The number of those who suffered water poisoning in Makiivka (Donetsk region) reached 87. Pavlo Lysiansky, the representative of Ukrainian ombudsman in Luhansk and Donetsk regions posted that on Facebook.
After the mass poisoning incident in the militant-held town of Makiivka, dozens of people turned for medical aid. As of Thursday evening, the number of those who suffered grew from 43 to 87. Four patients are children; all 87 are in moderately grave condition, Lysiansky wrote.
'That's all we managed to find out. The information is heavily blocked by the representatives of occupant administration. They told us that the patients are in a moderately grave condition', reads the post.
Lysiansky assumed that the actual number of the pollution victims might be even higher. 'But it's practically impossible to find the information. The occupant authorities have been deliberately lowering the number of those who turned for help and those taken to hospitals', Lysiansky concluded.
As 112 International reported, the mass poisoning of the civilians by the drinking water took place on September 25.
