Some 50% of Ukraine’s capital Kyiv is without power on Friday morning following Russian strikes on critical infrastructure that led to widespread power cuts, according to Ukrainian authorities.
The Kyiv city military administration said on Telegram that water has been fully restored and emergency crews are working fast to restore heat to the city.
It added that “as soon as the power system stabilizes, communication will appear in all districts of Kyiv,” after power outages impacted mobile networks.
Remember: Russia’s targeting of critical infrastructure on Wednesday resulted in the temporary shutdown of most of Ukraine’s power plants and left the majority of people without electricity. The Ukrainian armed forces said 70 Russian missiles were launched on Wednesday afternoon and 51 shot down, along with five attack drones.
