KIEV, July 01. /ITAR-TASS/. As a result of combat operations in eastern Ukraine, the city of Slavyansk and part of the city of Kramatorsk in the Donetsk Region were blacked out, regional electricity distribution company DTEK Donetskoblenergo said Tuesday.
The company said the power outage occurred after the Slavyansk Severny 110kV substation was disconnected from the power grid.
“This led to a complete blackout of the city of Slavyansk, as well as to disruptions of power supplies to a number of facilities in the city of Kramatorsk: the central city hospital, a maternity clinic and a surgery department,” DTEK Donetskoblenergo said.
Restoration of damaged electric equipment is impossible due to active warfare, the company said.
Hundreds of people have been killed, buildings destroyed and tens of thousands forced to flee Ukraine to Russia as a result of Kiev’s military operation against federalization supporters in Ukraine’s embattled Southeast involving armored vehicles, heavy artillery and attack aviation, which has been conducted since mid-April.
Fierce military attacks of the pro-Kiev forces on the country’s southeastern regions resumed after Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko decided to end the ceasefire in the Southeast on Monday.
Poroshenko announced the ceasefire on June 20 and extended it on June 27 by three days. However, there were numerous reports that the truce had been violated by Kiev.
