Donetsk, Oct 31 — DAN. Ukrainian artillery attacks have damaged outdoor heating lines in the Oktyabrsky neighborhood in Donetsk’s Kuibyshevsky district, city mayor Alexey Kulemzin said on Tuesday.

Four boiler houses have suspended operation: five schools, six kindergartens and 163 houses in Kuibyshev, Astafyev, Vakhurshev and Kovalko Streets are without heat supply, Kulemzin said. 

Repairs are expected to last until November 8 in in some places, but heat supply to some of the houses will be restored shortly, he said.

In the city’s Kirovsky district, workers are repairing a 700mm pipe to stabilize water supply to the boiler houses in the Shiroky and Pobeda neighborhoods.
