Donetsk, Mar 7 – DAN. Ukraine foiled repairs on transmission lines feeding power to Donetsk water treatment plant (DFS) in Yasitnovataya area, DPR Operations Command told Donetsk News Agency on Tuesday.

“Ukrainian side sabotaged works in DFS area,” the source said. “Russian officers at the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination have not received security guarantees from Ukrainian forces.”

DFS launch will be postponed, he added.

Repairs on the transmission lines damaged by Ukrainian army shelling were scheduled for 7 March.
