LPR and Ukraine signed an agreement for moderate water supply, said the Republic's Emergency Ministry's head Sergey Ivanushkin speaking on Lugansk24 TV channel Tell The Truth show.
"From now on we will receive water from the adjoining side (territory under Ukraine's control – eds Lugansk Media Center) based on contractual arrangements," he said.
Ivanushkin noted that the volumes of water covered by the agreement are small.
"We need more water.. We have never had enough water, that is why at this stage we agreed to this yield to have a reserve for autumn-winter period."
"We need this water, but even if they (Ukrainian side) shut it off, our boiler houses will keep operating as we have appropriate means to overcome it."
Kiev restored water supplies to LPR on October 7th after it shut off two water pipelines delivering water to LPR territory - the first one is pumping water to Lugansk area from Kiev-controlled West water treatment plant in vicinity of Lisichansk, and Petrovskiy duct.
LPR was faced with a significant depletion of water supply. LPR Сouncil of ministers declared an emergency in several districts of the Republic on September 27th due to significant water supply deterioration.
