Here and now the situation is extremely serious - people actually die of starvation. Children, of course, tried to take out, but there remains a lot of older people, as well as middle-aged people, who did not want to leave their homes, "- said Fr.
According to him, in a combat zone is destroyed almost all the infrastructure, humanitarian aid comes to very rare, and many retirees who stay there can not physically move.
"Without a binding declaration to the people of the need to complete blockade of uncontrolled areas Kiev Donbass, of course, looks beautiful politically - but a different kind of takes this statement, if we remember that there are people, many of whom can not move or just want to stay on his native land where they were born and have lived all my life ", - said Diganov.
