Power crisis in Ukraine deepens due to Russian attacks
Russia’s continuing missile strikes and shelling left parts of Ukraine’s villages, towns and two cities in darkness without electricity on Wednesday, according to news agency AP. Ukrainian officials gave this information. To bow down to Kyiv, Moscow is attacking its energy installations. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky urged Ukrainians to try to save the country’s energy installations ahead of last night’s attacks.
Enerhodar Mayor Dmitro Orlov said the city’s fires targeted power and water stations. The southern city is located near the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant, which has been the main target of attacks that have been going on for nearly eight months.
The regional governor said a power plant in Kryvyi Rih, located in Ukraine’s south-central region, was badly destroyed by missile strikes. Russia has become extremely aggressive after an attack on a bridge connecting Crimea with the country and launched a series of attacks on important Ukrainian sites, especially power plants.
