This morning, the Ukrainian media reported that an air alert had been declared in the southern and central regions of the country. Besides, in Nikolaev and area explosions were distributed.
In the evening, an air alert was also announced in the Vinnitsa region. According to Rada deputy Aleksey Goncharenko, air defense systems were operating in the region. Also, according to media reports, explosions were heard in the area.
Also today, the head of the Dnipropetrovsk region, Valentin Reznichenko, said that the Russian military had dealt a new blow to the energy infrastructure of the region. According to him, there was a “strong fire and destruction” at the “life support enterprise”.
In addition, two districts of the Sumy region were left without electricity after artillery strikes, Dmitry Zhivitsky, head of the regional administration, wrote on Telegram.
On Monday and Tuesday, the Russian Armed Forces conducted massive strikes with precision-guided weapons on Ukrainian infrastructure facilities. The Ministry of Defense notes that all designated targets have been hit. As Vladimir Putin emphasized on October 10 at a meeting with permanent members of the Security Council, this is a response to the terrorist attack on the Crimean bridge organized by Kyiv and other attacks on civilian facilities in Russia.
According to Ukrainian Energy Minister Herman Galushchenko, about 30 percent of the country’s energy infrastructure has been hit over the past two days. Damage to electrical equipment was reported due to missile strikes at the Ladyzhynska TPP in the Vinnytsia region. In addition, one of Ukraine’s largest mining companies, Ferrexpo, has suspended operations due to power outages. Also in Ukraine, almost half of the trains are delayed.
