Critical shortage of drinkable water in war-affected areas of Donetsk region

19:00, 14 June 2017

The water in storage tanks in five districts of the war-torn Donbas is running low; people could stay without regular supplies of drinking water. The endangered areas are Mariinka, Pokrovsk, Volnovakha, Dobropillya district and Oleksandrivka village. The local water pipe line that supplies water to the mentioned areas is damaged due to mortar attacks; it is now under maintenance. However, that will take another 2 or 3 days to get it over with.
