A decree to this effect, dated August 13, was posted on the presidential website on Friday. According to the document, the Artemivska, Volodarska, Kostantynivska, Telmanivska and Yasynuvata district military-civilian administrations have been created for administration in the sphere of ensuring public order and security in the Donetsk region. The appropriate district state administrations and the heads of these administrations now gain the status of district military-civilian administrations and their heads. In the Luhansk region, the district military-civilian administration of the town of Rubizhne and the district military-civilian administrations of the cities of Lysychansk, Novodruzhesk and Pryvillia have been created. Vitaliy Kovalchuk, first deputy head of the Ukrainian presidential administration, said the district military-civilian administrations in the Donetsk region have been created on the division line. The decree was prepared with regard for the requests made by Pavlo Zhebrivsky (the head of the Donetsk district military-civilian administration) and Heorhiy Tuka (the head of the Luhansk district military-civilian administration). "The district military-civilian administrations in some districts of Donetsk and towns of the Luhansk region have been formed on the division line, bearing in mind the exacerbation in the area of the anti-terrorist operation due to the military aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine and the need to avoid terrorist threats and to ensure the safety of citizens of Ukraine," he said.
