“The situation is close to apocalyptic… The central part (of the city – ed), high-rise buildings, if we used to tell correspondents that 80% were destroyed, today I would say that they were 90% destroyed… Residential sector, private, one-story… – in a slightly better condition, but research work on the real situation still needs to be done there. People don’t live in the central part of the city today…”– said Matsokin.

According to him, there is no electricity in the city, the gas pipeline, gas pumping stations have been destroyed, and the heat supply system is not working.

“There is 100% no electricity in the city today. The water supply does not work, the sewage system does not work. Gas only reaches one area of ​​the city, and it covers 20% of the population. The gas is supplied in such a way that it takes about 20 minutes to boil the kettle.”– said the mayor.
