THE UNITED NATIONS, September 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Damage which shelling and bombings caused to the infrastructure of south-eastern Ukrainian breakaway cities of Donetsk and Luhansk is estimated at $440 million, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said in a report.
For the time of the conflict at least 1,969 facilities, including 659 public buildings, 1,230 private houses and 178 offices were damaged. Damage is estimated at $440 million, the document runs.
More than 70% of enterprises were shut down in the city of Donetsk and restoration of their operation was aggravated with serious difficulties, the UN agency said. For instance, several coalmines were flooded and need repair now, the agency of the global organisation said in the report.
Salary and social allowances are not paid in conflict-affected districts, banks do not work fully, the report reads. Donetsk is short of water, several city districts are still cut from water supply system. Electric power supply was restored in several Luhansk districts, water pumping stations and sewage system are being repaired.
