DONETSK, July 02. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s army uses armored vehicles and heavy artillery for suppressing protests in the south-east.
The city of Kramatorsk, the north of Ukraine’s eastern Donetsk region, has come under artillery fire. About 100 houses have been burnt down, militia’s representative told ITAR-TASS on Wednesday.
Most damage has been caused to private housing. The city’s three districts, including an airfield, have been attacked. Kramatorsk’s residents leave the city by cars, by taxi or by buses, the official said.
The Seversky Donets-Donbass canal has been put out of order due to artillery strikes. The water supply system does not function, Donetsk Mayor Alexander Lukyanchenko told a news conference.
Wireman Konstantin Silchenko, born in 1968, has been killed. Inspector of hydraulic facilities Svetlana Kudenko has been heavily wounded, he said.
The Seversky Donets-Donbass canal is the key facility for water supplies in Donetsk. It was built at the end of 1950s. After the reconstruction in 1979, the canal’s capacity was up to 43 cubic meters of water per second.
There is no electricity supply in Luhansk due to military actions. A hydraulic station has been put out of order. Electricity supply has been cut off in several settlements in the Stanichno-Luhansk district.
