Today, Nadezhda Redyakina, head of the Department of Standardisation and Conformity Assessment of the LNR State Committee on Metrology, Standardisation, and Technical Measurements, told us during a meeting devoted to public policy on baked goods quality that the RF Federal Agency for Technical Regulation and Metrology officially allowed the LNR to use Russian Federation national quality standards. She said:

After a series of talks, today, we have official permission from Rosstandart Chairman Aleksei Abramov to use GOST-R Russian national standards in the LNR. Russia gave us access to their state standards, which they update every month. We no longer have access to the Ukrainian Fund of State Quality Standards. LNR manufacturers were using “pre-war” DSTU standards, but these were “frozen”, as we can’t keep track of any changes or cancellations in Ukrainian standards, as we don’t interact with the Ukraine.

Today, Donbassgaz employees started up a new gas boiler in Gorlovka to provide heat for more than 640 families in Rtutny Micro-Raion. They hooked up ten apartment buildings to the gas supply grid; the cost of the project exceeded 750,000 Roubles (77,000 Renminbi. 787,000 INR. 12,200 USD. 15,700 CAD. 16,600 AUD. 10,700 Euros. 7,900 UK Pounds). Sergei Filippov, Head of Donbassgaz, Maksim Leshchenko (who lit the ceremonial torch), Head of Administration for the DNR Chairman of the Government, Roman Khramenkov, Head of the Gorlovka  GMA*, Donbassgaz staff, and locals attended the launch ceremony. Filippov said:

Today, the appropriate agencies carried out the instructions of [Chairman Zakharchenko] on the building of 340 metres of pipeline to connect boiler station №25 to the main gas supply grid permanently. The fighting in the city on 18 January damaged the high-pressure gas supply pipeline serving northeastern Gorlovka. Donbassgaz staff managed to hook up the gas pipeline network to low-pressure sources, but it wasn’t possible to ramp up heat for the people of Rtutny Micro-Raion. Thus, we needed to build a new pipeline to connect with the existing gas supply grid. In July 2015, we came up plans calling for laying a new pipeline over the Seversky Donets-Donbass Canal following the route of an existing low-pressure gas pipeline.

Khramenkov said:

I want to thank the Donbassgaz staff for their tireless work to tackle all the problems to bring heat to our people’s homes.

Throughout the active operations in the recent war, Gorlovka was one of the most “hot” spots. Official figures show that junta attacks killed 164 civilians and injured 501 more. Due to the constant bombardment of infrastructure, there were regular interruptions of such basic public utilities as water, gas, electricity, and heat.
