Meanwhile, Donetsk is preparing for the arrival of the water: the equipment is being debugged on the grids,” the Ministry of Defense said in a statement.

It is noteworthy that the new channel is an object that has no analogues in Russia. The agency reports that military builders are now filling sections of the canal under high pressure, as well as checking the quality of connections and testing pumping equipment for operation in various modes.
According to the Ministry of Defense, there are eight stations on the aqueduct, after passing which the water will flow into the Seversky Donets Canal, where it will be taken by the Water of Donbass Corporation for the needs of the region. The department added that after reaching the design capacity, the filling of the Makeevsky and Verkhne-Kalmius warehouses will begin.
The ministry noted that specialists of the military construction complex of the Russian Ministry of Defense and companies from all over the country built the Don-Seversky-Donets-Donbass water pipeline in a record four months, while these roads are usually built for several years.
The construction is being carried out on behalf of the President of Russia in order to avoid a humanitarian catastrophe that could arise if the Ukrainian army destroys the main infrastructure in Donbass.
