    It is said that a slow but steady hemorrhage of professional people from the Donbas "Republics" continues. Doctors who in particular who have held on to maintain their duties as health care specialists are leaving for Ukraine, Russia or somewhere beyond in search of better conditions of employment.

    Lugansk has had several snow showers in recent days and it's reported that only the principal artery routes are being kept clear of snow. On ground surfaces that have not been cleared of snow depths of up to 70cm are being reported.

      I have received a telephone call from a contact in Kiev that Mikhail Saakashvili has been kidnapped whilst dining in a Kiev restaurant and was whisked away within a small vehicle convoy.
      A further report that Saakashvili is said to have been taken out of Ukraine in a non scheduled aircraft going to Poland, but that the aircraft is reported to have turned away from its planned flight plan alleging that the Polish flight control authority may have refused the aircraft landing.

        A Lugansk contact reported yesterday that once again subscribers of the MTS mobile telephone service had lost all connectivity .
        Also reported from residents on the west side of Lugansk large gun bursts in the far distance but with enough of a blast wave to make the window frames vibrate.

          Last night in Lugansk many residents were aroused from their sleep at 02:00. On the eastern and south eastern side of Lugansk the volume of noise was much greater making many residents fearful. One contact is of the opinion that it was incoming fire from the Ukraine Army. However, another contact insists that it was outgoing fire from the separatists probably firing upon the Stanytsia Luhanska and Makarova Ukraine Army front lines.
          I leave it to you to make up your own minds, but you may wish to click on URL below. It will show you the position of pro Russian separatist gun positions and photographs of the destruction caused by incoming fire. Although there is damage visible I remain unconvinced that it is recent shell or rocket fire damage.

            Letters from above

            This morning the residents of Lugansk woke up to find small pieces of paper in their gardens. It is reported that these slips of paper had writing in the Ukrainian language with the sentiment that Ukraine has not abandoned you and that we shall return one day.

              Received report of a boy (believed to to be 15 years of age) got on a minibus in Debaltseve (part of Donetsk People''s Republic) with passengers of around 20 people. He was carrying a hand grenade in a bag wich exploded during the journey. The boy died instantly and the majority of the other passengers received injuries of various degrees of severity. It is isn't believed to be associated as terror act but most likely to be a result of the lad carrying a found "trophy".

                Lugansk contact tells me that good medicine is in short supply in the so called "Republics" and that people are having to spend hours queuing at the front lines between the separatist forces and Ukraine Army positions to get into Ukraine held territory to go on pharmacy shopping trips to purchase required drugs and medical provisions.

                Also that in Lugansk exists a youth organisation not unlike the former Soviet Pioneers. Youngsters from ages 10 to 16 can undergo various fitness, military marching, survival skills and to become accustomed to the use of the AK 47 automatic rifle. The security and benefits of being in the "Republic" must be defended!

                  Health reforms, are they working

                  Received word that recently planned health reforms are proving to be having problems. It is said that previously a patient would turn up at their doctor's clinic without an appointment and form a queue to get see their doctor. Now it's said the patients must make an appointment to get an attendance number and appointment time. However for reasons unclear the doctors aren't starting at, or operating at the specified appointment times. Subsequently a patient with an appointment time of say 12:30 attempts to enter the doctor's room as it is being vacated by the previous patient at 12:30 and is confronted by all those waiting patients whose appointment time has already passed by potentially up to one hour or more and an altercation often arises.
                  Furthermore a patient can approach his/her previous doctor for an appointment to be told that due to administrative changes that patient is now no longer the doctor's patient but is now part of another medical clinics responsibility, although medical reception staff may not be sure which alternative clinic it may be!

                    I'm being told that due to major electricity transmission works in Lugansk that the electricity supply there will be cut as from midnight Friday 9th November until Sunday 11th November. The current night time temperature during this period can be as low as minus five Celsius.
                    It is also said that two persons have died in the deep snow whilst waiting within the long queue of travellers waiting to cross the "border" from the "Lugansk People's Republic" to Ukrainian controlled territory.

                      I'm told that there have been power cuts of around 1 hour duration taking place in Lugansk during the previous two days.

                      It is also reported that in recent days Donbas has experienced temperatures of minus10 degrees Celsius with deep snow. Subsequent to this it is said two people have died whilst waiting in the long queue of travellers waiting to pass through from "Lugansk People's Republic" into Ukraine controlled territory.
