Vodafone Ukraine partly restores eastern network

22 Jan 2018

Vodafone Ukraine, wholly owned by Mobile TeleSystems (MTS), said on 19 January that it restored communications on its mobile network in the eastern separatist-occupied region of Luhansk, following the fibre backbone cable break on 11 January. However, the occupied Donetsk region remained entirely without Vodafone service, Liga.net reported. A Vodafone Ukraine spokesperson stated: ‘In the Donetsk region the network does not work for reasons unknown to us. There is a possibility that the equipment is out of order or there is no electricity supply.’
