Residents of Mayorsk (controlled by the government territory) have not got their social benefits and pensions for more than two years as being a part of Horlivka city Council (temporary non-controlled territory). The issue of administrative reassignment of Mayorsk to Bahmut city council is to be solved by Verkhovna Rada deputies. However, the deputies are on their holidays right now till September.
People living in Mayorsk so far survive due to humanitarian assistance.
How can you live without a pension? We would be hungry if humanitarian actors did not come to us. Shoot all the time, – local people said.
For now the residents of Mayorsk are questioning how to get ready to winter time as there’s no gas supply and always problems with electricity.
