A missile attack seriously damaged a key energy facility in Ukraine’s capital region, the country’s power system operator said on October 15.
Kyiv region Governor Oleksiy Kuleba said the strike did not kill or injure anyone.
Electricity transmission company Ukrenergo said repair crews were working to restore power but warned residents about possible outages.
Kyrylo Tymoshenko, the deputy head of Ukraine’s presidential office, urged Kyiv area residents and people in three neighboring regions to reduce their energy consumption during evening hours of peak demand.
“All that is necessary today is to approach electricity consumption as rationally as possible,” Tymosheko said.
After a truck bomb explosion a week ago damaged a key bridge linking Russia to the occupied Crimean Peninsula, the Kremlin launched what is believed to be its largest coordinated missile attacks since the invasion of Ukraine.
Ukraine has not claimed responsibility for the bridge bombing.
Authorities reported shelling in several regions overnight.
Infrastructure was hit in the southern city of Zaporizhzhya, close to the front, and fires were reported. Governor Oleh Staruch called on people to seek safety in shelters.
