18:36, 13 March 2017

Repair teams are still waiting for the ceasefire to take effect in Avdiivka in order to repair power supply network. Olena Mokrenchuk, the press-secretary of the 72nd separate mechanized brigade of the Armed Sources of Ukraine, reported that.

At the moment, Avdiivka is still without power supply. On Saturday militants damaged a power line in Avdiivka, cutting off the Donetsk filtration station from electricity.

According to the rescue workers, the water supply is temporarily suspended.

Key points are powered by the alternative power supply systems. The heat for the city of Avdiivka is supplied from the coke plant.
