Suicide drones target critical infrastructure again
Russian forces again attacked Ukraine’s power plants on Tuesday, leaving parts of Kiev and other cities without electricity and water. Shortly after 9:00 am, the first explosions were heard in the capital – one less in Spain – and plumes of smoke immediately rose around a power plant near the Dnipro River.
“Engineers are making every effort to restore supplies,” operator DTEK said on Facebook.
The same dynamic was repeated in several regions of the country, such as Zhytomyr, which suffered power and water outages for the second consecutive day following Russian attacks on critical infrastructure, local authorities said.
Unmanned drones, believed to be Iranian-made, that killed at least five people in the capital and four in the northern city of Sumy on Monday also struck civilians yesterday. In the city of Zaporizhia, one of them hit a residential building, killing one of the residents. US says Iran’s ‘kamikaze’ drones are violating sanctions
Russia has stepped up attacks on electrical infrastructure in cities far from the front lines in recent weeks. Authorities rushed to repair the damage, but this damage before winter has raised concerns about how the system will respond.
“Ukraine is under attack from the occupiers. They continue to do what they do best: terrorize and kill civilians,” President Volodymyr Zelensky said in response to the attacks.
