The power situation in the city of Kharkiv remains difficult, with nearly half the city lacking electricity after a Russian mass missile attack in the early hours of March 9, regional governor Oleh Synehubov said on national television on March 10.
However, power and water supplies to critical infrastructure facilities in the city have been nearly completely resorted, the governor added, and power companies are re-powering households in stages.
Public electric transport, such as trams, remains offline due to insufficient available voltage, Synehubov noted.
Outside Kharkiv, 90 percent of Kharkiv Oblast is powered.
Russian troops continued to shell border settlements in Kharkiv Oblast on March 10, the governor added.
Shelling attacks on the village of Olkhovatka in the Kupyansk district caused damaged to a children’s psychological rehabilitation facility, as well as a school.
In the early hours of March 9, Russia launched a massive missile attack on Ukraine. Explosions were heard in many cities and regions, including Kyiv, Lviv, and Kharkiv.
In total, the Russian military fired 81 missiles and eight Shahed UAVs, almost half of which were shot down. During the attack, Russian troops used six Kh-47 Kinzhal air-launched missiles, which cannot yet be intercepted by Ukrainian air defense.
The aggressor also fired 11 S-300 missiles at Kharkiv, leading to shortages of water, heating, and electricity supplies.
