VIENNA, September 05, /ITAR-TASS/. The city of Donetsk in eastern Ukraine that has been severely damaged by Ukrainian forces may face serious problems with water and heat supplies in the forthcoming winter, observers from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) to Ukraine said in their daily report for September 4.

SMM observers referred to the mission’s chief monitor with the mayor of Donetsk, Alexander Lukyanchenko, in Kyiv, who said that the city had been heavily damaged. “He said that enormous funds would be needed to restore the destroyed infrastructure. According to the mayor, the city is facing serious problems with water supply and electricity,” the report said.

“The mayor was concerned about the forthcoming winter and the fact that authorities would not be able to provide central heating.” Lukyanchenko suggested the OSCE form a commission of Ukrainian, Russian and European parliamentarians that would visit Donbas and assess the damage.
