Infrastructure facilities in Ukraine were damage as a result of a massive missile attack by Russian forces on Dec. 5, Ukrenergo, the country’s biggest electricity transmission system operator, reported on Facebook on Nov. 5.
“The air raid alert continues; Ukraine is experiencing the eighth mass missile attack by the terrorist state,” Ukrenergo warned.
“Unfortunately, there are already hits on energy infrastructure facilities and related emergency power outages.”
The company added that technical crews are trying to maintain balance in the power system, and urged people to stay in shelters.
Previously, the Cherkasy Oblast military administration and the Sumy regional branch of Ukrenergo both announced that special schedules of emergency shutdowns are being introduced in these two regions.
As a result of the new attack, new power outages are reported in Odesa, Sumy, Zhytomyr, and Kryvyi Rih.
Mykolaiv Oblast has also introduced emergency power blackouts, while the Chernihiv and Ternopil administration also warned about that similar measures may be introduced in those oblasts.
Russia launched a new massive missile attack on Ukraine on Dec. 5. Around 1:10 p.m., a large-scale air raid alert was announced in Ukraine. Ukrainian air defenses were operating in several oblasts.
