DPR Prosecutor General's Office launches hot line for Kiev-held territory's residents

The General Prosecutor's Office of the Donetsk People's Republic has launched the project "Hot Line of Law Enforcement Authorities of the DPR", within which residents of the Kiev-controlled territory would be able to report crimes by the Ukrainian forces and occupation authorities, official website of the supervisory authority of the Republic reports.

"The DPR General Prosecutor's Office, in the framework of providing legal assistance to the population living in the Donbass areas under the control of Ukraine, as well as with a view to assist in the implementation of legitimate rights and protect the interests of the Donbass inhabitants, announces the launch of a permanent project 'Hot Line of Law Enforcement Agencies of the Donetsk People's Republic'," the statement reads.

According to the report, the main task of the project is to establish the facts of illegal actions by Ukrainian authorities and their officials against civilians, as well as investigation of crimes with subsequent involvement of those responsible.

In this connection, the Acting Prosecutor General of the Republic Andrey Spivak called on residents of the Donbass controlled by the Ukrainian authorities to report on illegal actions on the adjacent side in a timely manner. Line operators are available around the clock and ready to receive calls.

"Not a single appeal will remain unconsidered by the DPR law enforcers, no one guilty will not escape the lawful punishment, no crime will be left without a dignified and just retribution," the Prosecutor said.

Before, residents of Donbass could apply for legal assistance only to the Office of the Ombudsman for Human Rights in the Donetsk People's Republic, as well as to the specialists of the Ministry of Justice.
