New waterway to Seversky 

Donets — Donbass canal to

 be built by end of summer 

— DPR ministry

June 9th, 9:49am (DAN) 

 

The construction of a new water duct from 

the Olkhovskoye and Khanzhenkovskoye 

reservoirs for filling the Seversky Donets 

— Donbass canal will be finished by the 

end of the summer, Donetsk People’s 

Republic Construction and Housing 

and Utilities Ministry told the 

Donetsk News Agency 

on Thursday.

 

“As for the construction of the water line to fill the

 Seversky-Donets — Donbass canal, it will be built 

by the end of the summer. Some works will be

 completed by July and the rest in August, ” 

the Ministry said.

 

The water line is being built by specialists of 

the Russian Defense Ministry’s Military 

Construction Complex.

 

Earlier reports said that the project comprised 

two stages.  A 21-kilometer water line to the

 Khanzhenkovsky reservoir will be built at 

the first stage. The 2nd stage envisions 

the construction of a 3-kilometre link

 between the Olkhovskoye and 

Khanzenkovskoye reservoirs.

 

The DPR began to experience water supply 

problems in February when its water supply 

facilities came under Kiev forces fire. 

Water supply to settlements was

 fully stopped or reduced 

and scheduled.

 

In late March, the DPR announced plans to build

 supply lines from alternative sources. Later on, 

more than a hundred specialists from Moscow 

arrived in the Republic to help resolve its 

water supply problems

Russian integrated treatment 


systems --- help DPR cope
with 
water shortages


June 2nd, 11:35am (DAN) 


 


The water purified with Russian integrated treatment


 systems which were provided to the DPR, will be 


used as the main source in cases of water 


supply shutdowns, the Donetsk city 


administration head, Alexey 


Kulemzin, told the Donetsk 


News Agency, Thursday.


 


''The tests carried out by the city sanitary


epidemiological service, show --- that the 


treated water can be used for household 


and practical needs such as cleaning, 


laundering or face washing,'' 


Kulemzin said. 


 


''In the case that the water supply fully stops, 


it will be used as drinking water --- after 


settling and boiling.''


 


The Russian equipment can purify 408 cubic metres 


of water in 12 hours. Its maximum usage... reaches 


20 hours a day with an output of 680 cubic metres. 


 


Kulemzin said that there is no need to operate the


equipment at full capacity at present, but if the


situation worsens, the water treatment 


systems will be utilized to 


the maximum.


 


In mid-April, Russia handed over to the Republic SKO-


10 and SKO-8 integrated water treatment systems. 


They had been installed at three Donetsk water 


reservoirs and two ponds in Makeyevka. 


 


Water is distributed to the population every day 


at designated places. Follow the link to see 


these locations.


 


SKO purifies water.. from solid particles, suspensions, 


colloidal compounds, ferric iron, artificial substances,


organic poisons, radionuclides, bacteria and viruses.


 


The system can take water from any source. 


All treatment processes are fully automatic.


 


The authorities are making efforts to provide residents


 of frontline areas with water. Kulemzin said that at


 least 100 tons of drinking and service water are


 supplied daily to Donetsk’s Kievsky, Kirovsky,


 Kuibyshevsky and Petrovsky districts, 


Yelenovka, Staromikhailovka, 


Alexandrovka and other 


settlements that 


regularly come 


under fire.

Of course the song below can inspire if you
think you are brave, and know something
of suffering... but keep your heart and
soul intact... because you are the
son or daughter of a miner; yet
the film above will inspire you
and touch you and help you
understand so much more.


The Miners' Next Step


In 1912 - this year that will be 110 years ago -
some of the best minds in Wales met 
and
produced a pamphlet:- 'The Miners' Next
Step' to guide miners to a 
better world,
so working people can build 
a future
without parasites or back-stabbers,
or bosses, or short-sighted greed.


Just like the people of Donbass, who, before
Russia's revolution, lived in the Free Lands
and worked to build their world... with love.


Their vision became - unfairly, in my opinion -
labelled as anarcho-syndicalism..... so was
discounted as a way forward by socialists
in Wales and the U.K.


Yet their analysis is as relevant today,
as ever, on questions like true
democracy and leadership.

Their pamphlet can be accessed
online, and I would urge you to
read it! If you want to create a
fab future for your loved ones..


