Vitali Klitschko, the Mayor of Kyiv, has stated that 70% of the city’s territory still has no power supply.
As he wrote on Telegram, energy industry professionals spent the entire night of November 24 working on restoring the city's life support system. According to Klitschko, their progress will depend on restoring the balance in the national power grid because Kyiv forms part of it.
The Mayor also underlines that works on restoring the water supply are underway. Kyivvodokanal specialists have already restored it on the left bank and plan to complete works on the right bank on November 24.
November 23 saw another Russian attack on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure. The heavy shelling caused interruptions throughout all nuclear power plants controlled by Kyiv, with power units switched off at the South Ukraine NPP and the Khmelnytskyi NPP, and the Rivne NPP in emergency mode. Almost all regions of Ukraine have had emergency power cutoffs, with Kyiv left almost entirely without electricity. The Russian strikes also caused power outages in half of Moldova.
