Read in Russian

LUGANSK, May 29 (Lugansk Media Centre) – Ukrainian media reports on the president Zelensky's visit to frontline Stanitsa Luganskaya confirm that military personnel occupy civilian residential houses, said LPR People's Militia press service officer Ivan Filiponenko.

"We have repeatedly reported that Ukrainian military occupy residential houses and build positions in residential quarters. Zelensky's visit has proved it."

Video reports covering the visit showed Ukrainian president inspect military lodging in a country house.

"The president was remarkably unsurprised seeing military personnel plunder a residential house," Filiponenko said.

He noted that the security situation at the conflict line remains unchanged despite the new president and Ukrainian government reshuffle.
