“During this week, Dokucheyevsk Flux and Dolomite Plant has been under shelling from all sides. Actually, the plant found itself in the epicentre of military actions. After the shelling, the plant’s administrative buildings, workshops, equipment, power transmission lines, electric substations and railways were damaged. Besides, an unexploded shell was disarmed in the territory of the central warehouse. Shells fall onto the plant and its peaceful employees, who cannot leave the plant. We are in a deep grieve and express our condolence to Larysa Alcheieva’s family”, Said Sergey Onishchenko, the Chairman of the Board of Dokucheyevsk Flux and Dolomite Plant.