P.S. hope you like the song!


Image: WHAT IS POSSIBLE THROUGH LOVE

The people of Donbass (pictured) are united and organised..


The Donbass and Wales and
The Miners' Next Step


The 
people of Donbass run their own army, police and civil

affairs, and run a successful economy, based on soviet
style factory 
and mine local democracy --- so they
decide how 
their buildings and parks, facilities
and arts and 
crafts, fulfill their needs
and values.



Because the Kiev government - brought into being
by US money and the Maiden violent insurrection
and coup - helped to power, extreme nationalist
forces.. the rest of Ukraine is trapped and
being stripped of its material wealth.

Local oligarchs, bowing to a West desperate to
keep its old role, as ''the chosen ones'' - plus
a group of psychotic 'US 'neo-cons'', who
genuinely welcome a ''decider'' world
war, now run things in Ukraine.
 
Millions of Ukrainians are leaving the country...
as prices rise and their economy is stripped,
and the war on the Donbass, backed by
 US-led NATO, is an open sore.

All in the middle of  a pandemic
and the Earth being poisoned
against humanity...  well!

And the miners of Wales who met in 1912,
planned.. then explained... how to work 
and achieve a better life, by realising
the 
dreams of the vast majority.


Their solution was to use the power
of organisation, to create
wealth.

They, at that time, planned to have 
the
local 
lodges use their organisational

skills.. to set up many businesses...

but any organisation can, right now,
call on a number of volunteers to
gladly work an hour a month...
and many will be happy to do
more. From each, according
to their ability and to each,
according to 
their need. 

That's 
the spirit. 

It's simple... and the only way
to achieve a beautiful world,
is bit by bit, until it's done. 

If three people or a few hundred
give one hour a month...  then
an affordable child nursery
for working parents, or a 
centre to entertain the
children after school,
are all possible.

 The reward?

No-one has to fight against anyone,
or rob or borrow money, as people
will volunteer, either their time,
gifts, or 
money, to a cause
which 
benefits all in your
community.


Love will grow even stronger
in your community.

The better place everyone wants,
will grow slowly, in peace, 
like a baby grows in
the womb.


That's the miners' Next Step 2.


*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   

This does not mean, by the way, that 
public ownership is a bad thing, but
that creative thinking is necessary.

We have seen how nationalised industries
 lack democratic accountability, and can
be used badly, by both Labour & Tory
governments --- as milk cows by the
private sector, or to massage the
unemployment figures.

And time and time again, after the public
has paid for 
investments, to make them
profitable...  they are ''re-privatised''.  

There are alternatives to the old failed model
of public ownership, as seen in this country.
Worker co-ops, Foundations, even charity
status... could be tried.

There's nothing especially socialist, about
nationalisation - Tories, even fascists use
it, when private ownership has failed..

It's
successful public ownership and
control... that brings real lasting
benefits, that's what we want!

The 'National Coal Board' closed more
collieries down, than even Thatcher!


Image: The Miners' Strike mementos of love

Many many thanks to Richard Gould,
a true genius, who has his own
group, yet gave up his time
to generate the music.

Also to Ceri of Big Pit, who might not
necessarily have agreed with the
politics, but was so generous
with his time and photos.

And to the Clydach Vale lake and cafe,
which is the best nearby example
of what is possible!

And last, but definitely not least,
a massive thank you to Becs...
who has the smile to warm
the world - and the guts
and generosity - to
appear on video.

DPR Post issues stamps featuring 


Welsh engineer John Hughes, 

founder of Donetsk

April 2nd, 2021 at 2:28pm

 (DAN news agency) 




The DPR's State Post has issued a postal stamp featuring 

John James Hughes, a Welsh engineer, businessman and 

founder of the city of Donetsk.

 

The stamp is decorated with Donetsk coat-of-arms and 

Hughes portrait. The stamp can be used for registered 

letters with receipt up to 20 gr, in accordance with the 

current fee rate of 44 rubles.

 

The number of copies issued is 30,024.

 

The envelope for the new stamp features pictograms 

representing industrial objects and clippings of 

Donbass geological map.

 

Hughes moved to the Russian Empire, in the summer of 1870, 

at the age of 55, as Millwall Iron Works Company received an 

order, from the Imperial Russian Government, for the plating 

of a naval fortress being built at Kronstadt on the Baltic Sea.

