As of 3:00 pm, Ukraine’s State Emergency Service of Ukraine (DSNS) recorded 11 deaths and 87 injuries as a result of a mass Russian missile strike on Ukrainian cities across the country on Oct. 10.
Damage to critical energy infrastructure was reported in Kyiv and eight other oblasts. 30 fires sprung up as a result of the strikes, DSNS said.
"Four oblasts - Lviv, Poltava, Sumy, and Ternopil - have no electricity,” the service announced.
“Power supply has been disturbed throughout the country.”
Firefighting efforts involved over 1,000 firefighters and 120 vehicles.
"About 70 objects are known to have been damaged, including 29 important infrastructure facilities, 4 multi-story buildings, and 35 residential houses, as well as a school in the capital," Ihor Klimenko, the Head of the National Police, wrote on his Facebook page.
Russians launched a mass missile strike against Kyiv, the capital city of Ukraine, on the morning of Oct. 10. Missiles also struck cities across the country.
According to President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, Russia has two aims: to strike energy facilities and terrorize civilians.
Zelenskyy’s Office urged Ukrainians to limit electricity consumption today from 5:00 to 10:00 pm, in order to lessen power loads on the Ukrainian grid and facilitate repairs.
