Donetsk, Luhansk breakaway regions switch to Russian fixed network code

29 Jul 2022

From 1 August 2022 the fixed voice telephony networks of the self-proclaimed People’s Republics of Donetsk and Luhansk in Russian-occupied eastern Ukraine will switch to the Russian ‘+7’ numbering prefix, scrapping the Ukrainian ‘+380’ code. Previously, in May it was reported that mobile operators in the separatist areas – administered by pro-Russian forces since 2014 – were switching to the Russian numbering plan.
