V1.ru writes that about 200 thousand people were left without water.

Now they have to adapt to life without heat and water.

Locals stand in long queues for technical water, which is brought up by fire trucks. But you can’t drink and wash with her, so you have to go to friends from other areas — collect water in buckets and eggplants. Richer people rent an apartment for this purpose. Someone draws water directly from puddles and drains to go to the toilet. The apartments themselves are cold — you have to warm yourself from stoves and split systems, but they are not enough. Volgograd residents complain that the authorities do not give them any deadlines for completing repairs. They promise to give water from day to day, leaving in the dark.
