Donetsk filtration station to start supplying water to Toretsk, Donetsk region in the coming days. Pavlo Zhebrivskyi, former head of Donetsk Region Civil-Military Administration claimed this on the air of ‘Pulse” talk show on 112 Ukraine TV channel.
‘There is a big problem in Toretsk because the separatists prevent restoring the water pipe in the south Donbas, which is broken for three years now. The water is supplied via another water pipe. As far as I know, the Donetsk filtration station is currently under scheduled maintenance, and soon the water should be supplied. Toretsk is the biggest problem,’ Zhebrivskyi claimed.
At the same time, the Ministry for Temporarily Occupied Territories and Displaced Persons reported on Twitter that the local authority organized the delivery of water by 10 water carriers - 150 tons per day. International organizations also supply water. The Ministry also urges the other international organizations, such as the Red Cross and Caritas to buy or rent additional water-carriers for water supply.
Reportedly, on October 15 at 1:35 p.m., the General Directorate of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine received an information about the break of Gorlovka - Toretsk water pipe.
