Live updates: Russia’s war in Ukraine
Power restrictions will be in place across at least seven Ukrainian regions Saturday, according to state energy company Ukrenergo.
Starting at 6 a.m. local time (12 a.m. ET Saturday) the utility’s dispatch center would limit electricity supply for consumers in the following areas, according to a Telegram post: Kyiv city, Kyiv region, Chernihiv region, Cherkasy region, Zhytomyr region, Sumy region, Kharkiv region and Poltava region.
“Repair and restoration works continue around the clock,” Ukrenergo wrote.
Ukraine has been facing a wide assault on critical infrastructure and power sources since early October.
This week alone, Russian attacks on critical infrastructure in the regions of Kyiv, Cherkasy, Kirovohrad, Kharkiv and Zaporizhzhia have left millions without electricity and water intermittently.
