VIDEOFACT. Siverskyi Donets canal’s water main seriously damaged in gray zone of Donbass

As a result of hostilities, all three penstock branches of the Siverskyi Donets canal with diameters of 2100 mm and 2300 mm were damaged in the area of Shumy draw in the gray zone. Currently, there is a colossal leakage of drinking water – 65 000 m³ per hour. Water supply is reduced in a significant part of the Donetsk oblast, including the occupied territories. The Donetsk oblast, July 22, 2020
