The company said that this marks the third attack on its generating facilities since the beginning of May, with a total of 33 attacks on DTEK Energy’s thermal power plants being carried out by Russia since September of last year.

Earlier, DTEK had disclosed information on when Ukrainians can expect further blackouts, as the country’s energy system will enter the next heating season with significantly reduced reserves of capacity.
