The occupied areas of Donbas can turn off the water

The Minister of energy and coal industry of Ukraine Igor Nasalik allows for stopping the water supply not controlled by the Ukrainian authorities of the occupied territories of Donbass. He said this after a government meeting.

According to the Minister, due to the fact that these territories have a debt to pay to the Ukrainian water utilities, as well as lack of ability to supply anthracite coal to the station, ensuring supply regions.

“There is the issue of water now, a water utility with no payment. And one of the questions that will be in Minsk today, is, including we with one hand on Lugansk can’t put the anthracite coal, we have no supply routes, in addition to uncontrolled areas or from Russia. And then we have to disable water”, – said the Minister.

We will remind, earlier Ukraine stopped the supply of electricity to the occupied territory in Luhansk region. The decision was accepted in connection with absence of payment for the delivered and consumed electricity.
