MOSCOW, February 20. /TASS/. Only 10% of the industry in the self-proclaimed Donetsk people’s republic operates now while the rest of the facilities have been affected by hostilities, a DPR administration official said on Friday.
"Up to 90% of industry does not operate as the result of armed actions or a blockade by Ukraine," Evgeny Lavrenov, who is in charge of industrial development strategy, told the Donetsk news agency.
"Our leading industry facilities in the recent shellings have sustained such losses that we will need a month to restore them," he said, also mentioning the metallurgic plant in Yenakiyevo where a distribution substation has been destroyed.
"There are many such enterprises here," Lavrenov said. "While Ukraine’s Armed Forces shell our infrastructure, we will keep the plants in such a condition so that all this does not turn into a heap of scrap," he added.
