Russian troops struck a number of settlements in Zaporizhzhya Oblast with S-300 missiles on the night of Nov. 4, regional governor Oleksandr Starukh reported on Telegram.
A gas pipe was damaged as a result, he reported, and a fire broke out. Firefighters were able to subdue the flame. Early reports indicate there were no victims.
Russia has targeted crucial and energy infrastructure across Ukraine since Oct. 10, which has led to a decrease in Ukraine’s power generation output. Power operators have had to introduce rolling blackouts and emergency outages during overloads in response.
On Oct. 31., Russia launched a barrage of 55 cruise missiles at power generation and distribution facilities across Ukraine, damaging 18 of them across ten oblasts.
Earlier, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that the attacks have damaged at least 40% of Ukraine’s power infrastructure.