 

He immediately started to build metal works close to the 

river Kalmius, at a site near the village of Alexandrovka.

 

Over the next twenty years, the works prospered and
expanded, 
first under John Hughes and then, after
his death, in 1889, 
under the management of
four of his sons.

 

John Hughes died on June 17th, in 1889,
during 
a business trip to St Petersburg.

 

According to some sources, Hughes taught
himself 
to write, and could only read
capital letters.

Impressively large, fast 

construction projects 

in western Mariupol

June 21st, 2:17pm (DAN)

 

Less than a week ago, Mariupol launched a large

construction project to build a neighbourhood of 

12 five-storey apartment houses with an 

outpatient hospital... by the winter.

 

Hundreds of people are working on the construction

site on the premises of the former Azovsky market. 

They pour concrete for foundations and

simultaneously break ground for new 

ones, unload construction materials 

and lay service lines, working 

around the clock.

 

The Russian Defense Ministry is project supervisor.

 It has a considerable experience in building

 infrastructure, for example prefabricated 

medical centres which mushroomed 

during the coronavirus pandemic.

 

Tractors, trailer trucks, cranes, shouts of builders 

and the sound of working machinery create an 

atmosphere which would normally cause 

irritation and discomfort.

 

But here, despite the background of frames 

of abandoned apartmentbuildings which 

had been damaged by Ukrainian gun-

men fire, this activity makes one 

happy as it gives hope for the 

revival of the city and its 

return to normal life.

 

Earlier reports said that it is planned to build almost

100,000 square metres of living space (over 1,000
apartments) in the area. Half of the houses will 

be commissioned by October, and the rest 

together with the hospital a month later. 

 

Construction projects are implemented by companies

 from three Russian regions in other parts of Mariupol.

 

Mariupol is the largest city on the Sea of Azov coast, 

a key Donbass metallurgy centre and seaport. It was

 liberated from Ukrainian troops on April 21st, 2022. 

 

The city housing stock and infrastructure sustained

significant damage. Damage assessment is under-

way. Water and electricity supply is being restored 

in the city. The seaport resumed operation in

 late May.

The State Defense Committee (GKO) of the Donetsk

 People’s Republic has prohibited the registration 

of the legal entities controlled by residents of the

 countries which are unfriendly to the DPR 

and Russia.

 

GKO Resolution No 107 of June 3, 2022, posted on the

 DPR Head’s official website late on Monday came into

 force from the date of publication. It says that the

 Republic denies registration to the legal entities

 whose executives, founders or beneficiaries are

 residents of the unfriendly or offshore countries.

 

The list of these countries is attached to the

 document and includes Great Britain, the 

USA, EU countries and Ukraine (except

 the liberated areas).

 

The legal entities which have completed the

 registration procedure have two months to 

dismiss the persons or founders that 

belong to the above groups. The 

legal entity will stop operation

 if it fails to comply with these

 regulations.

 

The Administration of the DPR Head explained: 

the measures envisioned in the GKO resolution 

are aimed at ensuring DPR economic interests

 and security.

said.  ''It's our native land. We will open the road to
traffic, 
and I will go there in person; construction
teams will 
arrive for repairs. They will also carry
out repairs, 
after yesterday’s dam explosion,
which damaged 
windows in houses; we will
carry out the 
repairs quickly.''

mains... for leaks.”

 

The Starokrymsky Water Treatment Plant has 

been reconnected to the power grid which 

actually launched the electricity supply 

to the city, he added.

 

A lack of centralized water supply is currently one of

the most acute city problems.  During the fighting in 

the city residents used heating radiators, fire plugs

 and even drainage, to get water. The situation

 improved, after the liberation of the larger 

part of the city. Water delivery has been 

arranged for the population, since. 

Several dozen tons of water are 

delivered to Mariupol, daily.

 

Mariupol is the largest city on the Sea of Azov coast, 

a key Donbass metallurgy centre, and a seaport. 


Clashes for Mariupol began, on February 25th; 

the city was fully blocked in the course of the 

fighting and then cleared of the invaders. At 

present, the surviving gunmen of the neo-

Nazi “Azov” formation (the organization 

banned in the DPR) are blocked in the 

Azovstal plant industrial zone.

