Meanwhile, the Ukrainian side continues preparations for repairing the bridge in Stanytsia Luhanska, one of the first three disengagement locations, Ukrainian members of the Joint Centre for Control and Co-ordination (JCCC) said in a statement on September 22.

In particular, workers of Ukraine's civil engineering firm Ukrtransmist have begun to lay concrete slabs near pier 7 and pier 8 on the left side of the bridge for the foundation of a temporary bridge, it said.

They are installing metal frameworks for piers and coating the right side of the bridge with asphalt. Workers of a Ukrainian-controlled local road maintenance service are removing roadside trash and installing cable rails.

Civil volunteers and members of the Red Cross work 24/7 close to the broken part of the old bridge on the Ukrainian side to provide social assistance to local civilians.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Russia-led forces mounted 13 attacks on Ukrainian positions in Donbas, eastern Ukraine, on September 21. From 00:00 to 19:00 on September 22, enemy troops attacked Ukrainian forces 10 times; one Ukrainian soldiers was wounded in action.
