The capital is getting assistance in the form of aid which will help it through this difficult time.
Two of the most important cities in Russia and Ukraine, Moscow and Luhansk, have declared themselves sister cities. The corresponding declaration was signed by the mayors of those two cities on June 3.
Russian President Vladimir Putin signaled his intention to send humanitarian aid to two embattled Ukrainian cities on April 27, promising to restore social and infrastructure in Lugansk and Donetsk. Now, Moscow is ready to sign a cooperation agreement with the government of the Lugansk People’s Republic. In December 2017, this agreement would make Moscow a sister city of Lugansk.
The mayor of Moscow said during his visit to Lugansk that together with the city government they had outlined joint plans for the restoration of Lugansk. They’re talking about restoring schools, clinics, housing, and other key infrastructure resources.
“The Luhansk government is going to be a very important work,” said Sergei Sobyanin. “I’m certain that everything will go well,” he added.
