DONETSK, August 25. /TASS/. Ukraine’s army mortared the surroundings of the Donetsk water purification station, a source in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic’s law enforcement agencies told the Donetsk News Agency Thursday.
"At about 15:30, the Ukrainian side started shelling the Donetsk water purification station’s area. Fire is presumably being delivered from mortars, shells are falling in the immediate vicinity to the station," the source said.
The station has since spring been considered one of the hottest spots on the disengagement line in Donbass. The station’s employees are forced to regularly go down to bomb shelters. The station last came under Ukrainian army fire in the evening of August 3; it was blacked out.
The Donetsk water purification station supplies with water inhabited localities on both sides of the disengagement line in Donbass. These are the cities of Donetsk and Yasinovataya, the settlements of Vasilyevka and Spartak under DPR control, as well as Avdeyevka, Krasnogorovka and the settlement of Verkhnetoretskhoye controlled by Ukraine’s Armed Forces.
