Donetsk, Jan 30 – DAN. Power was cut to Donetsk water treatment plant this evening due to a reported shelling, said DPR water supply company Voda Donbassa director general Oleg Mokryi.

"Power has just went off at Donetsk water treatment plant. We suppose the ongoing shelling might be blamed for PTL damage."

The exact cause if the blackout is being established.

Repair teams are launching reserve water supply pipes to provide water to Donetsk and its neighborhoods.

Mokryi said mobile connection issues impede the establishing of the outage circumstances.
