SLOVIANSK, June 05. /ITAR-TASS/. Besieged Sloviansk in the eastern Ukrainian Donetsk region remains without water after power supply was disrupted in Ukraine’s punitive operation, a source from the local people’s militia told ITAR-TASS on Thursday.
“There is only water that people stocked up on and bottled water from supermarkets. Some people had wells,” the source said.
On June 4, Ukraine’s energy holding company DTEK reported that an electric power substation supplying electricity to Voda Donbassa Company (which serves the Donetsk region with water) was left without electricity as a result of the punitive operation. The towns of Kramatorsk, Druzhkivka, Konstantynivka and Sloviansk, as well as six other settlements of the Donetsk region were left without water supply. Later reports said that water supply to the city of Dzherzhynsk was also disrupted. The press service of the Ukrainian emergency situations service said on Thursday that water trucking had been organized to Druzhkivka, Dzherzhynsk, Konstantynivka and Kramatorsk.
The press service also reports that the damaged power transmission line was restored on Thursday and water supply will be resumed “after armed hostilities end in the area where the water pipe was damaged”.
