Russia-backed militants have been trying to cut the residents of Luhansk region from electricity supplies; they must have targeted the local thermal power station in Schastya, which is the only source of electric power generation in this area. Yuriy Klymenko, the deputy governor of Luhansk region posted this on Facebook.

'Schastya took damage after 80 mm artillery fire. The enemy fired over 50 mines on the town, apparently trying to destroy Schastya TPP. Terrorists surely understand there are no alternative sources of power generation, and even the TPP's work', Klymenko said. 

He added that the substation in Kreminna, which would link Luhansk region and the United Energy System of Ukraine will be built next year.

'Fortunately, in spite of the dense enemy fire, there are no victims or any destruction. The cynicism of Russian mercenaries is truly astonishing; they do understand that if the TPP ceases to work, the technogenic collapse would follow. The elderly people and children will suffer first', he said.
