Gunfire, explosions heard in Donetsk

The situation in Donetsk remained tense at noon on Monday, with barrages of gunfire and explosions heard periodically in Kirovsky and Leninsky districts, the mayor's spokesperson said.

Two electric substations on the grounds of the Tochmash plant remain without power, the spokesperson said. For this reason, residents in the Pryvokzalny neighborhood of the Kuibyshevsky district, and in the Kyivsky and Putylivsky districts - in all, around 5,000 people living in tower blocks and private houses - remain cut off from electricity.

"Also there is no power in the buildings of the regional pension fund, a local tax inspectorate in the Kyivsky district and the Tochmash plant. Power engineers from DTEK High-Voltage Electricity Transmission Networks will be able to start repairing the damaged power transmission line after the hostilities end," the spokesperson said.
