In the near future a filter station near the town of Yasinovataya can completely go out of operation, the First Deputy Chairman of the OSCE SMM in Ukraine Alexander Hug told a briefing.

 400 thousand people can be left without clean drinking water, he said.

The drinking water station is controlled by pro-Russian militants who have sided with the illegal armed formations and therefore the access to the station is severely limited.
