DONETSK, August 28. /ITAR-TASS/. Three hundred miners are trapped in a Ukrainian coalmine which was left without electricity in shelling, the press service of Donetsk regional power utility said on Thursday.
“The Zasyadko coalmine was left without power supply in military actions and due to a damaged power line on early on Thursday morning. Three hundred miners were trapped underground when power supply was disrupted,” the press service said.
Regional power utility workers try to temporarily connect the mine to another power substation so that miners will be able to go up to the surface. Power supply of the mine can be restored fully only after the power line located in Ukraine’s eastern city of Donetsk is repaired.
