The stores sell Ukrainian products, but no one buys them. People just have no money. Russian products are cheaper, local residents say. At the same time, hackers have found Zakharchenko's millions in the so-called "Central Bank", and the former "ATB" supermarket chain was re-registered for his wife and was renamed the "Respublikanskiy" (Republican). In addition, the leader's family opened several stores called "Semerochka" (Seven).

Since the beginning of the curfew, which the "DPR" has not canceled, sounds of artillery can be heard in the city. The militants continue to shell the Ukrainian positions from the residential quarters of Donetsk in violation of all agreements.
