Today most of the water pumps of “Popasnavoda” company in Karbonit village were fixed. The work of the station is restored. All villages of Popasna area on Ukraine controlled territory of Lugansk Region got water supply.
In total about 10 rockets of MRLS blew up on the territory of the station. One of the rockets hit the roof of the technical building, another rocket damaged lifting gear. The oil transformer was destroyed, it was providing power supply for the water pumps.
We were able to fix all the damage fast and restart the station, the situation didn’t get to critical stage. This water station is located on the demarcation line, often saboteur groups get here and set up landmines. And when we arrive here today, the military located anti-tank mine hidden in the grass just few meters from the road. The mine was neutralized, the station works and supplies water for our villages.
