Avdiyivka coking plant today, March 6, reported a full emergency stop to its operations, according to the company CEO Musa Magomedov.

"Today there was a complete emergency shutdown as a result of insulation breach of one of the repeatedly shelled, damaged cables,” Magomedov wrote on Facebook.

However, within an hour, by using a 2.5-megawatt generator and a soft starter, we managed to… resume coke production and own generation. We are alive and we continue our work," he wrote.

Magomedov added that a damage was revealed today during an inspection of a power line, but the ceasefire was not guaranteed. The plant CEO said he hoped that on March 7, the power supply to the town of Avdiyivka would be restored, as well as to the plant and the Donetsk water filtration station.
