Ukraine war: Power and water supply hit across Ukraine in 'massive' Russian missile strikes


Ukraine says power and water supply across the country has been badly hit after Russia launched more than 50 missiles targeting critical facilities.

In the capital Kyiv, 80% of residents were without water, and about 350,000 apartments had no electricity, Mayor Vitaliy Klitschko said.

In the north-eastern city of Kharkiv, energy facilities were hit.

The strikes come after Russia blamed Ukraine for a drone attack on its Black Sea Fleet in the annexed Crimea.

Mr Klitschko reported water shortages in Kyiv after an energy facility near the city had been damaged in the Russian attack. He said the supply would be partially restored within three to four hours.

He also said that engineers were urgently deployed to restore electricity supply.


The city authorities said that in Kyiv itself "no hits were recorded" due to "the effective work of the air defence forces".

On Monday morning, missile strikes were also reported in the central Vinnytsia region, as well as Dnipropetrovsk and Zaporizhzhia in the south-east, and Lviv in western Ukraine.

A facility at the Dnipro hydroelectric power plant in the Zaporizhzhia region was also reportedly hit.
