Following continued Russia’s shelling of some cities with attendant social dislocation in the European country, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky Thursday, November 17, 2022, said millions of Ukrainians had no electricity.

Report indicates fresh Russian strikes hit cities across Ukraine and crippled the country’s critical energy infrastructure.

President Zelensky said: “Currently, more than 10 million Ukrainians are without electricity.”

He stated that the most affected regions are Odessa, Vinnytsia, Sumy and Kyiv

The President said: “We are doing everything to normalise the supply.”

Recall that Ukraine has faced military strikes against its power grid after battlefield victories against Russia, the latest being Moscow’s retreat from the southern city of Kherson.

The latest strikes coincided with the first snow this season, after officials in Kyiv warned of “difficult” days ahead, reports AFP.

Damage to Ukraine’s electricity infrastructure has been so extensive that authorities have been imposing power cuts to relieve the grid, report said.
