Large&scale power outages reported across Ukraine after Russian strikes (VIDEOS)

One attack severely damaged the Dnepr Hydro Power Plant in the Kiev-controlled part of Zaporozhye Region, local officials say

The Russian military has launched one of its most powerful waves of air and missile strikes on Ukrainian energy infrastructure in recent weeks, officials in Kiev have said. The Defense Ministry in Moscow has yet to comment on the claims.

In a post on Facebook on Friday, Ukrainian Energy Minister German Galushchenko alleged that Russia’s goal was “not only to damage, but to try again, like last year, to cause a large-scale failure of the country’s energy system.”

“Unfortunately, there are hits and damage to power generation facilities, transmission and distribution systems in various regions,” he wrote, claiming that one of the power lines linked to Russia’s Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant had been severed. Zaporozhye Region joined Russia in a referendum in the fall of 2022.
