Ukrainian military opened fire at the brigade of electricians who were working on restoration of the damaged power lines near Yasinovataya, reported the DPR Operational Command.
"Today, at about 2 p.m. the AFU fired at the repair crew on their way from Yasinovataya for recovery works on DFS. There were no casualties, only working equipment sustained damage," said the defense official.
According to the Command, earlier representatives of the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination of ceasefire (JCCC) have coordinated 'silence regime' on both sides to ensure security of repair crews.
It was added that at the moment "the issue of termination of the AFU shellings during recovery works on DFS was being resolved with mediation of the OSCE."
Before the accident the Donetsk filtration plant was de-energized presumably as a result of shellings.
