There are problems for civilians to flee from Donetsk. Meanwhile, in Luhansk the terrorists banned the residents to leave the city, NDSC spokesman Andry Lysenko said July 29.
Luhansk terrorists sealed off the city. If earlier civilians could leave by rail, now the militants control the railway station, he said.
Terrorists intend to use civilians as a human shield, expecting Ukraine army onslaught on Luhansk.
Luhansk governor Iryna Veryhina confirmed there is no humanitarian corridor to evacuate civilians.
The plight of 375 hostages held by terrorists is unknown, Lysenko added.
