There are power outages in parts of Ukraine after reported strikes on critical infrastructure.
Emergency power cuts have been introduced in the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv after strikes on infrastructure facilities in the region, according to the country’s biggest energy supplier, Yasno.
“The outage schedules are temporarily out of order until the situation is stabilized,” it said in a statement.
In southern Ukraine, the entire Odesa region is without electricity, the regional state administration's Maksym Marchenko said on Telegram.
“Due to the massive missile strike on the energy infrastructure of Ukraine, there is temporarily no electricity supply in Odesa region and other regions of Ukraine,” he said.
Problems were reported as far west as Lviv.
“The whole city is without electricity,” Mayor Andriy Sadovyi said. “We are waiting for more information from the energy specialists. There may be interruptions in water supply. Stay in shelters.”
Mykhailo Podolyak, an adviser to the Head of the Office of President of Ukraine, said on Twitter that, “a new massive attack on [Ukrainian] infrastructure facilities is underway.”
