It is impossible to get a job even of a service premises scavenger in the occupied Donbas without a Russian passport.

"It turns out that in the "people's" "republics" of Donbas, Russian "citizens" are "whiter" than local "Negroes". Passports of the "republics" are unpopular even when applying for a job in the "republican" "state" institutions. This perfectly shows who is actually in charge in Donetsk and Luhansk", - he commented on the requirements for applicants for the most non-prestigious vacancies.

Occupation authorities of CADLO banned the import of raw tobacco from Russia into the uncontrolled territory. This was reported by the separatist media. "To temporarily ban the import of raw tobacco and tobacco offals into the single customs territory from the Russian Federation, as well as from third countries", - the document signed by leaders of the "DNR/LNR" Denis Pushilin and Leonid Pasechnik said.

The number of cases of early release of convicts has significantly increased in the "penitentiary facilities of the DNR" in the Russian-occupied part of the territory of the Donetsk oblast since the beginning of 2022. This was reported by the "Freethinker" Telegram channel with reference to the employees of the so-called closed institutions of the "DNR". "It turns out that everything is very simple if the recommendations are given by the Russian military "curator". Due to the fact that there is a significant shortage in the ranks of the militants of the 1st Army Corps and there was a significant outflow of personnel at the end of 2021 and at the beginning of 2022, the Russian curators suggested a way out to the occupation authorities. One of the conditions for early release from places of punishment is the obligatory passage of reservist training with the subsequent signing of a contract for service in the 1 AC! ", - the message said. At the same time, as noted by the locals, preference is given to those convicts who have already fought and committed crimes.
