«It is my first visit to Donbas from the beginning of my work in Ukraine as Ambassador. „Water of Donbas“ plays a critical role in ensuring the water supply of Donbas on both sides of the contact line. We highly appreciate the work of the company's employees who often sacrifice their lives for the sake of constant water supply,» Takashi Karai, Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of Japan to Ukraine said.

He noted that since 2014, in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, Japan has provided assistance for $ 47 million.

«Water — the most important condition for the existence of people in any territory.

Those conditions, in which „Water of Donbas“ and the workers of the company, which carry out their duties, now deserve high respect», — Oleksandr Kuts, the chairman of the Donetsk Regional State Administration, said during the event.

«The technique is very useful for us, the equipment is appropriate and the power supply is a self-contained and fully user-friendly machine. On cars, as on SUVs, you can ride off-road. And since we have off-roads almost everywhere, but people constantly need to go for repairs, it is very useful,» said Victor Marin, a locksmith-repair technician of «Water of Donbas».
