The Ukraine state energy and electricity sector has announced regular blackouts in Kyiv, due to Russia’s constant attacks and destruction of properties.
Russia has continued to send destructive missiles and drones to Ukraine, inflicting damage on power plants, water supplies, and other civilian targets.
Ukrenergo, the sole operator of Ukraine’s high-voltage transmission lines, said in a statement that scheduled blackouts will take place in the capital and the greater Kyiv region, as well as several regions around it.
Russia has denied sending drones to Ukraine, even when Iran finally admitted to producing a particular kind of drone for the country’s forces.
The outages are expected to last for six and more hours each day, according to reports from the state energy sector.
Later in the day, however, the company released an update saying that scheduled outages for a specific number of hours are not enough and instead there will be emergency outages, which could last an indefinite amount of time.
Russia has also continued to attack Ukraine by any means possible, aside from nuclear means for now, as they hey shooting, and sending missiles.
About 40 shells were fired overnight at the city of Nikopol, Dnipropetrovsk governor Valentyn Reznichenko said on Telegram. The Russian forces targeted the city and the areas around it.
Fire from the attack broke out and some buildings were burnt. The injury toll in Ukraine has also seen a new regular high.
In the southern Mykolaiv region, the overnight shelling of rural areas damaged several houses, but did not cause any casualties.
In the eastern Donetsk region, also annexed and partially occupied by Russia, eight cities and villages have been shelled, including Bakhmut, Avdiivka and Porkovsk.
But the smaller country is aiming to fight the war against their neighbors from start to finish no matter what happens.
