Denis Pushilin: Restoration of damaged cable of MTS-Ukraine mobile operator needs security guarantees
The Chairman of the DPR People’s Council gave comments on the situation related to the disruption of the MTS-Ukraine mobile operator’s work to the website of “Zvezda” TV channel.
ʺA cable was cut near the line of contact in the territory temporarily controlled by Ukraine a few days ago. According to preliminary information, it has been cut in several places. Security guarantees are needed to ensure that repair teams can restore it. But “cease-fire regime” is not observed because of shelling. Unfortunately, there is constant shelling carried out by Ukraine along the line of contact,ʺ Denis Pushilin said.
According to him, the OSCE involved itself in addressing this problem.
ʺThe OSCE has already joined the issue and its representatives have already started to engage in this process. Technical experts give pessimistic estimation: repair works can take up to a month. Unfortunately, our capabilities regarding the technical side of communication issue are limited, so there are some difficulties,ʺ Denis Pushilin added.
