The equipment of the Internet provider "Prosto," which provided Internet services in the cities of Enerhodar, Dniprorudne, and the settlements of the entire Vasylivka district of Zaporizhzhia region, has been seized by local collaborators with the support of the occupying russian troops.

The provider announced this on July 11 on their Telegram channel.

"Local collaborators supported by the occupying russian troops have seized our equipment in Enerhodar. With regards to this, starting July 11, 2022, we will be unable to provide services in such cities as Enerhodar, Dniprorudne, and settlements of Kamianka-Dniprovska, Vasylivka, Velyka Bilozerka, Vesele, and Mykhailivka districts. Our dear subscribers, hold on. The only thing left is to have faith in the fastest victory."

In the morning of the same day, the company informed their clients that services could not be provided to subscribers in Enerhodar, Dniprovka, Dniprorudne, Kamianka-Dniprovska, Velyka Znamyanka, Mala and Velyka Bilozerka, Vesele, and Mykhailivka due to a network failure. At the same time, the company could not tell how long the recovery would take.

According to the IMI representative in Zaporizhzhia region, all Ukrainian mobile operators and Internet providers are currently disabled in Enerhodar. IMI sources have reported that if the city's residents do not agree to install SIM cards of russian operators, which requires providing their passport details to the occupiers, they are left without any communication channels.

As IMI reported, on June 13 in Enerhodar, officers of the so-called "people's police" took over the premises of the communication service operator Internet Service Group LLC under the threat of using weapons.
