"According to available information, on Sept. 2, 2015, as a result of an accident at Pervomaiska mine in the terrorist-held area of the Luhansk region,the drainage system went out of service, and a flooding followed. As proper repair work was not done, mining water will start flowing to the closed mines Holubovska, Rodina. As estimated, in June and July 2016, the whole Stakhanov-Briankovskyi region will be flooded as well as closed Kirov mines and a number of mines in government-controlled territory. This may result in a man-made catastrophe, as mining water pollutes aquifers, erodes fertile layers of soil, presses methane gas out onto the surface," the press service wrote.
