Donetsk, Apr 10 – DAN. Ukrainian forces positioned their units 170m away from Donetsk water treatment plant, said DPR Operations Command deputy commander Eduard Basurin.

"DFS is located in the grey zone (previously there were no units of any of the sides). We had an opportunity to take it under security control, but we realized the enemy would do everything to destroy the plant. Currently the enemy is positioned 170m away from DFS."

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. *ot
