The explosion has destroyed an electric power sub-station, disrupted power supply at the coalmine and triggered flooding of the coalmine, the press service said.
Necessary measures are being taken to evacuate miners, the ministry’s press service said.
Damages caused to infrastructure of war-ravaged cities of Donetsk and Luhansk in the gunfire and bombings are estimated at $440 million, the UN Office for the Coordination ofHumanitarian Affairs said earlier in a report, noting that at least 1,969 facilities, including 659 public buildings, 1,230 private residential houses and 178 offices were damaged in the conflict.
More than 70% of enterprises were shut down in Donetsk and restoration of their operation will be quite difficult, particularly several coalmines were flooded and now need repair, the report said.
