On Monday, Luhansk energy union is to cut off the grid Petrivska water pump station; it is a part of Popasna water utility, which supplies drinking water to the militant-held Luhansk and the occupied part of Luhansk region.  

The reason for such decision is the water utility’s debt, which, as of November 6, already made roughly 5.6 million dollars, and keeps growing. The total debt was amassed due to the debts of the self-styled Luhansk People’s Republic, which piled up constantly: most of the water, produced by the company, was supplied to the non-controlled areas of the region.

In October alone, the water utility paid USD 200,000 of 300,000 for the consumed energy. Over ten months in 2017, the debts made roughly 2 billion dollars, and the company managed to pay approximately 60 percent of the sum.

In 2016, Ukraine paid $107 thousand for water supply to occupied Luhansk.
