After the recent shelling, Avdiivka remained without electricity and water supply. On March 29, the Makiivka-2 power transmission line was damaged. Restoration work on power lines continues until today.
As a result of military actions, the Donetsk filtering station was also de-energized. The supply of water to Avdiivka was stopped,as well as partially in Donetsk, Yasinuvata and adjoining settlements.
