Donetsk, Aug 14 – DAN. Donbass Water (Voda Donbassa) staff members have come under Kiev forces' fire today as they were leaving the Donetsk water treatment plant (DFS) premises, a defense source told DAN.

"Today at around 4 p.m. Donbass Water staff were leaving DFS heading to Yasinovataya. Small arms fire was opened on them from Ukrainian army positions," the interlocutor said.

No casualties have been reported as of now.

Donetsk water treatment plant, located between Yasinovataya and Kiev-controlled Avdeyevka has long been a trouble spot on the contact line in Donbass. It supplies water to both sides of the contact line, DPR-controlled Donetsk and Yasinovataya and Vasilyevka and Spartak villages, and Kiev-controlled Avdeyevka, Krasnogorovka and Verkhnetoretskoye village. DFS often comes under Ukrainian forces fire, though it stores chlorine. Overall, more than 370 rounds have hit the plant’s territory in the course of the conflict. *ot
