Up to 382,000 people in Donetsk Oblast have lost supplies of running water amid an upsurge of fighting in the region, local authorities and emergency services report.

After the shelling of a pumping station inside the war zone, the South Donbas water pipeline has been dry for five days, cutting main water supplies to government-controlled cities west and south of occupied Donetsk, including Dobropillya, Pokrovsk, Mariinka, Vuhledar, Krasnohorivka, Volnovakha, and Mariupol.

“As of now, 14 cities and 58 towns are without running water – that’s 382,000 people,” Donetsk Oblast governor Pavlo Zhebrivsky wrote on his Facebook page on June 12.
