Mayor of Kyiv Vitalii Klitschko said on Telegram: “After the missile attack, due to emergency power outages, 40 per cent of the capital’s consumers are currently without heating. Water supply works normally.”

Governor of the Odesa region Maksym Marchenko also said on Telegram that a mass missile attack had hit an energy facility in the city. Residential areas were also hit but no casualties were immediately reported in this region.

The last line that fed the Zaporizhzhya Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP) was damaged, and that the station was working on diesel generators, Energy Minister Herman Galushchenko confirmed. “The Russians are putting the world on the brink of a nuclear catastrophe. And this is the day after the negotiations with the UN on the demilitarisation of the ZNPP,” he said.
