The first post office has opened in the liberated Severodonetsk, the press service of the LPR Post state unitary enterprise reported.
“On August 3, LPR Post launched its first office in Severodonetsk. The post office is located at 32 Druzhby Narodov Street,” the press service said.
Acting head of the Severodonetsk administration Nikolay Morgunov, LPR Post officials and local residents took part in the opening ceremony.
"LPR Post gave a philatelic souvenir to Nikolay Morgunov, a “Severodonetsk” stamp to remember the occasion by. It was put in circulation on the date when the company resumed operation in the town,” an LPR Post representative said.
LPR militia units began to advance towards Severodonetsk and Lisichansk in early March. Supported by Russian forces, they gained a foothold in Severodonetsk on May 29. On June 25, they took under full control the industrial zone of the Azot works in the town. On the same day, the coalition forces entered Lisichansk. Both towns were liberated by early July.
On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a special military operation to protect Donbass residents from Ukrainian aggression. Earlier, LPR and DPR Heads Leonid Pasechnik and Denis Pushilin asked the Russian leader to provide military assistance. On July 3, the LPR militia and Russian armed forces fully liberated the LPR territory from Ukrainian armed formations.
The Ukrainian government launched the so-called anti-terrorist operation against Donbass in April 2014. The Donbass peace talks participants have announced ceasefire more than 20 times since the autumn of 2014. Kiev forces regularly violated the truce opening fire with large caliber artillery, mortars and tank guns which were to have been withdrawn from the contact line under the accords. *i*s
