Two mines in Donetsk region lost power due to shelling

Due to Russian shelling in the Donetsk region, two mines were cut off from power, leaving 23,000 residents of Toretsk without electricity.

This was reported by the Ministry of Energy, according to Ukrinform.

"In the Donetsk region, two 110 kV overhead power lines were damaged by shelling, which led to the de-energization of two 110 kV substations. This left 23,000 residents of Toretsk without electricity. In particular, two mines, one of which had workers underground, lost power," the statement said.

It is noted that the mines and some household consumers have already been supplied with power, and repair work on the lines is ongoing.
