LUGANSK, September 26. /TASS/. A state of emergencies has been imposed in a number of districts of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) after Kiev stopped water supplies, LugansInformCenter said on Monday.
"The LPR Council of Ministers has issued an instruction to impose a state of emergency in certain districts of the republic over insufficient water supplies to cities and villages under sanitary norms," the agency said.
According to LuganskInformCenter, water supplies to the LPR were cut from the Petrovsky water intake facility and Western filtering station controlled by Kiev.
On September 22, LPR’s leader Igor Plotnitsky said he had instructed the republic’s negotiators at the talks in Minsk to raise the subject of water supplies from the Ukrainian side.