The Donetsk People’s Republic Prosecutor

General’s Office has instituted criminal

proceedings against Andrey Biletsky, 

one of the leaders of Ukrainian neo-

Nazis who founded the “Azov” group

(banned in the DPR), the PGO press 

service reported on Tuesday.

 

“Prosecutors found out that on April 22nd, 2022,

 Andrey Biletsky, in an interview with Ukraine’s

 NTA television channel, called for extremist

 actions, i.e. particularly serious crimes 

such as ethnically-motivated hate 

murders,” the press service said.

 

In the interview, Biletsky commented on the

 plan of the liberated Mariupol’s authorities 

to organize an Immortal Regiment march 

in the city on May the 9th. 

 

The neo-Nazi leader threatened a missile strike

 at the participants of the march, saying that

 Ukrainian armed formations were capable 

of “delivering an adequate and powerful

 answer” using Tochka-U 

tactical missiles.

 

The PGO said that Biletsky’s actions are

 covered by a DPR Criminal Code Article 

325, Part 2 (public calls for extremism 

made with the use of mass media).

The article carries a maximum 

penalty of five years in prison.

 

Mariupol is the largest city on the Sea of Azov

coast, a key Donbass metallurgy centre and

seaport. Clashes for Mariupol began on

February 25th; the city was fully 

blocked in the course of the 

fighting and then cleared 

of the invaders. 

 

At present, the surviving gunmen are
blocked 
in the Azovstal plant
industrial zone.

 

Andrey Biletsky, is the founder and 

a commander of the “Azov” armed 

group, head of the National Corps

neo-Nazi Party. He took part in 

the punitive operation against 

Donbass - and repeatedly 

issued barbaric orders 

- to deliver strikes at 

peaceful towns in 

the region.

 

In 2019, he suggested using the Israeli

experience on the DPR and LPR: give 

up the measures on a peaceful 

settlement of the conflict, 

return Ukrainian troops 

to positions, shut down

the checkpoints and 

stop any water and 

electricity supply 

to the Donbass 

Republics.

Mariupol administration head Konstantin

 Ivaschenko said that social tensions 

were gradually decreasing in the

liberated city areas thanks to

 relief supplies delivered 

to residents.

 

“We’ve set up eleven centres, that provide

 assistance to the population, and five or 

6 more such centres will appear in new

 liberated areas,” Ivaschenko told the 

Donetsk News Agency. "Social 

tensions where these centres 

operate, have slightly...

 decreased.”

 

“We handed out up to 7,000 food kits per person

 on certain days in the “Metro” area (former

 shopping mall, which accommodates the

 humanitarian aid centre sponsored by 

the “United Russia” Party  - eds 

Donetsk News Agency)”... he 

said - adding that more than 

ten mobile volunteer groups 

work in the city. They pass 

foodstuffs to residents in 

the most deprived and 

dangerous areas.

 

“Some said that volunteers from Ukraine and

 Baltic states bring relief supplies here... No, 

don’t believe anyone; there is no such thing. 

Only humanitarian missions from Russia 

and the Donetsk People’s Republic 

work here,”  Ivaschenko said.

 

Mariupol is the largest city on the Sea of Azov

“So --- people see that the situation is changing 

for the better and that work proceeds by leaps

are operating; they’re doing a tremendous 

job. Of course, one would like to do it 

faster, but I believe that they’ve 

already done an excellent job."

promote Nazism.

 

The information in these textbooks is prepared

“We will deal with this separately, and 

the General Prosecutor’s Office and

about for children with money 

from foreign organizations”,

 A humanitarian aid distribution centre will be

set up in Donetsk; earlier... the ONF opened

one in Lugansk, ONF Executive Committee

 Chairman, Mikhail Kuznetsov, told the 

Donetsk News Agency.

 

“We decided to open People’s Front missions in

 on the same day when Russia recognized 

the independence of the Donbass states,”

 Kuznetsov said. “On April 6th we opened 

a warehouse... and a humanitarian aid 

distribution centre in Lugansk. We’ll 

open a similar centre in Donetsk in 

the near future.. and then we’ll 

register the ONF permanent 

missions... in accordance 

with DPR and LPR laws.”

“As recently as March 20th, we were the first to

 deliver humanitarian cargo to Mariupol, jointly

& the Emergency Situations Ministry and

 handed out food kits...  on Shevchenko 

Avenue,” the ONF representative said.

