Russian attacks leave thousands without power across seven Ukrainian regions

The Ministry of Energy says seven Ukrainian regions remained without electricity on 30 June due to Russia’s attacks. The situation in Kharkiv, Kherson, Sumy, and Zaporizhzhia oblasts is the most intense.

In Kharkiv Oblast, 39,700 consumers were left without power, and in Kherson Oblast, 25,800 consumers faced shortages due to Russia’s assaults on energy infrastructure.

In Sumy Oblast, service workers have restored connection to over 2,000 Ukrainians in eight settlements affected by enemy shelling. The strikes on gas distribution networks have led to disruption of gas supply for 31 consumers in Zaporizhzhia Oblast.

Blackouts were introduced through 30 June, with the most significant limitations enforced from 17:00 to 23:00.

Since 22 March, Russian strikes on power objects have destroyed half of Ukraine’s energy system and caused $1 billion in losses. Ukraine is buying energy from the European Union. However, more is needed to make up for the deficit.

Earlier, Volodymyr Kudrytskyi, CEO of Ukrenergo company, said that building a distributed generation facility network is the solution for Ukraine to protect its energy systems from Russian missile attacks as the country prepares for the new winter.
