Repair overnight – electricity supply in Ukraine largely intact again


In Ukraine, the power supply problems following the massive Russian missile attacks have largely been resolved. “Most electricity customers have been reconnected to the grid in the different regions,” President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said in a video message on Wednesday. Repair teams from the electricity suppliers and civil defense worked through the night.

The deputy head of the presidential office, Kyrylo Tymoshenko, wrote in the Telegram news service that there were still problems with the electricity supply of several thousand households in the western Ukrainian regions of Volhynia, Zhytomyr, Ternopil and Khmelnytskyi. Power supply has also not yet been fully restored in the northeastern Ukrainian regions of Sumy and Kharkiv.

Power outage since October
The network operator Ukrenerho also warned of unplanned and planned power outages. As early as October, after Russian attacks on the energy grid, power went out regularly, especially in central Ukraine and the capital Kiev.

Russia attacks energy infrastructure
The day before, Russia had caused a blackout with massive rocket attacks on energy infrastructure. At times, about ten million people were left without electricity, Selenskyj said. With more than 90 missiles, it was the most powerful missile strike against infrastructure objects since the start of the Russian invasion on February 24, according to the Ukrainian Air Force. Most of the incoming missiles were intercepted.
