KIEV, July 27, 0:46 /ITAR-TASS/. Nine mines of the Donetsk fuel and energy company (DTEK) have suspended operation in the Lugansk region in Eastern Ukraine for fear of power cuts. The company’s press service reported on Saturday that 3,000 miners had been evacuated.
"We had to stop the production and raise the people to the surface because two high-voltage power lines owned by Ukrenergo Company were damaged during military hostilities today. The Lugansk thermal power station was the only source of energy for the Lugansk region from 12:30 to 17:32,” the DTEK said.
The evacuation passed normally. The mines will work in a life-support regime (ventilation and unwatering) until the risks of being left without electricity are removed.
