According to him, water losses in the water supply networks of the DPR reach 60%, this will not allow to fully ensure the water supply of the republic.

“Water from the Don could have been enough to cover more of our needs, and the schedule (of water supply) could have been made even wider if it weren’t for water losses.

It just so happened that our water supply networks now give water losses of up to 60%, ”RIA Novosti quotes him.

He also stressed that during the time of the Ukrainian authorities, no major repairs were carried out in the water supply network of the region.

Earlier, Pushilin said that the region would again be fully provided with water after the liberation of the entire territory of the republic and part of the Kharkov region.
