Day 274 after the Russian attack on Ukraine:
The morning after the heavy Russian missile attacks could the Electricity and water supply in Kyiv only partially restored.
“70 percent of the capital has so far been without electricity,” said the mayor Vitali Klitschko on Thursday on his Telegram channel. At least it was possible to supply the districts on the left bank of the Dnipro with water again. Municipal services are working flat out to repair the damage, but Kiev’s electricity supply also depends on the stability of the entire energy system in Ukraine.
Heavy Russian attacks on Wednesday
According to Kiev, the Russian military shot down around 70 rockets and drones on Ukraine on Wednesday. As in the previous attacks, the targets were primarily objects in the energy sector. After the Ukrainian nuclear power plants were shut down as a result of the attack, there were power outages across the country.
The commander of the Russian troops in Ukraine, General Sergey Surovikin, had already gained notoriety during his deployment in Syria a few years earlier for attacking civilian targets in order to weaken his opponents. Following his appointment in Ukraine, attacks on the country’s critical infrastructure have become a key part of Russian warfare.
