are no such teams in the village. You can call a payphone and try to get one, or walk a few kilometres and write a request, but there is no one to come. 

The residents of the so-called “lpr” were promised to recalculate their pensions according to the legislation of the russian federation. They talked about raising them. However, people are not credited either with preferential experience or some entries in their work record books regarding their total service. In the absence of relevant documents, it is quite difficult to find confirmation of the facts of work in labour records. Therefore, most people receive the smallest pensions like social pensions. They are not allowed to make an appointment to review their pension file. Residents of Lutuhyne and Lysychansk complain most often.