...and ineffective government spending, 

helps improve standards of living and 

protects citizens’ rights.

Italian activists are to film a documentary 

about the residents of the liberated cities 

of Volnovakha and Mariupol, said David

 Cacchione, the leader of an Italian 

antifascist band Banda Bassotti.

 

“We have visited Volnovakha and Mariupol,

talked to the locals --- who survived all the 

horrors of the war, Ukrainian atrocities. 

We must show the film in Europe so 

that everyone can see... the truth 

about what is happening, about

 what Ukraine has done,” 

Cacchione said.

 

He added that the film will be based on the

 stories of local residents, the crimes of 

Kyiv against civilians, as well as the 

restoration of a peaceful life in the 

liberated areas by the authorities 

of the DPR.

 

“To us --- everything that is happening here 

is the struggle of Donbass against Ukraine.
Unfortunately, Europe does not realize that 

fascism rules in Ukraine now, we can see

 it here, nationalist battalions "Donbass"

 and "Aidar" are an example. They 

exterminate -- the population of 

Donbass. Since we understand 

that the war started here in 

2014, we understand what 

Russia is doing now. It is 

ending this war,” said 

Francesco Sabuzi, a 

co-organizer... of the 

Carovana Antifascista

project - joining more 

than 50 people from 

nine countries.

 

They are delivering humanitarian 

aid to Donbass on a regular basis.

 

Banda Bassotti is an Italian ska-punk band

 formed in 1987 in Rome, Italy. Their songs 

are generally political in nature, focusing 

on anti-Fascist issues. They perform in 

Italian, Spanish, English, Japanese, 

Basque, Yiddish and Russian.

of Donbas.

 

It is reported that people even under fire 

come to the part of the city where the

 humanitarian aid convoy will be 

located.

 

 Afterwards, representatives of the National

 Security Forces arrive there with guns in 

their hands, and they prohibit them from 

receiving humanitarian aid – they take 

it for themselves.

 

And this is not an isolated case, as
we know
 from the people who are

 plans will be revised, as well as investments 

in water supply and in treatment systems, 

repairs of residential & social facilities,

the restructuring of coal enterprises, 

of power generation and supply to 

customers, & communications.''

 

Today, the top priority, according to the

 minister, is the liberation of the entire 

territory of the Republic and the 

assessment of the remaining 

industrial potential.

 

''In the near future, the issues of registration of

 business entities should be resolved, and 

later... the focus will be on finding the

resources to restore and build new

 industrial ties,'' Polovyan said.

The water supply situation in the  Donetsk

 People’s Republic capital is catastrophic, 

city administration head Alexey Kulemzin 

said in his address to the local population.

 

The Seversky Donets - Donbass canal is the

 main water supply source for Donetsk. 


Strikes by Ukrainian armed formations 

caused power outages at the key 

water supply facilities including

 Yuzhnodobassky Duct’s 1st 

level pumping station. 

 

Water has been supplied to the city from a 

backup reservoir since; several Donetsk

 districts have been cut off from water 

supply since early March.

 

“Dramatic shortages prompted the authorities

 to reduce water supply but this did not solve

 the problem.  The water reserve will be

 depleted within two weeks. On March

 30th --- the city will turn off central 

heating. It is a forced measure, to 

save the water which is daily fed 

to heat distribution networks,”

 the city mayor said.

 

Earlier, the Yasinovataya mayor 

announced a similar measure.

 

On Monday, the authorities decided to reduce

 water supply to two hours every other day. 

 

Earlier, they turned off hot water 

for customers to economize.

Donetsk’s main water reservoir has become


 shallow and can only be used for slightly 


more than a month, Donetsk People’s 


Republic Emergencies Minister 


Alexey Kostrubitsky said 


on Tuesday.


 


“The water supply situation is difficult; a


 decision has been made to reduce the


water supply. In Donetsk, water will be 


supplied for two hours within a 48-hour 


period; this schedule will enable the 


reservoir to last for 35 to 40 days; 


otherwise the city will run out of 


water in two weeks,” Kostrubitsky 


said on Russia 24 news channel. 


 


“During this time, we plan to build


 supply lines from alternative 


sources.”


 


The Seversky Donets - Donbass canal is de-


energised through Ukraine’s fault and DPR


 specialists have no opportunity to carry 


out repairs, he added.


