Donetsk, Mar 14 – DAN. DPR and Ukraine plan to exchange written suggestions on Vodafone services restoration in the Republic, said DPR envoy to the negotiations Denis Pushilin’s press secretary Viktoria Talakina commenting on the results of today's Contact Group meeting in Minsk.

"An agreement has been reached to exchange suggestions on the (Vodafone) services restoration."

Propositions will include plans on equipment modernization or repair, and restoration of emergency telephone numbers, blocked by the Vodafone long before its shutdown in the DPR.

n January 11, the DPR was cut off from the last Ukrainian mobile carrier MTS-Ukraine (Vodafone) services after an emergency disconnection of communication channel outside Elenovka, leaving the Phoenix operator the only provider of mobile call service. Sales of DPR Phoenix mobile operator starter kits grew immediately. The Ministry of Communications addressed the company asking it to assist the repair works, but no reply followed. Currently Phoenix is the only mobile operator for the DPR. *ot
