Russia launched over 1,000 strikes at Ukraine’s power grid
Russian forces have fired more than 1,000 rockets and missiles at Ukraine’s power grid, which is still working despite taking major damage, Head of Ukrainian National Power Company “Ukrenergo” Volodymyr Kudrytskyi said.
Eight recent waves of Russian air strikes on critical infrastructure have seriously damaged the grid and led to emergency and planned outages across the country. — The Guardian reports.
“These attacks represent the biggest blow to a power grid that humanity has ever seen. More than 1,000 shells and rockets were fired at electrical facilities and lines, including substations,” Volodymyr Kudrytskyi said.
The system is still working; it is integrated, not broken or disconnected, the head of “Ukrenergo” assured.
