LUGANSK, November 14 /TASS/. Rescuers have evacuated six miners from a blast-hit Pervomaiskaya mine, Kirill Meshkovsky, Ukraine’s first deputy minister of energy and coal mining industry, told the UNIAN news agency on Thursday.
“A paramilitary mine rescue unit carried out a rescue operation. Six miners were lifted to the surface,” Meshkovsky said.
The Pervomaiskaya mine is located in the war-torn Lugansk region in eastern Ukraine and the blast, according to Meshkovsky, could have been caused by gunfire.
The mine started to be filled with water after electricity supplies had stopped.
"As on 19:00 Moscow time, we are trying to turn on pumps to start unwatering the mine,” Meshkovsky said adding that the water was arriving at a speed of about 300 cubic meters per hour.
Measures are being taken to prevent the flooding of other mines belonging to the Pervomaiskugol Company.
