One of the more surreal aspects of the Ukrainian conflict, is Russia’s so called Donetsk and Luhansk People’s republics (DPR & LPR) paying their utility bills. Even more weird  when you realize it’s actually Russian tax payers footing the bill.

With Ukrainian companies supplying water and other vital services into Russian occupied Ukraine, sadly for Ukrainians living there, if the bills are not paid, then there’s a chance they will get cut off from these vital services. Feb 9th, the OSCE witnessed the handing over of money, from LPR to Ukraine.
