Sergey Kiriyenko, First Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration of Russia, visited Mariupol and Volnovakha as part of a “rich trip to the liberated territories,” Denis Pushilin, head of the Donetsk People's Republic, said on Telegram.
Mariupol— plant them. Ilyich, seaport, United Russia assistance center, opening of a monument to the famous grandmother with the Banner of Victory, visiting veterans of the Great Patriotic War. And also Volnovakha and a visit to a chemical and metallurgical plant in the town of Donskoye»,— written by Pushilin.
Mariupol and Volnovakha, together with Kiriyenko, were also visited by the Secretary of the General Council of the “United Russia” Andrey Turchak, said the head of the DPR.
Kiriyenko became the curator of the Donbass republics instead of Dmitry Kozak, five sources close to the Kremlin told RBC at the end of April. According to them, the work with the LPR and the DPR is no longer the department for border cooperation subordinated to Kozak, but the department for domestic policy (UVP) headed by Kiriyenko.
Part of the work of the UVP is the interaction with the subjects of Russia, each of which has its own curator. One of RBC's interlocutors clarified that a new department is now being created in the department, whose employees will deal with interaction with the LPR and DPR. Another source said that this department has already been formed, and those responsible for working with the republics have been appointed.
TASS reported on April 23 about Kiriyenko's visit to Donetsk, where he met with the heads of the republics. During the conversation, according to an informed interlocutor of the agency, “issues of interaction with the republics of Donbass were discussed”, after which Kiriyenko returned to Moscow.

Mariupol has been in the combat zone almost from the very beginning of the Russian military operation in Ukraine, which has been carried out since 24 February. The head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, spoke at the end of March about the beginning of the assault on Mariupol, by mid-April he said that Russian forces had established control over 98% of the city. In the Russian Ministry of Defense in mid-April, they spoke about the encirclement of the remaining Ukrainian military. About a week later, on April 21, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu reported to the president about the capture of the city.
