      But what is it like to be on your own land and still "imprisoned" for 14 days ?! This will probably be the longest two weeks of their life!)

        After that, those who do not have housing in the DPR will be provided at the long-term residence

        In general, who are they and where did they get captured from? And how is it their own land, even if there is no housing. Captured homeless people.

    It seems that there are no active, military operations, but the prisoners are exchanged endlessly.
    What’s the thing with them? -If we’re not bombing and do not go into attacks, we’ll at least capture them in captivity.

    We know these exchanges .. Bandera will gather people from the vicinity and surrender as prisoners (but the real ones continue to fade in the dungeons) ..

    They will probably bring the virus to the DPR. Though a little, but to hurt. Everyone's eyes are open.
