The restoring of the gas supply for the residents of Avdiivka and seven villages of Yasunuvata District is scheduled for August 20. Oleksandr Kuts, Chairman of the Donetsk Regional Military-Civil Administration claimed this on Facebook.
'On Monday, work will begin on the gas supply to the residents of Avdiivka and seven villages of Yasunuvata District: Tonenke, Netailove, Krasnohorlivka, Lastochkyne, Orlivka, Vodiane and Pervomaiske,' Kuts claimed.
According to him, the specialists of the regional gas company are working on the filling of operating distribution networks for the second day. He also added that Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko personally controls the restoring of the gas supply to the residents of Avdiivka and seven villages of Yasunuvata District.
Reportedly, the gas to Avdiivka is being supplied through the main gas pipeline Makiivka-Avdiivka. As a result of the shelling of the militants, a part of the gas pipeline was damaged in the summer of 2017. Therefore, 20 thousand residents of Avdiivka and settlements of Yasunuvata District left without the gas.
