Over a hundred people suffer consequences of the poisoning with Manganese in the occupied Makiivka, Donetsk region. The number of the infected patients grew since Thursday evening; initially, it was 39, and as of late September 27, it reached 87. Pavlo Lysiansky, the representative of Ukrainian ombudsman in Donetsk and Luhansk regions reported this on Facebook.
Earlier, the official specified that the reason for the mass poisoning could be the disinfection of the drinking water with Manganese that the local administration used instead of chlorine.
'They ran out of chlorine, so the water was partially disinfected with Manganese... This is the reason for this horrible event', Lysiansky claimed.
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.
