MOSCOW, August 18. /TASS/. German experts are planning to visit two damaged water supply facilities in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), which pump water to both sides of the line of contact, a well-informed source told Donetsk News Agency on Tuesday.
"The German experts are due to arrive at the end of August. They are planning to visit the Donetsk filtration plant and Seversky Donets-Donbas Canal in Gorlovka regularly shelled by the Ukrainian army," the source said.
The agreement on the visit of foreign experts was reached on August 3 in Minsk during the latest meeting of the economic subgroup of the Contact Group on Ukraine.
Seversky Donets-Donbas Canal is the only source of drinking water for residents of the Donetsk republic. The canal was severely damaged by the Ukrainian Army’s artillery bombardments last August.
