Massive power outages in Ukraine after Russian most massive-yet missile strike on energy infrastructure – UPDATING

Russia has launched 70 cruise missiles (Kalibr, Kh-101 and Kh-555) and five kamikaze drones hittingl critical civilian infrastructure and residential areas all over Ukraine, according to the Air Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The Ukrainian air defense has downed 51 missiles, including 21 missiles out of 31 that headed towards the Ukrainian capital Kyiv.

Russian missile attacks on residential areas and critical civilian infrastructure in the Kyiv Oblast wounded more than 30 people, including four children, according to the head of the Kyiv Oblast Administration Oleksiy Kuleba.

The Russian missile attack on residential areas in Kyiv killed three people (including a 17-year-old girl) and wounded 11. One of the Russian missiles has hit an apartment building in Kyiv.

The Russian missile strike has damaged a thermal plant in Kyiv, according to the Mayor of Kyiv Vitalii Klychko.

Six people got killed and 36 wounded during the Russian massive missile attack on Ukraine.

The Russian attack on Ukraine’s energy system has led to power outages all over the country. 15 Ukraine’s oblasts out of 25 are in blackout right now. Millions of Ukrainians are cut off from heating and water supply. Several regions in Ukraine have no Internet connection.

Bridget A. Brink, the US Ambassador in Ukraine, has reacted to the massive missile attack that rocked Ukrainian cities all over the country:

More cruel missile strikes across the country as Russia tries to punish Ukraine for daring to be free. I have seen the strength of the people of Ukraine, and I know Russia’s attempt to dominate Ukraine by plunging it into the cold and dark will fail. We stand with Ukraine.

Ukraine’s Minister of Defense Oleksii Reznikov noted that the missile strike coincides with the European Parliament’s designation of Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism:

So did Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba:

Moldova, Ukraine’s neighboring state, has power outages all over the country following Russian massive missile attack on Ukraine, according to the Deputy Prime Minister of Moldova Andrei Spinu.

The air raid alert in Ukraine was on for two hours and 21 minutes in a row. The massive missile attack of the Russian forces has caused power outages all over Ukraine. 80% of Kyiv residents have no electricity ans running water.

Subway trains in Kharkiv (eastern Ukraine) and Kyiv have been stopped due to the power outage and resumed the transportation of passengers with longer intervals between trains. Thousands of Ukrainians, who had been hiding from the Russian missiles at subway stations underground, got a chance to return back home to find no heating, electricity and running water.
