The situation in the Luhansk People's Republic is still complicated, the cities are destroyed and artillery cannonade is heard almost around the clock, said Madina Plieva, the head of the Fund for the wounded who became disabled during the hostilities in South Ossetia from 1992-2008,

On July 12, representatives of the Fund went to Donbass with humanitarian aid to the residents of Lugansk, which was assisted by President Alan Gagloev, the Prosecutor General's Office, and the Ministry of Construction. A monument to the fallen heroes was also delivered to Lugansk on behalf of the invalids of the war for the independence and freedom of South Ossetia.

The heavy burden of the Luhansk and Donetsk residents

As noted by Plieva, during their entire stay in Lugansk, shots and strong roars of large-caliber guns were being constantly heard.

“The city is very destroyed, military pictures of the latest history of South Ossetia immediately arose before our eyes. We perfectly understand the heavy burden of Luhansk and Donetsk residents. It is important for us, as far as possible, to support them and provide all possible assistance. The leadership of our country is also set up for this. Our people know the value of life and wish the fraternal peoples a speedy peaceful life and development of the republics,” she said.

According to Madina Plieva, there are few people in the cities, many, of course, left for the regions of Russia, and the rest of Luhansk residents live in basements. She has added that the inhabitants of the LPR and DPR are in the same position today as the South Ossetian people were before the recognition of the independence of the Republic of South Ossetia by Russia in 2008.

She is confident that soon a peaceful life will begin in these republics and, like South Ossetia, the cities of Lugansk and Donetsk will become prosperous, in which all conditions for a normal peaceful life will be created.

How it all began…

Friendly relations between the Fund of the Wounded and colleagues from the DPR and LPR were established at the beginning of 2021. As the head of the Fund herself recalls, at one of the events she met a delegation from the LPR Prosecutor General's Office - Anastasia Aleshina, head of the department for international cooperation and law-making activities of the LPR General Prosecutor's Office and Dmitry Vreshchaga, head of the Department for Supervision of the Execution of Legislation in the Economic Sphere of the LPR General Prosecutor's Office.

“During the dialogue, we asked them to assist in establishing contacts with the colleagues of the LPR. They promised to resolve this issue through the Prosecutor General of the LPR Sergey Gorenko. In the shortest possible time, we established cooperation with colleagues from Luhansk, with whom we are actively working to this day. But I want to note that we have developed very warm relations with the employees of the Prosecutor General's Office of the LPR. It was they who met us at the customs, headed by Anastasia Yuryevna Aleshina,” said the head of the Fund.

Madina Plieva has clarified that the humanitarian cargo that they delivered to the LPR was handed over to the Prosecutor General's Office. Employees of the supervisory agency undertook to distribute assistance among those defenders who taking part in the most difficult areas of the war at the moment.

“Our monument is now located on the territory of the Prosecutor General's Office. Sergey Sergeevich Gorenko is constantly helping the defenders of the Fatherland, in a special place for him are people who received various injuries during the hostilities. He is a Man with a capital letter. In addition, he turned to the head of the city administration so that our monument would be installed on the site of the future memorial complex, which is planned to be made on the territory of Lugansk. We visited the place allocated for the memorial complex. The territory is very large, the project is interesting, worthy of the memory of all the victims,” she said.

similarity of fate...

As part of the trip, representatives of the Fund also visited the museum, where they met with colleagues - war invalids. According to Plieva, she was watching the guys from South Ossetia and Luhansk, and in her heart, she was surprised at how similar their fate was. The delegation of the Fund for the wounded who became disabled during the hostilities in South Ossetia was seen off by several dozen Lugansk residents, and everyone considered it his duty to express gratitude for the warmth, attention and help in protecting the civilian population of Luhansk.

This is not the first humanitarian action of the Fund's representatives. Earlier, the Fund delivered a memorial monument to Donetsk, and together with the leadership of the Republic of South Ossetia took part in the grand opening.
