Russia attacked an infrastructure facility in Kryvyi Rih – a city of 600,000 people in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast – with an Iranian kamikaze drone, leaving parts of the city without power and water supply, Head of the Military Administration of Kryvyi Rih, Oleksandr Vilkul, said in a Telegram post on Nov. 2.

“Several city districts are without power and water,” said Vilkul.

“It’s yet unclear whether there were any casualties (in the attack). Repairs are already underway.”

Earlier on Nov. 2, Russia launched kamikaze drones at civilian infrastructure in Kharkiv and Zaporizhzhia.

Dnipropetrovsk Oblast was one of the regions that had to deal with induced blackouts on Nov. 2, in order to prevent the power grid from overloading.
