LUGANSK, March 12. /TASS/. Ukraine has resumed water supplies to the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) from the Western water treatment plant located in the Kiev-controlled territory, a spokesman for the Luganskvoda company said on Sunday.
"Ukraine resumed water supplies to the republic from the Western water treatment plant in the evening on March 11," LuganskInformCenter quoted him as saying.
Water supplies to the LPR from the Western water treatment plant were stopped overnight to March 11 without any notification. Ukraine said water supplies had been stopped due to an accident at the water mains but did not provide any documents proving that.
It was not the first time when Ukraine stopped water supplies to the LPR. Thus, on December 1, 2016, Kiev halted water supplies from the Petrovsky water intake facility and more than halved water supplies from the Western water treatment plant. Ukrainian officials said back then that the move had been prompted by the LPR’s non-payment of water bills. On January 13, Luganskvoda said the republic had paid all the water bills and Ukraine resumed water supplies.
However water supplies from the Petrovsky water pumping station were stopped again without notification on March 6. The Ukrainian side provided no explanations
Water is supplied to the LPR from two pumping stations located in Kiev-controlled areas: the Western water treatment plant and the water supply intake facility in Ptrovskoye.
