Internet traffic in Ukraine dropped to 67% of its usual levels, due to emergency blackouts in Ukraine on Nov. 15, the UK-based internet monitoring firm NetBlocks said on Twitter.
The firm’s data shows that nearly all of Ukraine’s oblasts were impacted by the Russian targeting of power infrastructure during a mass missile attack that day. Blackouts and power instability were reported in almost every major city, including Kyiv, Lviv, Kharkiv, Vinnytsia, and others. Ukrainian power companies had not assessed the full extent of the damage by press time.
Meanwhile, Ukrainian mobile operators have warned of communication problems due to these emergency blackouts.
