"In particular, airplanes and motorcades carrying food are heading to Slovyansk. Bread, water, sugar, canned meats should be delivered to the city as early as today. Besides, I have ordered work to begin to repair power and water supplies to ensure normal life in the city," Poroshenko said in his Saturday address to the Ukrainian people.
Pensions, student scholarships and other government payouts should be delivered to Slovyansk and other towns immediately, he said. "Start rebuilding infrastructure. Clean up the schools. On September 1 children must go to renovated classrooms," the president said.
