The goal for 2025 is to activate and involve at least 1% of the citizens in decision-making and promoting reforms in Ukraine on a systematic basis for the well-being of the Ukrainian communities. Today we work in the 30 communities of Ukraine.

In Mariupol, another jump in mortality has been recorded. Hospital sources report that the number of deaths per week has increased by 1.5 times. 232 deaths were recorded against the average level of 150. The reason is the lack of antibiotics against the background of increasing disease rates due to the effects of the cold.
Hospitals in the occupied part of Luhansk Oblast are again full of wounded russians.
The occupiers continue the forced relocation of pro-Ukrainian residents. On the pretext of counter-subversive actions, about 20 local farmers were taken out of the settlements of Denezhnikovo and Shtormove (Novoaidar community) last week.
In the Starobilsk community, the occupiers continue to search apartments, aiming for two goals. First, they look for vacant houses to move into or rob. Secondly, the increase in the number of checkpoints did not help in the search for deserters, because their number is increasing every day.
In the Vilniansk multidisciplinary hospital, rubble continues to be dismantled after the rocket attack. 7 units of special equipment are in operation. Now all the departments are functioning there, except for the maternity department.
The law enforcement officers arrested collector’s cars and Scythian gold belonging to Vyacheslav Boguslaev and Oleg Dzyuba, officials of PJSC “Motor Sich”, who are suspected of collaborationism, aiding and abetting the russian federation.

The turbo mechanical plant with the Sumy enterprise worked for the russian defense industry, etc. The concern took the second place in the supply of products to russian companies, exporting 95% of the production of Ukraine. After a full-scale invasion, the owners continued to cooperate with the aggressor, arranging supplies through controlled foreign and russian straw companies. And during the searches, they seized the correspondence of the persons involved in the “messengers”, justifying russian aggression as “poor russians, they were forced”, “Ukraine will be taken by the russian federation by the end of 2023”, etc.
Due to the destruction of critical infrastructure objects by rushists, we have an emergency power outage in the community. Energy technicians work in an intensified mode. Today, according to the energy experts, emergency and hourly shutdown schedules were in effect at the same time. Schedules apply to all types of consumers, including industry.
