In Donetsk on Monday, November 24, a protest took place against the lack of food and social security benefits by the so-called “female opposition battalion” demanding that the terrorists leave town within two months. Similar protests demanding that the Russians leave have also taken place in other cities in the Donbas, Andriy Lysenko, spokesman for the National Security Council, reported at a press briefing, November 25.
“In the temporarily occupied territories of the Donbas, resistance by the local residents is growing and becoming better organized. In particular, in Donetsk another demonstration has taken place that was organized by the so-called united women’s opposition battalion,” Lysenko said.
“Local women are outraged by the present situation where there is a lack of food and the absence of any social security from the terrorist authorities as well as the distribution of counterfeit money by the DNR authorities that no store will accept,” he added.
“The protest movement activists have given an ultimatum to the so-called prime minister of DNR demanding that (his people) get out of town within two months,” he said.
Lysenko noted that over the past several days similar protests by local residents have also taken place in Amvrosiyivka, Sverdlovsk, Chervonopartyzansk and Rovenky in the Luhansk Oblast.
“In addition, in the occupied towns of Fashchivka, Chornukhino and Krasnyi Luch, where Russian troops have positioned Grad multiple rocket launchers in the midst of residential neighborhoods in order to fire at ATO forces, local residents have come out with makeshift weapons demanding that the Russians leave their cities and remove all their weapons,” he reported.
