Crimean campaigner Bogutska: The Crimea is a big prison now
Lisa Bogutska, a Crimean campaigner, believes that the Crimea turned into a big prison after being annexed by Russia, but still hopes to return there together with Ukraine", she revealed in an interview with "Radio Liberty".
The campaigner herself was forced to move to Odessa after Russian Security officials carried out a search in her apartment, and were interrogating her for a few hours.
All her property, children and husband are still in the Crimea, but she plans to go back there together with Ukraine.
"It's the second day I have been out of prison, for the Crimea now is in fact very much like a prison; the thing is that only few people are aware of that. Many people think that they have been granted freedom through Russia's annexation, but they do not suspect that they will pay for this "freedom" at some point, Bogutska said.
NATIONAL SECURITY AND DEFENSE COUNSIL has expanded territories controlled by the militants
NATIONAL SECURITY AND DEFENSE Council has marked on the map sections controlled by Russian gunmen, in order to define territories, which can be reached by rebels' shells, a spokesman for the National Security Council Andriy Lysenko commented on the map released by the National Security Council.
"This does not necessary mean that they are deployed all along this line. This is just a boundary designating sectors they are unable to go through, for our troops are stationed there and prevent them from moving any further", Lysenko emphasized.
Despite of a ceasefire agreement, the situation in the ATO area remains tense.
Illegal armed formations fired upon roadblocks and positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the past 24 hours about 20 times in Donetsk region near the settlements of Kirovske, Avdiivka, Mayorske, Starolaspa, Maloorlivka, Komyshuvakha, Popasna, Krasnogorivka, Petrivske, and Karpivka.

“PRD” rebels want to take control of pensions
The leadership of the self-proclaimed "People's Republic of Donetsk" is going to establish control over institutions responsible for paying pensions.
"Now, all the services, which are in charge of pensions, are subordinated to Kyiv. And they reply that there's been no order from Kiev yet, when asked, why they have stopped paying off pensions. "We have invited them to a meeting to settle this issue today", "PRD" officials said.
There is one thing that remains unclear as to where they are going to get money from to pay off pensions and social benefits considering the fact that all bank branches are closed these days in the cities and towns controlled by rebels.
