Terrorists of so-called Lugansk People’s Republic shelled Shchastya city using mortars, grenade launchers and automatic weapon. As a result power block #13 at the Power Plant was stopped at 20:50 and the North of Lugansk Region were left without electricity. Few hours later at about midnight power supply was restored.
The territory of bus station and department of Emergency Service of Ukraine in Shchastya were shelled. 2 soldiers of 92nd Detached Mechanized Brigade were wounded. The building of former food base located near Shchastya Power Plant got on fire.
The situation in Stanytsia Luhanska was quiet for the last 2 days, just few gun shots were registered coming from the direction where terrorists are located. People are restoring the infrastructure in the town.
After another attack on Lugansk Power Plant in Shchastya the questions of power security of Lugansk Region was raised again. We discussed this subject many times. Lugansk Regions needs another power line that will help to protect ourselves and we will be able to give extra power to other regions.
