It took
several hours to extinguish the fire and resume the work of the power plant
that used to supply as much as 75 percent of the electricity that Luhansk
Oblast needs. Ukrainian troops, involved in fighting against the Russia-backed
separatists, increased the defensive measures at the plant, fearing that the
rebels may try to capture the strategically important electricity producer
located just in about one kilometer from the frontline. 

“It’s obvious that those who control it (the plant) can decide where to supply the electric energy,” Andriy Morozov, plant’s shift leading technician told the Kyiv Post. 

Another heavy
shelling happened on Oct. 9, but the workers managed to fix the damages without
stopping the plant. Six of them, who travelled to their shift by bus, were
wounded by pieces of shell that day.
