Donetsk, Nov 16 – DAN. A number of DPR southern townships are still without power and gas after Kiev forces shelled the area, acting Novoazovskiy district administration head Anatoly Yanovskiy told DAN.

"Sakhanka, Sergeevka, Zaichenko, Kominternovo and Leninskoye are without power, gas supply is also disrupted. In Novoazovskiy district power is on due to reserve lines."

Yanovskiy added that repair crews have started restoring power supply in the morning.

The previous evening Ukrainian armed forces shelled DPR Novoazovsky district with artillery and mortars, causing massive power outages. For a short period of time power supply was restored to Sakhanka and Leninskoye via reserve lines, though in the night electricity was knocked out again.
