Donetsk, Oct 10 - DAN. Ukraine has turned off datalink channels causing Internet connection problems in the Donetsk People’s Republic, DPR Communications Minister Viktor Yatsenko said as he replied a Donetsk News Agency’s question.

“DPR telecommunication companies have experienced certain problems in providing Internet services as Ukraine unilaterally turned town datalink channels,” Yatsenko noted.

He underlined that the Communications Ministry personnel were switching over to new data channels to ensure stable access to the Internet. The work is expected to be completed by the end of this week.

Internet users in a number of Donbass cities have had download and upload problems for several days.*jk
