The grand majority of Lviv residents, around 90%, have been cut off of power following explosions in the city caused by a Russian mass missile strike on Dec. 29, Lviv Mayor Andriy Sadovyi said on Telegram.

"90% of Lviv is without light,” he wrote.

“We are waiting for additional information from energy experts. Trams and trolleybuses do not run in the city. There may be interruptions with the water supply. We are switching critical infrastructure facilities to diesel generators."

The air raid sirens on Dec. 29 rang for four hours and 44 minutes, during which time Russia launched over 120 missiles towards Ukrainian targets, according to the presidential administration. Lviv Oblast governor Maksym Kozytskyy warned that the threat of repeated strikes persist, and urged residents to say in shelters during air raids.
