A little over 10 K local residents remain in Sievierodonetsk. All the rest are russian military personnel, their families and other touring guests. The invaders do not have enough money to rebuild the public utilities. The occupiers forge property documents and sell the surviving empty apartments.

Luhansk Regional Military Administration reports that the All-Ukrainian Trade Union of Military, Law Enforcement Officers and Combatants is headed by Oleksandr Svystula, a resident of Luhansk, known as the long-time head of the Association of ATO/JFO Participants of Luhansk Oblast.
