DONETSK, 9 March. /TASS/. The night from March 8 to March 9 was rather quiet in Donetsk, the city’s press service reported on Monday.
Residents say they could hear periodically artillery fire.
"Presently, 17 transformer substations do not receive electricity, 3,479 flats are cut off gas, and 33 boilers cannot supply heating," the municipal authorities said.
Three transformer substations were repaired on Sunday.
"The fighting and indiscriminate shelling have caused heavy damage to civilian property and vital infrastructure, leaving civilians in highly precarious situations and often without electricity, gas, heating, water or food. Hospitals, schools and kindergartens were hit by shelling of residential areas, including in Avdiivka, Donetsk city, Horlivka, Luhansk, Mariupol and other settlements, raising suspicion that civilian objects have been targeted or at the minimum indiscriminate shelling of such areas had been conducted in the knowledge of and with stark disregard for international humanitarian law and civilian lives," reads the ninth report of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) on the situation of human rights in Ukraine based on the work of the Human Rights Mission in Ukraine.
