Horlivka sees gunfire, bridge damage, electric public transport halt
Last night was far from being quiet in Horlivka, Donetsk region. Gunfire was heard in every district and the hostilities continued in the Mayorsk and Dzerzhynsk suburbs, the City Council press service said on Tuesday.
The gunfire ceased early in the morning. District administrations said the public utility services were working.
Yet the fighting incapacitated a tracking substation and electric public transport came to a halt.
Power supply to 80 substations has been cut off and there is a power outage in the suburb of Hlyboke, the wholesale market area, 88 blocks and the lower part of the Peremoha suburb, the public utilities department said.
In turn, the city economy and investment department said a motor bridge had been damaged and a number of city bus routes had to be altered.
Tap water supply has been limited to several hours, from 0600 to 0900 and from 1800 to 2100. Specialists of the Voda Donbasa Company's Horlivka division are examining the canal damage.