 


The DPR began to have water supply problems


 after Ukrainian forces delivered strikes at key


 water supply facilities. The Republic


 suspended or reduced water supply 


in a number of settlements. For 


example, water is supplied 


from 19:00 to 21:00 every 


other day in Donetsk and


 from 18:00 to 21:00 


every three days 


in Makeyevka.

 Rescuers receive hundreds of messages from

 residents of liberated areas of the Donetsk

 People’s Republic, every day, head of the

 Interdepartmental Operations HQ, DPR's

 Emergencies Minister, Civil Defense 

Service Lieutenant-General Alexey 

Kostrubitsky, told the Donetsk 

News Agency on Tuesday.

 

“We hear many words of gratitude for our work

but also receive hundreds of reports on local

problems; such as appeals to deliver

humanitarian aid to bedridden 

patients, or help a chairbound 

pensioner get out of the cellar 

and take them to hospital,” 

Kostrubitsky said. 

 

“They often ask us to defuse explosive 

objects lying in their yards.   There is 

much work to do; we’re working.”

 

The minister said that the humanitarian
situation in the liberated areas mostly 

depends on how heavy the fighting 

there had been. 

 

The common problems include a large 

amount of explosive hazards and the 

need to restore gas, electricity and 

water supplies, plus demolished 

residential areas, and mobile

communication.

 

Emergencies Ministry staff help repair the 

electricity grid and electrical substations.

“We want to restore a normal, peaceful 

and quiet life for our compatriots,
as 
soon as possible,” he said.

 

On March 1st, the DPR Head Denis Pushilin

approved the provision on the Interdepart-

mental Operations HQ to coordinate 

priorities in the life support of the 

population in the liberated areas, 

and appointed DPR Emergencies

Minister, Alexey Kostrubitsky,
to 
lead it.

Nineteen medical institutions have resumed

 operation in the liberated areas of the DPR, 

special attention is given to pregnant 

women and children, the DPR's

 Ministry of Health said.

 

"Nineteen medical institutions have resumed 

operation in the liberated areas of the DPR, 

they are supplied with medications for
outpatient care.''

''Face-to-face 
consultations are available 

every day. Special attention is given to
pregnant women
 and children."

 

Russia started a special military operation to

 denazify & demilitarize Ukraine on February 

24th. Russian President Vladimir Putin said 

that the decision was made after the DPR 

& LPR Heads addressed him asking 

for help.

 

The Russian leader said that Moscow is not

 planning to occupy Ukrainian territory, the

 only goal is to protect people who have 

been continuously shelled & subjected 

to other forms of genocide by Ukraine,

 for eight years.

Impressively large, fast 

construction projects 

in western Mariupol

June 21st, 2:17pm (DAN)

 

Less than a week ago, Mariupol launched a large

construction project to build a neighbourhood of 

12 five-storey apartment houses with an 

outpatient hospital... by the winter.

 

Hundreds of people are working on the construction

site on the premises of the former Azovsky market. 

They pour concrete for foundations and

simultaneously break ground for new 

ones, unload construction materials 

and lay service lines, working 

around the clock.

 

The Russian Defense Ministry is project supervisor.

 It has a considerable experience in building

 infrastructure, for example prefabricated 

medical centres which mushroomed 

during the coronavirus pandemic.

 

Tractors, trailer trucks, cranes, shouts of builders 

and the sound of working machinery create an 

atmosphere which would normally cause 

irritation and discomfort.

 

But here, despite the background of frames 

of abandoned apartmentbuildings which 

had been damaged by Ukrainian gun-

men fire, this activity makes one 

happy as it gives hope for the 

revival of the city and its 

return to normal life.

 

Earlier reports said that it is planned to build almost

100,000 square metres of living space (over 1,000 apartments) in the area. Half of the houses will 

be commissioned by October, and the rest 

together with the hospital a month later. 

 

Construction projects are implemented by companies

 from three Russian regions in other parts of Mariupol.

 

Mariupol is the largest city on the Sea of Azov coast, 

a key Donbass metallurgy centre and seaport. It was

 liberated from Ukrainian troops on April 21st, 2022. 

 

The city housing stock and infrastructure sustained

significant damage. Damage assessment is under-

way. Water and electricity supply is being restored 

in the city. The seaport resumed operation in

 late May.
