He said the ceasefire agreement, reached in Minsk on September 5 by the parties to the conflict in Eastern Ukraine, allows the DPR authorities to begin active work to “alleviate the humanitarian catastrophe” in the region, he told Rossiya 1 television, ITAR-TASS reported.

Work is underway to repair power transmission lines, substations, gas pipelines, railroads, and water supply lines, bring in relief supplies and restore order, Purgin said.
