The so-called "Ministry of Emergency Situations of the DNR" is working to eliminate the accident at the Skochinsky coal mine in occupied Donetsk without carrying out a search for the missing four miners. Separatist media write this.
"At the moment, we are preparing a survey of workings and exploration of workings of the western sublevel for the second shift. Two departments of mine rescuers - about 12 people - are now working partially in some workings", - one of the mine rescuers says.
According to him, their high-priority task is to measure the content of methane and gases that come out of the mine.
The rescuers will begin to search for the miners remaining underground only after excluding the possibility of an explosion.
As OstroV reported, an underground accident occurred at the Skochinsky coal mine in the Kirovskyi district of occupied Donetsk yesterday morning, November 17. It was also reported that four miners had gone missing during the accident - a leading miner, a chief and two deputies.
